Anyone familiar with Splunk? I’m having an exploratory convo with a recruiter tmrw but curious about the wlb@and pay as it compares to b4 consulting. TIA!
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
B4 Recruiter: B4 have almost identical experiences, so you’ll fit right in. Same B4 recruiter: Even though you’re on the cusp of your 2nd promo, we’ll bring you in at the entry level so that you can adjust to the firm and be set up for success.
for those of you who have gotten multiple offers from MBB, which did you choose and why? Looking back would you have done the same
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
There's a consulting team (probably big 4) that's been working in the conference room next to mine and they have 2 Costco-sized bags of trail mix on their table. #respect
How difficult is it to jump from a Big4 to MBB?
Is it possible to land a PM job at FAANG (excluding Amazon) without prior PM or technical background?

Hello All, I have a request. Would any folks working at MBB in Toronto be willing to have a quick chat? I am looking to transition into consulting and would like to seek advice and or suggestions about the application process. Thank you.
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
Which job would you take? 200k TC with 40 hours a week VS. 240k TC with 60 hours a week (FAANG-Amazon)?
I am currently interviewing for one of the FAANG companies. If this works out, I will be 6-7 months pregnant by the time I actually join them. Should I disclose this while I interview? Or should I disclose after accepting the offer?
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Anyone at b4 merge your phone number to the company issued cell phone? Do they get to keep your number if you leave? I’ve had the same phone number my entire life and don’t want to lose it…not that I ever plan on leaving.

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
Speaking of boutique firms. What's the name of the trendy millennial one with crazy health benefits that was ranked #1 recently for fun and WLB? I think it was in PA and did primarily healthcare...
Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies. He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?

I’ve had one interview at a company setup through a recruiter. The first interview the hiring manager said that they were posting the job on their website that day to ‘cast a wider net to get the best talent’. Immediately after the interview he told the recruiter he wanted to bring me onsite in 2 weeks. So I’m in the final round tomorrow, but now today two other recruiters contacted me about what seemed to be this job. Cont..
What do you do when your SO is so naive that she tells her employer during a promotion interview that her long term plan is a career in academia.
