After several consulting, advisory deal and industry (strategic assistant to the management-position) interviews, I see a very frustrating pattern: I get feedbacks like "not enough drive" (Olivery Wyman, Bain) or "obviously no high flyer" (PwC). I really struggle to decode it, as I also get the feedback "nice guy, very good fit to culture, smart etc." I even get told I should reapply asap as they really like me.
Could someone decode the problem for me? When I asked for more detailed feedback these associates actually don't know how to explain it as it was always mentioned by the partners. They even tell me to ignore it and be myself. However, due to this pattern I start questioning myself if the business world is the right fit for me being maybe too much of a "nice guy" i.e. no "Investment Banking Shark" who just wants to make tons of money - without empathy for coworkers.
Would be extemely grateful for the answer.

It depends on the office, drop them a mail -maybe it´s even stated in the web-.
However, if in this specific office they only recruit in certain periods, for sure there will be other offices with rolling recruiting period.
Hope it helps!

Every office has his own policy and you can directly ask for it during the interview, but for sure you can join a Top MBA also coming from Tier 2 firms. OW, for example, offers an MBA scolarship that is even better than some offered by MBB.
Universities want to keep some "diversity" also in terms of firms represented, you don't have to worry about it.
Hope it helps,
