#2 if you want to do life insurance stuff for the rest of your life. #1 if you don’t…assuming your coming in as generalist consultant and not a life insurance expert (if that even exists)

How do the offers compare in terms of TC?

Very similar at gross level. The second one is based in Asia, so better after tax comp.

Yeah - and if you can stick out till Project Leader at BCG that will get you ahead comp wise

How easy will it be to return to the boutique or bank at EM/SEM levels after a year or 2 at BCG? Have you thought about WLB too? The pay may be similar but the bank probably has much better WLB, so you could make much more on a per-hour basis.
