Said the A1

People are biased here and ZS is over represented because of their size. You will find ZS people here at FB arguing they do the same work as MBB. The reality is that ZS is a huge firm, one third of it is BT. Another good chunk is ops. Yes I am sure they do some work in strategy but being a pure strategy firm is something else. You can check LinkedIn for exits. Otherwise all these companies are great. Anyone is lucky to work for any of them.

LEK tends to work with smaller pharma and new modality biotech on market assessment, launch, new product planning questions. McK and BCG work more with larger companies with willingness to pay at the higher price points, for topics at the enterprise level eg R&D strategy, operating model, etc Not sure about Bain in pharma.

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

Coming from Big 4 with 2 YOE. Have 2 offers FAANG (finance / strategy role) vs. MBB entry level. What’s the best option?

Hey guys, I just found this group and I’m hoping for some guidance/advice! I’m hoping to get into one of the Big 4s or MBB and finally got a few referrals once joining FB. I am 29, have an MA in IOP, and 10 YEO. I have never worked for a non-Jewish company (despite trying pretty damn hard to get out) and I’m freaking out. I have no concept of normal professionalism, strategy for navigating the workplace and the real world in corporate USA,(cont. in comment)

Recently got an MBB offer. Really excited about it but start date isn’t until mid-March. How long should I wait to give notice to my current employer? It’s a large, well-known tech company but our team is pretty small and my departure will definitely cause a bit of chaos in the short term. Don’t want to burn any bridges, but at the end of the day I also know they’ll be fine. Thoughts on giving standard 2-weeks vs a bit longer, say 4?

Fishes, I’m one step closer to securing an exit and would like to thank you all for the support. Now, I need advice on negotiating an offer from Google StratOps, and have a couple of questions where some views (esp. from ex-MBB) would be useful: 1. What’s the typical TC bump MBB consultants are able to get when moving to FAANG StratOps / BizOps roles? 2. Does the base comp increase, remain constant, or decrease? TIA, as always!

I don’t really know what consultants do…like MBB, what do you guys do? Don’t mean this in on offensive way, generally never gave it thought. If someone asked me, I’d say “companies hire them to do a bunch of market research and advise on what business decisions they should make”. What do you do all day? I just think of a bunch of PowerPoint decks - why are you all so busy?
