I'm from a non-English speaking country (Germany) and have worked in a boutique consulting firm in NYC for the past two years (note: I do not require visa sponsorship). My English is good, but you can tell I'm not a native speaker (e.g., I have a slight to medium accent, I sometimes make unusual word choices). To restate my question: How common are foreign hires in the U.S. MBB offices (specifically NYC)? Are foreign applicants welcome? Or would that be something that stands out as a negative (as in being another challenge to overcome) during the interview process? Thank you!
