When someone from Accenture applied to MBB do you guys laugh or take them serious? Trying to see what my chances are of getting in.

nope, ZS and Accenture get laughed out of the room. Only Deloitte is taken seriously bc MBBD

sounds like Management Consulted likes making generalizations

If you think they would laugh, it sounds like you need to check on your self-esteem. They hire fresh college grads. Do you remember how useless you were as a fresh college grad? I’m sure you’ve learned a lot and have a ton of experience, get excited to share it.

Share some examples 👀 That’s pretty cool

Switched from Accenture to BCG and I found every interviewer was interested in my past experiences and even my case teams have been super respectful of my past experiences. I don’t find that people look down on your past experience unless you yourself look down on it / project that vibe.

Why would anyone laugh? If you have relevant experience you’ll be interviewed, simple as that

I know multiple people we hired from Accenture

yeah I don't understand why these questions are even asked. You'll see plenty switched on LinkedIn. And at the end of the day, they're all just companies who still will hire based on the skills they need.

On a slight tangent, Google has hired many many ex-Accenture ppl too. Don't give into perceptions and focus on actual work experience.

Current Manager in my project is former Accenture. So I would say the move is feasible, but it depends on the tenure and may come with “discount”. He had a higher tenure at Acc than at Bain. Once inside, I’d say we’re all the same though. He is actually bringing a great outside perspective and has been doing a great job

Same question for ZS. Y’know, “hypothetically” if i was interested

Since MBB are also investing in building digital capabilities, would they be open to hiring folks with Consulting experience in IoT?

I laugh and cry it’s so comical tbh

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.
