Is Seattle a good city with enough management consulting opportunities? For companies like MBB, LEK, Kearney and Accenture?
Hi Y'all, sorry to jump in here uninvited as I'm not a part of MBB. I wanted to get your opinion on a firm to get a perspective on if it's a good opportunity or not. Have any of you heard of Stax?
Does MBB ever let people specialize in Life Sciences right off the bat at the post-MBA Consultant level or do you always have to start out as a generalist?
Looking for experienced case partners for the next few weeks. 1-2 YOE here and probably done 100+ cases, applying to MBB.
Question for MBB folks or those familiar: I did NOT go to a target school for undergrad but graduated top of my class and got promoted early twice to get to Manager in 4 years at PwC. Don’t like the idea of spending crazy amounts on an MBA to make the transition to MBB. Is getting hired there a realistic possibility without an MBA? I have solid product management experience in the FS space
A McK recruiter reached out for a posting that I submitted to, but I’m not looking to relocate. What’s the working situation like here or MBB as a whole? Are you traveling or forced to relocate if you get an offer? TIA!
~140k tc for just under 2 YOE at MBB. Take it and try industry for a while If I do not like consulting life?
What kind of salary can be expected in consulting in Shanghai? E.g. in MBB or Big4. What kind of life does it buy you?
What do the base and bonus structure and figures look like for the post MBA level at MBB? At Y1, Y2, Y3, and so on through the EM/PL levels.
Is the WLB / hours at MM PE (NYC) comparable to MBB? Current associate debating the move
Have you noticed different MBB Business Units treating candidates poorly? I.e. BCGs Gamma and Platinum will ghost candidates for weeks, while their Core BCG counterparts are handheld through process?
What’s a good way to stop being jealous? A friend of mine has been extremely lucky when it comes to job. Got their job out of undergrad last minute when someone dropped out. Their manager moved to MBB and needed people so pulled them over. Now they work on an internal team (40 hour weeks or less) making 200+ while I’m grinding away making 120. Just irritates me when they talk how things aren’t expensive or just have disposable income
Anyone care to share opinions or experiences about internal roles at mbb? Work is interesting, but wouldn’t be client facing anymore
Apple PM 170k base, 160k stocks over 4 years. Trying to get a sense for whether this offer is in line with what folks are seeing. I have 4 years of post mba experience, 2 as a PM and 2 at MBB (recent) @Apple
Big4 tech consulting -> FAANG sales strategy -> tier2(S&, Atk, Lek, etc./MBB.
1 year at Big4, 1 year at tech company, non-target UG. Likelihood of actually accomplishing this? Thank you☺️

Recommendations for consultants at MBAMission?
So I got a 730 GMAT on my first try. On the one hand I feel I can do better as I was doing consistently better in practice tests, but on the hand other hand I feel that I should accept it and focus my energies elsewhere. Thoughts?
How many hours of studying does it take in your experience to improve your GMAT score by 10 points at different levels - e.g., 650 to 660 vs. 700 to 710 vs. 750 to 760?

will jumping jobs (currently less than one year at a company) look poor on an mba application? i don’t feel challenged where i am currently and am hesitant in starting the interview process based on how it may look to admissions. I have ~5 years of exp overall and have stayed at my prior two firms for around 2.5 years each.
Dead sure that I'll apply to a few M7s/T10s in R2 but don't have my GMAT sorted yet. Should I already reach out to my recommenders? I should have a couple, hopefully, solid ones onboard but confused about when to engage them.
If I’m already making ~$170k and want to generally stay in the same industry is MBA worth it?
