When BCG states target bonus of 20-40%, what's the typical actual % for folks? Even distribution based on performance? A bunch of folks at 40% and a few people just get fired?

Got a job at BCG, Asian parents (living in Korea) not quite proud of me cuz 1) they don’t know what BCG is and 2) I’m not a doctor like my pop. How would you explain to them what you do?

People always talk about MBB as if they are interchangeable, but I feel like Bain seems materially different (in terms of size, types of work, firm strategy, etc) vs McKinsey and BCG. Thoughts?

Currently at Deloitte, just received an offer at BCG - catch is the role and comp are one level below where I’m currently at. However, the industry is more aligned to my goals. Worth making the jump?
