Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck? I got an Ivy League exec mba in 2020 as well, which hasn’t yet been reflected in my big 4 comp (we mostly didn’t do raises because of covid last year). Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?

Usually mckinsey bring other positions as one level below (an outside EM would join as an associate, etc.). If they're offering an EM position, it would be equivalent of a new EM, not an experienced one. McK fish can help me here, but I'm fairly certain that base should be around 200k-230k, and TC might be close to 250k

Usually they’ll bring you in at a specific level and you’ll get whatever base salary corresponds to that level. Not really room to negotiate the base; but you can try to push to come in at a higher tenure (eg AP vs EM)

What’s a manager on a partner track?

EM with the expectation that you’ll rise to associate partner and then partner. We have the same concept at my company. Up or out track to partner. Maybe all EM roles follow this at mck idk, that’s just what the recruiter told me. At my firm it’d be relevant as not all manager level roles are on an up or out track to partner.

I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog. People in power: take note.

I can’t handle the pressures/stress of work that I felt I could even this time last year, & it is affecting my performance because I truly don’t care to fix things anymore. Not sure if this will pass or I need a full change…
