Any MBB fish that went from T2 > industry > MBB? Why did you go back into consulting? I am in a pretty good role right now but besides industry circles, I have no branding. MBB has invited me for interviews. Should I even consider? TC is about the same and I have decent hours. Worth going back for the brand, network, flexibility in/possibility of better exit opps?
People at strategy shops (e.g., LEK, MBB): any precedent of people making a lateral move from other firms after 2-3 years? High performer but dealing with post-merger internal issues.
Anyone from MBB open to having a conversation with me? I’m a part-time MBA candidate and would like to get some advice on how to distinguish myself from my peers
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Is it common to switch from one MBB to other? Feeling kind of let down by the work I’m doing currently.
What is the best way to learn about different roles in FAANG? I was a MBB consultant in India. I am in the US now with a AI products company. I work well on the intersection of technology and business. I have conceptualised and deployed multiple enterprise products over the last 2 years. I am looking to move to a bigger organization now. However I don't want to get into corporate strategy roles. What are some other roles that could be a good fit for me?
How likely is PwC Deals SA to MBB? What would the process entail and what rank would I come in as?

Should I pursue MBA if I already have MBB & PE experience? Current MBB and heading into large-cap PE this year, always fancied a MBA experience as a kid but increasingly uncertain about its value-add in terms of learning / personal development
I would honestly pay fishbowl money if they would let me filter out all these dumb MBB(other firm) posts going on today
MBB interviewers: “What’s your management style”, “What’s your communication preference”, ever hurt to provide a story to illustrate those traits? Or best spend that time elsewhere (“tell me about a time” questions, the case itself, etc). Ideally would do both, but only 30/45 mins here. TIA!
How long is it reasonable to push back MBB interview dates? I have a first round interview at the end of this month but am in the middle of a very intense project. Is pushing the interview back by 2 weeks unreasonable?
How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!
MBB 🐠 a few questions: 1) do you also often have these budget problem discussions at the client not being able to fund the next stage or do they know it‘s gonna be expensive? 2) do engagement consultants do BD in between projects or is it a dedicated acquisition team? 3) how much time do you spend on internal initiatives (and if that depends on the rank)?

What does it mean when someone says that "we are a high leverage organization"? That phrase came up in an interview. I don't remember the full context, but it definitely wasn't in the context of debt - something about the organization's activities, how it makes an impact, hierarchal structure, or something else. It was an interview with a VC firm.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
