Anybody regret joining MBB or similar consulting firms? What did you do—exit fast or stick it out? Just joined out of undergrad and think I made a big mistake. I realize it’s a great opportunity, but it feels like a bad fit for me personally. I feel so inauthentic at work, and the long hours and stress are already taking a toll

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Hello Ladies, so I am seeing someone like we have met for a couple of days and now we are in different time zones. I am trying to talk and have communication but he only speak when he is free. Also, he always keeps on saying that he has a lot of work (MBB) which I get it, but should you proactively try and take out time to have communication especially when you are in different time zones.
