@op if you went to a top 10 Bschool, just network with with classmates. There might be openings at McK and BCG as they build their downstream teams / practices. But reality is that an advisory Mgr with 4 years of experience is no better than someone who had some consulting exp and went to b-school

From manager to associate?!

I don't think anyone will think mgr -> associate is a good idea. How? Why? It doesn't add up. How much less will you make when you level down at mbb?

I've seen posts on here on how a manager from big 4 took an associate role. He said he understood the difference once he started.

Yeah if Chances r better. I know I'll work my way back up. Just want to get in to something more exciting

@Acn1: How can being a manager at big4 be less challenging than an associate at mbb? How?

Different problems / approach. Sure if you're smart you'll do well but how will they know

Stil. Vertically you have covered so much of work as a manager in certain tech/ process, etc. Now you get off that vertical and climb another one from the start? It's odd.

It's like just before you graduate from bschool you jump ship to get a law degree. Why?! I don't know. I would stay 10 feet away from this idea.

U left a manager position to SA???

Fuckin better be haha

I’m considering applying for an apartment in a townhouse that is also listed for sale (for $7 million lol). If the townhouse is sold after I move in, the new owner would have the option to terminate my lease. I would have 90 days to move out, but during that time I wouldn’t have to pay rent. I really like this apartment and it’s priced below market because of this risk. Has anyone taken this gamble before?
