So you’re currently at PWC and want to go to MBB and you’re choosing between stepping to KPMG or ACN? If I understand correctly, neither will help you more than your currently role.

My current role is more accounting based

I think Acn prob has the stronger name…but considering you’d need to network to get interviews anyways, I’d go to kpmg strategy so you can demonstrate that you’ve been doing the same type of work. However, if you’re at pwc, if you can somehow finesse into Strategy&, you’d have a very strong case for mbb

kpmg strat will be better if/when you actually have an interview and need to draw on anecdotes. acn mc will be more helpful in landing the interview. that said i share the same skepticism about leaving just to try and leave again, even if it is accounting

Why are you considering accenture MC why not the Strategy practice?

Most firms, including MBB, are pushing hard to strengthen diversity numbers. By today’s standards you have to be an extremely wealthy white male to be excluded in which case you don’t need a consulting job anyway. I’d look for national diversity conferences

Does anyone have an archive of consulting prep casebooks, courses/programs (think iGotAnOffer, MConsultingPrep etc) ?

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%
