At MBB, level for level, do implementation practitioners make the same as generalists?

EM and AP levels in McK are the same, but some junior roles like implementation coaches are paid meaningfully less than generalist Associates but more than BAs— these sorts of roles typically have industry experience and/or masters degrees but not MBA

like

ASC is the same as well - the implementation ASC (formerly senior implementation coach) role is equivalent to integrative ASC. Agree that below ASC is a bit of a mixed back

In North America we don’t have a separate implementation practice I believe - everybody is a generalist and does strategy or implementation type work on a case by case basis. So everybody gets paid the same (unless you’re in one of our specialty business units eg Platinion)

Hello Ladies, so I am seeing someone like we have met for a couple of days and now we are in different time zones. I am trying to talk and have communication but he only speak when he is free. Also, he always keeps on saying that he has a lot of work (MBB) which I get it, but should you proactively try and take out time to have communication especially when you are in different time zones.

If I wanted to pivot into a strategy firm and stay federal (or government in general), what firms would be ideal? I’m not basing it off prestige (MBB vs non MBB).

It seems kinda predatory and sneaky.
