Hi there! I’m curious if anyone has tips for approaching a case interview or a framework to follow for a consulting internship?
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
For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
What’s (roughly) total comp at MBB 2, 4, & 6 years out of b school? Really curious about salary progression but can’t find a reliable source. Thanks for your input!!
Friend wants to go into consulting (MBB) but is not good at casing - intelligent but cannot think quickly and cracks under pressure. Would a lot of practice help if it doesn’t come naturally to him?
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.
Some intern really messed up 😤
Last summer I mentored an intern who was later taken on full-time by a different team at our agency. Today I found out he has a 2 month shoot in Tahiti while I'm here stuck making banners. I know...
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
What made your internship special and why did you want to join your firm? Think, fun things or small touches that went a long way, too.

What is the best way to apply for internship at big4? Go to a recruiter on campus or apply on their website. Seeking internship.
Interned at PwC this summer (going to be junior this fall), got a return offer for next summer that expires Sep 1st, got an interview with McKinsey approximately mid September and they said that I could expedite if I have competing offers. Does it help or hurt my chances of getting the Mck internship if I expedite and do it ASAP or will there not be enough turn around time in general to get an answer?
Is it just me but I think ex-[MBB] makes sense and even ex-Deloitte or any of the bigger prominent firms because it actually speaks to an active Alumni group or a profession with a broad skillset. But ex-[Bank] looks a bit strange. Please educate me! Am I being a snob?
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
Anyone heard of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan? Thoughts about culture and progression there?
I’ve never quit anything in my life. But I hate my job and see no way out and no future. I work 80 hours a week and don’t even have time to interview, and am out of pto. Anyone btdt?
Morning fishes!! I appreciate all the help everyone on here has given me. Though I have not landed a new gig phone screens and interviews are starting to come in after a few months of applying to places. Hopefully this is the month. 🤞
Getting an offer without ever doing an in-person interview (i.e. Skype only). Is it a thing?
For a strategy-esque (non-PM) career trajectory in FAANG/tech, what’s the comp trajectory look like? Can one ever reach MBB partner-like comp? MBB’s pay trajectory is too good to leave, but maybe I’m being naive
