Hi all! I’m talking to someone tomorrow on the team for a role I’m super keen on. Luckily enough (not sure If this is good timing) when I reached out to them a few weeks ago and confirmed the time for us to connect, a job in their area opened up a few days later. I’m super keen on trying to push my application and ask about the role (already applied but without a referral :() How would you approach the conversation? I’m a little intimidated since it’s at a hot tech company and they’re MBB.
What separates MBB from the rest? Work output, pace, branding? How often do people from non mbb firms successfully move to them? What skills make candidates stand out?
Do you enjoy the work at MBB? I know the hours can be long, but is the work interesting and/or enjoyable?
MD friend looking to make switch to consulting. Is MBB best option? Also any referrals? Chi based
MBB recruiter said I'd hear about my application (whether or not I'd get an interview) by today. haven't heard a word - what should I do? I'm thinking of sending a gentle reminder tomorrow morning, but definitely don't want to look pushy
I am currently a SA at EY-Parthenon on the West Coast and looking to case for MBB. Comment if interested.
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
How do I get MBB good @ PPT? I’m a staff 2 in consulting & have only had long term projects; teams rarely used decks. I know ppt well, so the Q is more directed towards designing pretty slides.
What are typical exit opportunities for MBB project leaders/team leaders/engagement managers?
Career trajectory for MBB vs PE megafunds? Is it harder to make partner at PE firms compared to at consulting firms?
How difficult/easy would it be to go into MBB from a just outside M7 school, with 2-3 years of pre-MBA experience and strong performance at a smaller tier 2 firm? (Parthenon/S&/ATK/LEK/OW)
Turning 30 and just feel like I’m getting dumber. I am a smart person (at least relatively) and work at MBB but lately I just feel as though I have not been as sharp as I normally am. I spent the last week drinking and going out till 3am every night (NYC) so that doesn’t help but are there any tips to regain my form and just become smarter?
What’re mbb staffing models like? I heard bain was moving to more regional. This true across the board? Mck and bcg global/national/regional?
All my MBB 🐠, is there anyone who would be willing to chat with me about your role and experience, the company culture and work and potentially work with me to see if I am a good fit and also if you would be willing to refer me? I am currently a Senior Consultant at EY.
"URGENT: Status Match" - my subject line to make sure Virgin status matched me before my United status expired. Somehow it worked and they matched me within 24 hours. #justintime
Planning to visit India later this year, and also need to get my visa stamped (current stamp expired in 2016). I have an I-797 number from the approved extension, and another one from an amendment...
Wait so entry level salary is 25% higher in SF and cost of living adjustment for relocating in 2nd year is 16-20%? This is so fucked up EY.
Folks at MBB in EU/UK are your hours and culture as brutal as US? Heard from my Australian colleagues it can vary quite a bit. Appreciate your responses as I dream to relocate!

Went on a date and he has a child on the way....... should I just step away? would y'all date a man with a child on the way?
I watched an interview with a psychologist who explained Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and realized this describes my ex to a T. Delusions of grandeur, prone to fits of rage, vain, jealous, thinks everyone is beneath him, entitled. I tried to love him even harder and accommodated every whim to try and make it work. And basically the doctor said that Narcissists don’t change. I’m sad that I wasted 3 years of my life but glad that I’m out. Anyone else healing from dating a Narcissist?
Ex-kpmg employee here so can’t post in that bowl but does anyone here know how pension plan works? I was vested based on time with firm but does the money stay there til retirement or can you request lump sum payout and invest it how you want? Thanks!
Anyone have an untraditional role or title in consulting? I am working on my growth plan but the standard roles just don’t inspire me. Dream role ideas welcome!
How do you spend you bench time? Feel like I should take adventage of the downtime but worry that I might not seem proactive enough for optics.
Will Deloitte allow me to work from India for sometime (3-4 weeks) ? Planning to visit India for visa stamping. PS: 80 percent team on my project is from USI and there will be no client confidentiality issues.
