I was extremely close. I wanted a job but they didn’t want to give me one. In the end we agreed to meet in the middle and I do not work at MBB

I had 2.5 YOE and so I was only able to negotiate starting date and relocation assistance because I was coming in as SBA / SA / SAC

Just signed my offer letter yesterday and was able to negotiate on start date and signing bonus. I considered pushing for PL level or “tenure credit” but decided against it after seeing input here from BCG 🐠. Didn’t try for salary (I don’t think they’ll budge) or anything else

I didn’t even try. I only had 12 years of experience and was hired at project leader level.

What’s the salary like?

Same than generalists

Hi BCG1: what was the process like when you started out? Were you offered PL from get go or did you have to shadow an experienced PL on your initial case before you got your first case as solo PL? I’m looking to make a similar transition, so your thoughts will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Feel free!
