Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
Any good prep suggestions before starting MBA. I am headed to the IESE MBA program in Sep 2020. Post MBA goal is to join MBB. Have been working in Tech consulting and looking to make a shift....
Is it possible to get laid off 1yr in from an MBB and get hired by another? What’s the story to tell?
I’ve been working in cyber risk in the federal sector for a few years and I’m finding I enjoy “advise” projects much more than operate/implement (I’m guessing on the implement piece since I’ve done pursuits for it and seen the technical sections, but I haven’t done the work). If I wanted to pivot into a strategy firm and stay federal (or government in general), what firms would be ideal? I’m not basing it off prestige (MBB vs non MBB).
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?

Those of you who were married before you joined consulting, did you get pushback from your spouse? Mine was a MBB consultant before marriage. When I got an MBB offer our relationship changed (contd)..
Anyone with experience of switching from Big4 to MBB? 1) Recruitment 2) Insights on changes

I plan to reapply in a year or so.

I am a senior ETL developer and I make 130K cad. I want to increase my income. In most companies I see that they pay the same for senior data engineers or data architects. What are the companies or roles should I target in order to raise my income? (PS - I am not interested in non technical or consulting roles)
How does one transition from big 4 to T2 (like Kearney, LEK, OW etc). I’ve been at EY for a few months now but my project has been nothing but staff aug and a vague technology transformation project for a bank. I was really interested in the strategy work in my undergrad and choose to go the consulting route instead of IB because I wanted to help clients make decisions and it seems like I can mainly get it at T2 firms. Would love some advice on how to get this transition started
