The amount of MBB sycophants on here is ridiculous.

No city preference - go to Seattle or Denver

City preference for big city or wants PE exposure - go to S&

You guys do realize the majority of folks at MBB complain about their jobs all the time, just like you.

From a generalist point of view, MBB has a stronger brand, but only maybe Bain does better CDD work than S& deals. so if Bain then go there, but if not bain and your focus is CDD then S&

She eventually wanting to be in the financial world and she doesn’t think PE practice is big at the small city from the MBB offer. Would that change your mind?

Nope. Plenty of people break into PE without PEG experience at Bain

How important would location be? big city vs small city

MBB - no question

MBB. City isn't a huge factor in my opinion. Most important element is if she just doesn't want to live in a smaller place, but career is likely fine either way

MBB for sure

Should I have to constanly advocate for myself in order to ensure I'm receiving market comp? About 3 years ago I decided to test the job market and realized I was being paid 20% less than I could get elsewhere. When I told my boss I was quitting they secured me a 30% raise to keep me at the firm. Since then my raises have been pretty meager and looking around it seems like I could get a dramatic raise by leaving. Is this just how things are? How do you ensure you're fairly comped without hopping
