How often does MBB do ERP design?
Thoughts? Which is more competitive for HSW MBA: Stay on 1 year and get promoted to manager at MBB (3 YOE at promotion) or exit as an associate to a top PE fund but forgo the manager promotion? Hoping to differentiate my app and could always try and exit after promo but aiming to apply in 2023 and would have very limited time in the new role
Is an MBA worth it? Why do 🐠 want to go?
Shot at MBB? Opportunity cost? Career change? Is it worth the massive cost? To me it’s only worth it at M7.
Looking for a brave soul willing to extend their hand and provide a referral to MBB in NYC. I have 4 YOE with a Big4 and a boutique strategy consulting firm in NYC, and am ready to destroy the interview process. Let's get that referral bread! McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Can an older person (36yo, 12yoe at Deloitte) break into MBB? I’m hating how slow the progression is at Deloitte. It’s minimum 15 years to make parter in SAP implementation. Doing a top executive MBA right now if it helps. Went to a top undergrad bschool but my GPA was too bad to get into MBB as I partied a lot. Would I enter MBB at the EM level? Can I have a path to partnership at MBB after entering as an older hire?
At which point in the hiring process do you negotiate salary (I suppose room only to negotiate relocation/sign-on)
Any idea of what sign-on (%of base) I should aim for? South East Asia offices
Hi, I’m about to graduate from my MBA and want to move back to India. Looking for possible openings at MBB/Kearney. Anyone willing to share or recommend?
Any advice on how to overcome imposter syndrome? I got a job offer at MBB and start in the fall. For whatever reason, I don’t feel like I deserve the job and I worry that I won’t be able to keep up with everyone else. I’m from a non target school and felt like I had average interviews. I guess I shouldn’t discount myself, but I’m just worried that they made a mistake hiring me. Has anyone else had similar feelings?
Once you are in a particular MBB firm is it easy to switch to another? (Let’s say McKinsey to BCG, or vice versa).
Current MBB consultants: would it be off-putting if a potential candidate cold emails you, does a self intro, attach their resume and ask politely for a referral if fit? Or do people prefer that organic way of growing a connection by saying “hop on a chat”without the explicit use of “referral”?
Any job opportunities in ME with 4-5 YOE in life sciences consulting (think ZS, LEK, Putnam, CV etc.)? Is MBB an option?
Know I don’t want IB / PE / VC or MBB coming out of an MBA. FAANG seems okay but overhyped - are there no other exits with great ROI?
I am curious to hear how much (as % of base salary) people get from bonuses per year - mostly looking at MBB and Big 4
Anyone ever seen jump from Big4 to MBB?
Getting in MBB as manager from other strategy consulting firms: must have and nice to have?
Hi, considering moving to Australia, targeting strategy roles (ex MBB exp). Would I be at a disadvantage during the application process if I do require a visa? Do you know of any successful cases? Otherwise, what are the ways to settle down and work in Australia? Got a EU passport. Cheers!

Ministry of supply suits. Anyone tried? Only saw online and seems horrible (but tempting at the same time :D)
I work as an Information System Security Officer. I've been in this position for a few years now. I've been wanting to do something more technical lately (cloud computing/ethical hacking), but I'm not sure how to make the leap. The ISSO function entails a lot of paperwork, security enforcement, auditing, and reporting. I recognize the significance of the position, but to be honest, I find it tedious. Any tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just started with a company as an HR Generalist. Within the 3 weeks of being there, my boss’s boss left, and today I found out my boss gave notice. HR is not valued at the company and it’s disheartening to know I was hired into a mess. I am now actively looking but how do I explain to other employers why I am actively looking and what do I put on my resume? I have never had to deal with this before.
Curious for those that work in healthcare - does your company have parental leave and if so how much and for who (birthing/non-birthing, adoptive parents)?
Curious if an offer I have is reasonable as I’m new to CSM space:

Mid-market CSM position.
Probably standard but company I just got offer from is willing to pay my current sign on bonus that will be clawed back, annual bonus that wouldn’t be paid until a few months from now, and a sign on bonus if I join relatively soon. 😭

We are exploring having a third party come in and assess our I&D efforts across our company. We have many locations across North America. Is anyone aware of an entity who does this? We have found questionnaires through target organizations and have done anonymous employee surveys but are hoping to find someone who can do an assessment for gender, minorities, disabilities, 2SLGBTQ+, etc. and provide feedback on the actual employee experience and where we may have blind spots.
