Why leave then? Just walk away.

Not planning on it short of an increase, was just curious if other people had similar experiences.

Where’s your MBA from?

Then I don’t see why the offer is low, walk away. Unless they feel the prior experience isn’t related.

You should be getting at least the same as new MBA grads even if they don’t think your post MBA experience is relevant. Go back to them and present the facts (esp. that their offer is 20% lower than new MBA hire) and explain based on those facts what you’re willing to take. You may find out that your facts are wrong, that they were low balling you, or that they’re not that interested

But why would you take a job for less money...?

I wouldn’t - was just surprised at the huge variance in comp discussed at the beginning of the interview process and the actual offer.
