Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

As much as some MBB consultants would love to argue otherwise, there is no real difference in personality between a McK/Bain/BCG consultant and an ATK/Deloitte/Roland Berger/...

Truth is, nearly all of us apply to both top-tier and second-tier companies. You might argue that on average an MBB consultant may be better than the others, but that's a very rough approximation and I might even disagree. But when it comes to personality, we are all the same kind of type-A jerks :)
