Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Is there some comprehensive doc that maps MBB consulting levels to typical FAANG exits, types of groups etc? Or is this tribal knowledge?
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
2 part question guys - Big4 v. MBB: 1) what is the honest difference in the type of “management consulting” done by each; and 2) when is management consulting actually just expert consulting?
What is a competitive base to ask for when switching firms for an M2 position (MBA from top 10) in management consulting?
I refuse to get my CISSP. I don't believe it's a valid certification to show competency in cyber security.

Folks who’ve done their MS here (not MBA) - With 2-3 yrs of experience do you think a 1 page CV works or does one elaborate into 2 pages atleast. Also looking for perspective from folks who handle tech recruiting.
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?

I know opportunities are far and few between right now, but looking for either energy or supply chain consulting role. Open to travel once resumed. If anyone is aware of a need, I'd appreciate the help!
As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
I'm looking for an MBA program that is less party focused and more academic. Any suggestions?
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
Can anyone offer color on salery levels moving from a global advertising agency to the the advertising/digital practice of a Big 4 or MBB consultantcy? Is it similer to the strategy consultant pay or is it it's own level?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
I’ve only worked on tech transformations for clients in one specific industry throughout my whole career. All projects have been almost the same. Is this a disadvantage for mba applications, or is it a pro since I show deep expertise in a certain area? I only really stayed on these types of projects because that’s where my network took me.
Just found out I’m pregnant (only 5 weeks so still a bit to go before I tell anyone really). After I’m farther along and everything is confirmed with doctors, when do I start telling people at work? Due in mid May.
