BCG 🐠 what age does someone typically make partner at your firm? I’m watching the video about the recruiting process and the partners seem really young (also nice, they seem nice)

So if I join at 28 as an SA I’m already very late. Is that something that would disqualify me from the (very theoretical at this point) partner track or not?

Many MBA hires are older. Definitely doesn’t disqualify you. You asked for observations. Observations != requirements

Average is 10 years post u/g + any time for bschool or non-tenure secondments (and almost everyone needs a break for those type of things) So 32-35 (but theoretically 28-29 for a dedicated rockstar).

Average is 7-8 years post MBA or advanced degree. Depending on grad age, that’s more like 34-40

You’re not that old. If I’m understanding your timing correctly you’d probably be up for Partner late 30s or early 40s which is very typical.

BCG is not like big 4 where there are mandatory retirement ages and you have to be a Partner for x amount of time to vest in a pension.

Plenty of people join at a slightly older age, especially advanced degree holders who tend to be a bit older than MBAs, some lateral hires, or folks who got their MBA in their 30s. I wouldn’t get super hung up about age. A lot of times you can’t tell how old someone is by looking at them, especially in 30s and 40s.

Thank you for the thoughtful reply! Doing Round 1 of interviews tomorrow

Looking for a new credit card and deciding between the Amex gold or chase sapphire preferred. Any preferences? For reference I’m in my mid 20s and live in nyc. I’m not looking to pay a huge annual fee and I have a corporate Amex green card which takes $100 off annually for Amex gold. Most of my spending goes to rent, dining, groceries, seamless, public transportation, Uber/lyft, and online shopping. I have status with delta as well but work completely remote so not traveling as much.
