I have close to 9 years of experience with technology consulting across India and the US with Deloitte US( I was hired at the india offices of Deloitte US). I have been admitted to Ivey business school for 2023 batch. Post MBA, I want to make a move to management consulting as that was one of the biggest driving factor for me to purse an MBA. From my research I gathered that getting into MBB is extremely difficult due to very few openings. What can I do to boost my chances of getting into MBB?

Anyone have insights for interview process for McKinsey cyber specialist role. Would really appreciate details on type of cases, difficulty of cases, things to expect in technical round. TIA!
Ex-Big 4 folks at MBB: how has the experience been for you so far? Any of you been in a situation where you’re coming to a MBB in a lower role but have excelled in moving up quickly? (Or not.) Thinking about making the leap but would love to hear if the MBB hype was worth it. (FWIW: My work hours are 65-80/wk so I’m pressed to think it’ll be that much worse on the other side.)
Unpopular opinion: consulting is not any more challenging nor does it generate more experience than working in a demanding/high-profile role at a large company or startup. As someone who’s been in all three, I don’t see how people can argue consulting YOE > operating YOE. In fact, I could easily argue the opposite. What do y’all think (I’m expecting serious hate lol)

Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?

Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%
I’m in strategy consulting and performing in the middle of the pack, but I honestly think my talents and enjoyment lie in administration. Are there prestigious jobs that would perform this role?

Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
