Leaving GS for MBB
I'm currently a first-year analyst atand am becoming interested in switching career paths to consulting firm. The primary reason is that I don't find the work in IB interesting. There is not much thinking / problem solving involved as you are mainly just creating decks / valuations based on guidance from MDs / clients.
I'm primarily interested in the PE-groups of MBB as I would like to keep the option of going to PE later on and also would not like to travel 4-5 days a week. What type of work does a junior consultant at the MBB PE groups do?
Is there any independent thinking involved at the junior level or would you mainly be doing stuff like data digging for CDD reports, formatting slides and taking notes on calls?
