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

If you could ask the managing partner of an MBB firm any question anonymously, what would you ask?
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?

I am planning to exit to tech so I had a conversation with a friend. My friend exits to a product management role at a big tech after mba. He shared that the overall competency varies a lot and there are tons of incompetent PMs. (Don’t expect the smooth cooperation like the ones you have with your team now.) Unlike comsulting, you won’t be promoted super fast even if you are a top performer. Any thoughts?McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group Amazon Microsoft Facebook (Meta)

Cautious to keep dumping money into s&p since so much I put in was during aggressive growth of last 1.5 yrs.

Need $30k for wedding soon, then keep emergency fund. So ~$100k..WWYD?

What are typical exit salaries? Aka if your spouse/roommate/friend isn’t in consulting, what do they make, if they’re doing in-house strategy or marketing. I’m seeing an opportunity for 60K which would be a pay cut from what I currently make, but consulting has ruined what is “normal” for post MBA salary
An "is it normal" q from a relatively new in-house counsel coming from 2 years in big law— feeling like you’re relying on gut and Google most of the time/only learning about the business incrementally so there’s always some sort of "do we still comply with Contract X given Fact Y" worry popping up in your head

When should I start applying to full-time positions if I graduate in December 2022? I currently have an internship this summer in consulting at IBM. And last summer I interned at the Federal Reserve doing compliance and digital transformation. I don't know if I will return to IBM, but I will decide on that based on the experience I have at the internship. However in the mean time I want to explore and see what other opportunities there are. Any advice on when and where to apply for full-time?
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.

I was interviewing w a FAANG company and was moved on to the 2nd round, before I told them I wanted to withdraw my application (didn’t think it was a good fit initially) However after a few months of thinking, I think it may be an okay gig after all (I really hate consulting). Anyway I can apply again or restart the process or am I SOL here?
