Currently at Deloitte with 1 year exp, just received an offer to join mbb. I want to exit consulting to work in media and entertainment - Disney, Sony music, umg, etc. Does mbb exit better into this area or will I be able to exit there with Deloitte? Don’t really want to reset in consulting but not sure what the path looks like…. For reference I am currently working in a lot of media project at Deloitte with like Disney, fox, etc….

100% McKinsey. Barely even counts as resetting. 2 years as A, 2 years as C, and 3 years as SC at Deloitte to make make M. That’s 7 years. Sure, 6 years for you. Now at McKinsey you’d go from BA to EM in 3 years (4 at the BBs) . You’re actually accelerating your career. Of course, up or out is more prominent at MBB.

Not 100% true for Bain. Career progression there tends to be slower than McK or BCG

What does the salary difference look like between D and MBB?

It’s not just the salary difference as much as speed of progression. At McKinsey, you can go from Analyst to Partner in almost the time it takes to go from SM to Partner at Deloitte.

I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
