Associate then lateral after a year


How many YoE do you have?


That’s BS mate. You can end up in a thousand places that will pay you as well or close. Plus those mega funds are more and more standardized in comps plus less access to equity. You should re-think what you really want to do tbh

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
