Got 2 offers, 1st from British American Tobacco- Planning Expert 10% pay rise and 2nd from small company(focus on data science) 50% pay rise, Data Science Project Goal: to break into MBB or FAANG
Hot Take: Defining your self-worth by working at FAANG, MBB, or Bulge Bracket Bank or going to a M7 Business School isn’t the move.
What is the typical lag time between start date and offer at MBB as an experienced hire? I was told to expect a start date in a year during off cycle recruiting. Is this normal?
What’s the case for going to MBB for 2-3 years before trying to make a jump to FAANG vs going straight to FAANG post-MBA?
Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?
Is there some comprehensive doc that maps MBB consulting levels to typical FAANG exits, types of groups etc? Or is this tribal knowledge?
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
I heard a rumor that some partners at MBB firms (and maybe other consulting firms, too?) can hold a plane. Is there any truth to this? I know our partners’ connections are strong, but that is one crazy ask….
Did anyone have a dog prior to joining their MBB, and if so, how did you manage the travel?

If you had your pick of MBB, which would you join? Running a very informal poll - like the comment of the corresponding firm below McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
Hi everyone, I have two questions: - In the US, how much importance is placed by MBB on GPA after 3-4 years of work experience? In case of a low GPA, does this weigh a lot or after a while do they almost only weigh work experience? What about for tier 2? - Is it feasible for MBB (or Tier 2)to be hired in the US directly from Europe, or is it better to transfer internally to your own company? Thanks to all
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
Worked 2 years entry role IT consultant at a big4 and 2 years another entry role strategy consultant at T2 cobsulting firm (ATK, LEK, S&), which level at MBB should I apply for? Again entry role?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 audit to an Accounting Advisory role in industry? How was your experience? Is the work life balance any different than B4?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Best SPG property to stay in London?
If you could work remotely full time and live anywhere in the US where would you choose to live? (Assuming all visa hassles addresses around proximity to office etc)

Tax Staff at midsized looking for exit opps into a business/finance role. I have my CPA and MS Tax. Would I be better off trying to get a job at B4 audit then industry or are there better options?

I’ve been in usdc for less than a year and I like the work for the most part but I’m really feeling not great about my salary. If I found a competing offer do you think usdc leadship would try to retain me given I’ve been here for such a short amount of time?

How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run
