First year post MBA position at a T2 (Strategy&, LEK etc.,) got an offer with MBB to start at same level but essentially losing out on the past year of tenure. I don’t have intentions to make Partner but enjoy the work and may continue for at least a few more years. Is the switch worth it? Also I came from industry and my current network is mostly industry folks so curious how much of a culture adjustment it may be.
