Which firm? I’d say depends on if you see yourself with them long term + how fast progression is.

You can join Putnam as SAC and get promoted quickly (think less than 1 year). Just need to prove yourself early on. Comp is a lot better at C level, so it makes up for the short-term cut you might be taking.

Oh shoot forgot to put - it’s Putnam

Got it, I’m actually at Putnam. I’ve seen most post MBA EH come in as SAC at Putnam. We hire very few people directly at the consultant level because they typically take too long to ramp up/struggle to ramp up. Typical promotion timeline are 1 year but if comp is a big factor, then def look into other firms.

I thought you join as a Senior Consultant post MBA. That’s what I’m seeing on LinkedIn.

That’s what I expect as well. That post mba join as C / SC depending on how much experience prior mba. After 2 years as C I’m expecting SC now so rather taken aback with offer two levels down

Putnam tends to hire you at the level before what you’d be to let you get up to speed before doing that role. You’d be expected to progress quickly to next level if you do well

Hi all! Curious if anyone has insight into the first round interview with team manager at Google (post recruiter screen). It’s for a biz ops role and the recruiter said the call would be just behavioral. Wondering if anyone got case/problem solving questions in the first round or if those were for the final round. Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
