I am a recent PhD graduate and looking to get into MBB. Looking for people who can refer me. (I am new on this app, sorry for being straightforward)
I’ve heard some anecdotal stories about consultants leaving MBB and starting their own consulting LLC catering to PE (either doing diligence or other strategy work) and that it can be quite lucrative. Has anyone in this bowl done it who can share lessons learned, the basic economics, and watch outs? I’m curious about exploring the real details further as the autonomy appeals given my current stage of life.
Aside from B4, MBB, FAANG what other companies still sponsoring given this environment? Girlfriend is international and has T20 legal/business education, international legal/MBB/VC experience. Cont.
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!
Hey folks, anybody willing to refer me for consulting position at MBB, Kearney, OW, EYP, S&. I have more than 2 years of experience in market research firm and have worked in a startup in UK and Germany. I had passed the CV screening at Bain, LEK and S& London offices last year. I will share the SS for credibility :) I am happy to have quick chat.
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Got referrals for MBB, but it’s been almost a month since and I haven’t heard back. The referrals were from folks that didn’t know me well, so I assume that they weren’t too fervent in pursuing it? Does it look like I should receive it as a no already? What’s a “normal” timeline in such cases?
In a Big4 deal Analytics group that’s not premier with no path to partner... should I try to move to MBB/T2 to gain traditional consulting experience or try for tech/FAANG... I just wanna make money
Does anyone know what kind of resources the MBB firms provide for entry level consulting staff to pursue business school? Like in terms of applying etc? Obviously anyone from McK would be the most helpful!
Any MBB fish that have exited to Boutique firms? Does the MBB experience carry enough weight to bridge the gap boutique firms face winning new business?
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)
Bombed my final round at an MBB :( got a case that was structured very differently from usual and was just caught so off-guard that I struggled to keep up with all of the information ): send good vibes imma need them
Hello All, I am looking to transition into consulting. I see chatter on other bowla that MBB hiring is on 🔥. I have a PhD in mechanical engineering plsu 7yoe in sales and project management. Would anyone be willing to look at my resume and provide feedback and possibly referrals? Thank you.
What TC should one expect for a director of Corporate Strategy at a large CPG company in the NYC area? (Think Nestle, P&G, Unilever) Background is former MBB manager + 2 years in tech (non-FAANG)
Hello MBB, I saw a posting for a really unique role that seems interesting. Does anyone know about the business insights fellow program at Mckinsey? https://www.mckinsey.com/careers/search-jobs/jobs/businessinsightsfellow-57047#:~:text=BUILD%20is%20a%202%2Dyear,various%20pathways%20at%20the%20firm.
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!
Most interesting post-MBA exit that you’ve seen? Something besides the usual MBB, PE/VC, FAANG, etc.
What was your experience like moving from B4 to MBB? Which firm did you move from / to? How did your work life change?

What’s everyone doing in this recent two week slaughter? I have some heavy FAANG+Nvidia exposure (initial investment ~ $10k) and debating whether to just sit tight and ride or take losses (~1.7k)
What's everyone's high risk investment of choice? I'd like to put around 25% of my NW into high risk investments but don't exactly know how to get started. Anyone have much luck with options?
Parents- Do your toddlers bathe everyday? No judgments here, I grew up outside the America in a tropical region, we had our bathe morning and night as kids. My wife and mother in law think it’s not good for the kids skin to bathe everyday. I need some more data points on folks that grew in the US preferably
I know there’s sometimes a queue for HC but thought I was being reviewed last week and haven’t heard back from the recruiter. Possible to be pushed back a week or two to the next time HC meets without them telling you?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
What boundaries have you set with teams and with clients that have helped you maintain sanity? How have they slowed or assisted your career?
Any thoughts on what a “standard” origination credit system is for associates at a midsized litigation boutique in Texas? The system is solidified for partners but more hazy for associates. Hoping to get some guidance.
Did anyone here use a sleep consultant? If so, do you feel like they added value? Did they give advice that you wouldn’t have thought of / couldn’t easily find on the internet?
