For those that have done MBB background checks, what does "5 years paid employment history" mean: 1. Paid employment history from the past 5 years i.e. December 2016 - December 2021 2. 60 months of paid employment history
What are some of the best consulting firms for a software engineer? Is MBB still considered elite in this area too?
Worth going from MBB to LMM PE? 2 years post undergrad. Is LMM money even equal to consulting?
What are post-MBA MBB salaries in Europe and Asia? I keep hearing that they’re a lot lower than in the US but I’m trying to understand how material the difference is. (I’m asking because I’m debating between an M7 and intl MBA program.)
Has anyone had experience/any luck negotiating their new level at MBB? Making the switch from Tier 2 to BCG and trying to keep my same level.
MBB manager vs FAANG product: pros and cons? I was excited about the perks in consulting but with all of them gone (and likely we’ll never go back to the glamorous lifestyle fully), product roles that I earlier said no to seem lucrative.
I’ve realized most people actually hate the big D, because lots of the people hired & top talent were near misses at MBB (final round etc.) and they resent the firm because of it. It’s a sad reality but it’s true.
What’re mbb staffing models like? I heard bain was moving to more regional. This true across the board? Mck and bcg global/national/regional?
Got an offer within Product Ops (Mt View) for L4, 145k base, 15% bonus, 185k equity (33/33/22/12), 15 sign on. One competing offer (that is lower) and only MBB promotion to Engagement manager in a few months as leverage point. Any fish guidance on how the offer fares up / how to proceed / what comp I should push for?
I always hear that MBB folks work from 8am - 9pm minimum, assuming it’s a *good* day. Is it realistic to maintain deep friendships in this kind of environment? Or are people always feeling too burnt out to meet up on the weekends?
Does it make sense strategically to lateral from T2 to MBB in the next few months (assuming late summer start) if I want to do 2022 on-cycle? Will funds care that I’d only have a few months of experience at MBB / would I be poorly perceived for wanting to leave MBB after a year?
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
Any suggestions on how to find referral for FAANG/MBB? Tried message recruiter on LinkedIn not much reply:(
Full Focus How many of you work with at least 90% focus 12 hours daily like you do for finals back in undergrad? The SMs and Partners I've worked with appear to be fully invested in work all day. Do you increase your stamina to give 100% the higher up you go to CxO levels or MBB/FAANG, and people do not progress in career because of slacking?
We have 3K members in this forum and less than 31 partners (at least based on posting titles). This is an abysmally low number. I am a MBB partner. AMA here (or feel free to ask privately if you are interested)
My lovely 🐟, really need to buy the Tumi Knox, can some MBB folks hook me up with their discount please? Pretty please?
What’s the best time of year to apply to MBB?
I have an old Coinbase account and thinking to install the Coinbase Pro. Can I get the referral benefit on Coinbase pro?

Had been considering trying to pivot to product post grad (MBA). Would that be a pay cut? Current TC 215-230 depending on bonus. Have a couple years in IT experience (CCNA, Sec +, some software dev work) but not sure what the experience cutoff for TPM or level would be either way. Anyone willing to provide some insight? Appreciate it!
