How many companies have you worked for previously? At least for BCG it was pretty quick once I uploaded all the required documentation. You will likely need to gather HR contact info, W2s, employment contracts/offer letters and a copy of your degree(s).

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?

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB.

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!

I just found out I am being paid less than both of the people I manage ($6k and $10k less). The issue though is they both have a different job than me - they are project managers and I am in more of an overarching strategy role. But I do manage and represent my entire dept. I haven’t been at my company for a full year yet so negotiating my salary is hard (especially because we are very large and matrixed). How would you approach this? Is this normal? I’m just feeling very frustrated.
