I have always gone to MBB final rounds in the past but ultimately don't get the offer. How do I improve?
Feel as if I’m constantly behind peers in terms of career progression (e.g. MBB/ FAANG) despite having a decent-ish background (tier 2 consulting and now at top tier finance company in strategy role). I find that the companies I’ve worked at have very set progression based on tenure, with no room for negotiation. I’m really ambitious/ hardworking and I am not sure where to go that would match my goals of career progression. Is it just MBB/ FAANG or is there anywhere else? Any ideas?
PwC deals vs MBB. WLB, comp, starting a career, interesting projects, coworkers. Currently doing tech consulting and thinking of switching to strategy for full time offer.
This has been asked b4 sorry but how much do you make at MBB 2 years and 3 years out of undergrad all-in? Happy to receive individual stats from M, B and B. Thanks! :)
Currently a first year MO analyst, looking to possibly move into consulting. Is it possible to move into MBB w/o an MBA?
At a B4 now. I want to stay in consulting. Should I be considering any other firms besides MBB and T2?
How many years back do background checks go, especially at the MBB? Is it the usual 5 years, or more than that?
Is getting an MBA to go MBB (if not from target school) just a badge of “elite-ness”? Like are there things you’re learning that you couldn’t have done had you been able to go there with no MBA ?
For MBB recruiting, does it matter if you go to an M7 if you don’t have a good GPA (<3.2) ? Like if you don’t have a decent GPA is it worth going through recruiting at all?
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Deciding between Kearney and L.E.K for a summer associate role, looking at hopefully transitioning to MBB for full time (dream role, though I like both other firms perfectly fine). Between DT at Kearney and LEK generalist which profile lends best to switching up a tier?

Biggest pitfalls in lateraling to MBB at Consultant-level instead of taking B4 manager promo (other than being consultant-level for 2 more years)?
How do you get in front of recruiters/HR to join a PE firm? Looking at growth funds, ops roles, moving over from MBB
For those who have left MBB for PE, how does WLB compare and what type of fund did you go to (LMM/MM/MF/etc.)? Would you do it again?
When being asked “why MBB”, is in-person working a legit reason?
I joined a T2 last fall and have so far worked in-person with team for 3 days in total. I’ve never traveled. I’m positive that this working style will last at least throughout this year
While I like what I do (and I believe I’m decently well at it), I want to get more in-person working and traveling opportunities to connect with my team
Is BCG becoming the largest of MBB in 2022?

Any Scimitar 🐠 or folks familiar with Scimitar? A colleague at EY just accepted a role there and claims the total comp is 40% more than his total comp at EY and he was at the very top of the senior consultant pay band as an MBA hire. The folks on LinkedIn look like a bunch of former PwCers.

As a new analyst 3 weeks in, how should I be biking my hours. I’m in fed so we bill 40hrs. Ive been working 50 and billing 50. Haven’t been told anything yet but was wondering if over billing somewhat consistently comes with ramifications? Also should I bill weekends?
