Our Associate Consultant class is meaningfully larger than our Consultant class every year. That’s not exactly undergrads vs MBAs, but comparable.

Thanks! that’s more along what I was after anyways (coming in as an associate as a 1 year out of UG experienced hire)

At BCG, our consultant class is a bit larger than our associate class. I’d estimate it at 40/60 for A/C

Varies a ton between firms. Bain’s model has more ACs than Cs. We’re probably 2:1 Cs vs As. McK has more As (their post MBA title) than BAs but I don’t know how closely the ratio mirrors ours.

Not MECE 😎 Some of us enter MBB as experienced Cs with no MBA. Or post grad.

Agree here but I think the % is still relatively small, no?

Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated

Is it just me or do I feel that brand-level consulting (e.g., product strategy) is more interesting, on balance, than management consulting? But it seems like the market rates for these kind of projects are lower than MC projects. Does MBB play in this product strategy space, or is it mostly other boutiques and ZS/LEK? Like is there a consistent competitor set we’re bidding against?

Looking for my first Admin job and had a great first interview with a hiring manager for a small start up consulting co. Next was the technical exercise, half built in flow and I explained I have not worked in it. Hiring mgr said that’s fine and to take my time. Interview was 3 days before Xmas, and I turned in technical exercise 2 weeks and 2 days later. I think I did a great job considering I had to figure it out with very little experience. To date, my submission hasn’t been reviewed.
