Considering leaving ACN Strat, but weary of leaving for another T2 (received offers at LEK and OW). Pros/Cons of this? Am I wrong for feeling like the bar should be set at MBB or stay put?

OW is arguably better than ACN Strat and LEK. I’d take that. However, if you can get in there you have a very solid shot at MBB. Just getting past the screening stage as a random applicant will be the challenge.

Have one BCG interview but would be grateful to explore Mck

Plot the pros and cons based on your long term life goals (career, health, relationship, WLB, etc.) and how will it impact that. Monetize those pros and cons and weigh which is best.

Will the new offers give you new responsibilities or experiences? That’s critical. If it’s more of the same, why bother? But if they will give you what you want, why turn it down?

You get paid more at L.E.K. (I had offer from OW after b-school and it was considerably lower then) Also depends on what industry you want to focus on - LEK is more focused on Healthcare, Industrials, and Retail/ Consumer and you’ll get a lot of exposure to PE.

This year I have been on strategy for 6 months and DD for 3, last year was the opposite.
