But should OP submit a cover letter...?

No cover letter. SA exists in US for laterals with 2-3 years work exp. Honestly though, don’t push for SA. Comp is a bit higher but so are expectations. Do you really want to be measured against dyed in the wool second year BCG Associates? Starting from scratch, the 20 month raise is to $100k+ and 24 month promo is to $150k. Just switching to BCG has huge NPV upside. Being 6-12 months ahead on tenure is small potatoes

Thanks! That was great BCG3!

Oh thanks, BCG1!

It’s a role which does exist in the US - don’t listen to BCG1

Does an associate in The US have to submit a cover letter if he wants to come in as a senior associate not in the US?

How many bcg’er does it take to...

What's the difference in pay gor BCG associates vs seniors? Making 105k as a senior right now at a big 4. Do I really need to come at a lower salary? Is it wise?
