MBB 🐠: I’ve got 3yrs consulting experience at IBM (agile exp.), state school for undergrad, CSM and secret clearance. Do I have a shot at associate at MBB or do I absolutely need to pursue MBA first?
Can you survive with no skills? Am exiting MBB for VC soon and recently realized I don’t have any differentiated skills, just general problem solving. Will I be able to just coast along forever?
Any experienced folks out there make the move from B4 management consulting to MBB with no MBA? Currently an M at B4 but considering the possibility of a move in the near future. Would love to hear your experience.
Took the GRE instead of GMAT, does consulting firm like MBB look at those if it’s high enough?
MBB interview tomorrow. I’ve been studying hard for the last two weeks. Do I go to my intramural b-ball game @ 9pm or study the rest of the night. Confidence level 50%
Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...
Which of B4 + MBB pays SWE/DS the most? I know they can't compare to FAANG, but just among these guys, who pays the most? Who has the best talent/tech implementations?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Are public sector projects highly competitive to get onto at the different MBB firms? Saw a story today saying that the social sector is <5% of revenue, with some consultants saying...
STARTUP FOUNDERS and FAANG: would you rather hire MBB with 3-4 years of exp or Tier 2 with 5-6 years? If you could isolate those variables and everything else held constant.
Tuck vs Ross ($$) goal is MBB or big tech
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
Are MBB still hiring like crazy?

Can anyone speak the the human capital practices at their firm? I'm currently in HC consulting and want to continue working in the field, but not sure what opportunities there are in MBB.
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
I recently joined Deloitte (experienced hire with 4 yoe from ACN), I’m staffed on a project for the partner that recruited me. The partner told me to record every call (internal and external) and when I asked if just needed notes she said she wants a recording of every one....is this normal Deloitte behaviour?
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires. What should I do...if the recruiter comes back with the joining date. Should I join? What is the business situation at Guidehouse right now?

People that’ve switched from Big 4 to industry or vice versa, could you share the reason for your switch, and if you regret the move? And which level were you when you made the change?
I just had an employee tell me they are on the verge of quitting due to burnout- actually going to quit but was told to talk to HR for options (we don't have any in place). The manager wants to keep them as they are one of our best employees. Any recommendations on how to help alleviate burnout when the cause is from customers rather than the company? Is it worth it to let the employee leave and spend months looking for a replacement causing more stress/burnout with others?

I've been passed up for promotion. I know that if my mental health had been better this past year, I probably would have been promoted. Spent too many days just trying to survive rather than excel. 😡
