BCG or McK? Which would you pick for a generalist Associate/Consultant role in the US? Why?

IMO can’t go wrong, differences are slim. If only sticking around 2 years, McK is the better stamp and BCG is the better pay/happiness. If staying to partner, I think McK pays better and no happiness anywhere.

For context, I work in data analytics in NYC, I have experience in modeling and machine learning (2+ YOE) and recently received an offer from one of the Big 4 accounting firms in their analytics arm. What are salaries for this role and YOE? I’ve done a bit of research online but can’t find anything reliable. The offer is less than half on my current salary, so I’m basically wondering if I was severely lowballed or that my expectations were too high.

Seeking advice on how to choose between a mid tier technical accounting advisory offer and Big 4 audit. Worked in audit at a local firm and wanted a bigger platform.
