"Cluttering up" Linkedin profile?Before I started at MBB I was a college professor, and many (upwards of a hundred) of the undergrads I taught two years ago are now wanting to add me to their LinkedIn profiles. Problem is, none of them have jobs yet. If I accept all of them, they'll outnumber my actual connections (to people in... 2 years 4 months

MBB (specifically McKinsey and Bain) - direct...[quote="IBTeaching"]For the very few who are actually trying to stay 4 years and get promoted to a manager level, I personally have not seen that done without the MBA.[/quote] There are two guys in my class who have gone straight through, and are now at EM/PL level without an MBA. 1 week 5 days
2015 McKinsey insight and BCG bridge2BCG status...No one gets a FT offer out of Insight or Bridge. You go through the FT recruiting process just like everyone else and the yield is about the same as it is for the applicant pool who doesn't do the program. 3 weeks 11 hours

Probation period normal for management consulting?What? No. 4 weeks 1 day
Training materials from Bain or other MBB?Yeah, that's pretty much a list of things that can't be shared.

Staying at client sites during weekends?+1 to the above, every firm I've ever heard of has some sort of alt-travel policy. Note, however, that this assumes you are not required to be in the office for some reason on Friday. Also, depending on the culture of your specific team, you may want to go easy on taking advantage of this kind of... 1 month 3 weeks
Ask Me Anything: First-Year at MBB[quote=WilliamBrasky]"Project" works just fine, or even "engagement".[/quote] So "case" is jargon-y but "engagement" is not? 2 months 3 weeks
Ask Me Anything: First-Year at MBB[quote=companion]Do consultants add any real value to a business? I feel like it's a scam/useless. [/quote] If management consultants didn't add value to a business, people would stop paying them. It's that simple. We can and do add a lot of value (that's certainly not to say that we always do). 2 months 3 weeks
