I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
I have sponsorship from my consulting firm (tuition, requires 3 year commitment, definitely does not pay like MBB/T2). I got a 60k scholarship from Kellogg, should I just consider making a move to MBB/T2?
How competitive is the mbb and tier 2 consulting industry. Any tips on how to best survive and succeed vs other smart peers?
Is 112K for a startup good for 2 YOE in MBB in nyc? I was personally targeting 135K at least but this seems interesting
MBB? More like DPEK
Is there an unstated GMAT cutoff for MBA internship interviews with MBB? And if so, what is this range?
Move-up Anyone seen or know anyone that traded-up from one MBB to another MBB? Eg. A BCG PL hired as Principal at Bain; a Principal at Bain hired as Partner at McK; a consultant at McK hired a M etc
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.
How does BCG’s operations practices score as compared to McKinsey and Bain? Want to switch to MBB for operations. Need some perspective. Thank you
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
MBB folks at Google Cloud S&O- how do you like the work? Is the work too much Ops focused?
How does EYs senior manager translate into a MBB model? Working alongside an EY SM who thinks they’re a junior/associate partner but whose responsibilities seem to match an EM. Also is it normal for Big 4s to ignore juniors? This SM refuses to listen to anything I say and gets annoyed anytime I speak in a meeting or when I said I was talking to the partner directly - whereas my McK team proactively encourages me too.
How do you view yourself as a partner vs MBB partners? Personally, I start seeing differences even among PwC and S& partners. Just want to understand where you see your strengths vs weaknesses
MBB folks: when you refer a candidate what do you look for? I feel that I have a strong background and I just need to land on that interview to win
Hit up the director of an MBB practice on LinkedIn and he responded that we should talk. Need advice on how to steer the conversation in my favour. Can I outrightly ask for a referral?
Want to join PE from a non-MBB firm. From an advanced degree (PhD) background and hence mostly exposed to the LS industry. Want to know if anyone did this transition: PhD > Consulting > PE. Is there any way to go for LS specific teams in PE ?
Dear MBB fishes, requesting your immediate guidance on data engineering practice. I currently have to pick one between FAANG vs MBB. Same base but 25K RSU difference. Please help me with your insights! Moving from industry in Midwest region.

DCA -> LAX ... anyone has any experiences or recommendations? Trying to make my mind between sticking with AA or switching back to Delta (used to fly with them) 🤷🏼♀️
Hi fellow fishes, I've been offered a Tech strategy role at PWC SDC, Bangalore. My total experience is of 6 years (2.5 pre-MBA and 3.5 post-MBA). The offered role is of the same domain in which I've been working for the last 3.5 years @ACN. PWC are offering me a Senior Associate position. My question is - should I or can I negotiate with the HR to give me a better position (e.g. Manager) than the Senior Associate? Thanks in advance!
Hi! Need help evaluating some offers and thinking about long term growth and trajectory. Have little more than 2 YOE in consulting. Also interviewing with PwC Strategy&, but no offer yet. Curious if the Deloitte name will carry me further than ZS? Want to ultimately get an MBA in the near future. TIA! 1. Deloitte, CBO TC ~95K 2. ZS, SIP TC ~130K 3. Startup (unicorn) TC (with stock options after 1Y) ~95K
Anyone know what the Salary range for an Operational Risk Officer at Bank of America or Wells Fargo ? Also, do you know if they do sign on bonuses? ￼7YOE
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
Is Premium Processing stopped right now for H1B transfers? Might have to defer the job hunting if PP can’t be done as switching on acknowledgement seems a bad idea in current scenario.
I filed prevailing wages in June this year under H1b. When would I expect to receive response from DOL?
