Which mbb has the best wlb in NYC?

It's Bain pretty much anywhere in the US although by a very slight margin (~5%). Largely driven by staffing and travel model vs competition. I wouldn't make any decisions between MBB based on WLB - none are good.

Two follow ups:
1. What is the standard hours Mck/BCG?
2. How can are y’all making this bearable for a long period of time?

I currently am at a boutique firm, we have the odd 70-80 week but otherwise it’s pretty stable at 50-55 for 90% of the year. Comp is decent as well, worth the switch?

I have not had less than 70 since pandemic, but before regularly had 50 hr weeks

When I’ve checked the hours of my office, it’s been low 60s on average when on active casework. Not NYC though so I don’t know if different

Thoughts on a PT MBA (Kellogg, HAAS, Booth) vs. T14 full time MBA. I am a consultant in S& that makes over $200k+ a year right now and will make $300+ in 2 years or so (will be SM by then). If I left PwC for a full time MBA, I feel like I am setting myself back (e.g., full time MBA, maybe switch to MBB associate, etc. - which is an upgrade on prestige and a downgrade on comp.) Primary reason for the MBA is to get into a CXO role of a PE backed company someday.

Hi all - curious as to what you’re preferred medium for learning and prepping about case interviewing. I’m a former EM at MBB and had coached and interviewed hundreds of folks (still do today). I know there’s a lot of material out there already but let’s assume I can add value and have a solid approach/methodology - would you prefer an an ebook or online course? Also what would you pay for each? (If anything at all lol)

I'm moving from industry to consulting and accepted an offer with a pretty big firm (not Big 4 or MBB). I already put in two weeks notice with my current company.

I just had a final round interview with a Big 4 firm and I received an email today that suggests I will be receiving an offer from them.

If the Big 4 firm presents a comp package that matches or exceeds the offer I accepted, I will most likely accept their offer.

How do I go about navigating reneging the first offer I accepted?
