Any thoughts on the MBA program at Boston University? Is Boston University MBA good enough for positions at FAANG or MBB? And what about the MBA program at MIT?
For those who have gotten into HSW without having started a startup/non-profit, worked at MBB/PE/FAANG, or gone to Ivy/MIT/Stanford undergrad, could you please share your profile/story? -ORM & mildly above average gal trying to find hope
MBB fish any advice on nailing a virtual interview? What should candidates do differently (if anything)?
Potentially silly questions but when people generally say that you have to be at MBB to make the jump to PE, are these folks doing PE type work like diligence or something relevant or are they doing more broad type of consulting and getting into PE because they have the MBB brand?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
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.
Want to join PE from a non-MBB firm. From an advanced degree (PhD) background and hence mostly exposed to the LS industry. Want to know if anyone did this transition: PhD > Consulting > PE. Is there any way to go for LS specific teams in PE ?
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
MBB really missed the boat on this practice area
Anyone in govt services at MBB willing to chat? Feeling like my experience in GPS/my specific area of expertise is putting me in a niche
For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
Is there some comprehensive doc that maps MBB consulting levels to typical FAANG exits, types of groups etc? Or is this tribal knowledge?
Wait! Most people in this group aren’t mbb! So, this group isn’t how we can network and figure our next steps?
Traveling during the Cubs game tonight and Delta of course has no live TV. Sad. :-( Go Cubs! ⚾️
The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.

What’s a typical salary for an acd in philly?
Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
Anyone working for a Big 4 Salesforce practice in Germany willing to have a chat/give a referral?
Flying on a Friday. Got upgraded on both flights with a layover at DFW. It's been a boozy afternoon.
Does your district have the”Teacher Coordinator for the Provisional Teacher Program” position? If so, were any of you teacher coordinators and can you tell me your experience?
Google contacted me via LI about a strategy and operations role. I saw on LI that of my 30 business school friends who work at Google, 0 are in S&O. Why do you think this is the case? It could be random chance, but is S&O low paid, or otherwise unattractive for MBA grads for a different reason? 🤔
