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.

Leave and don’t look back. Long term this won’t even be a blip on your resume.

As a former D alumni at the SM level, I would highly encourage you to leave and don't look back. You'll thank me in 5 years when you are turning down McK like I did last week :)

Hi All, I need some career guidance. 7+ YOE - 3 in tech support role (after BE) and 4+ in BA & PM role (after MBA). Worked on RPA and process improvement projects for 2 yrs. Currently working on internal tool implementation projects - PMO, UAT, change strategy, etc. I want to switch to a product company in a PM/TPM role, and I am planning to learn something new which has a great future scope, pays well, and aligns with my profile. Any recommendation would really help me take a right call.

I just said I know how to be strategic when it comes to my deliverance with whom I’m speaking to. I felt his question was misogynistic and quite condescending truly.

Is there a way to bypass the promotion policy of not being able to apply for jobs in 2 or more levels above your current level? Especially, if one joined the company at lowest level with over 8 years experience? Reason was, I took a career break for 6 years and to maximise my chance of getting back into the industry, I applied for a role I was almost guaranteed to get. I had hoped it would be easy to rise in ACN but was met with "you can't be promoted 2 levels above", cont'd in comments

Is it just me or are there entirely too many people in Business Services, specifically TC’s, who are just folks from client service that don’t want to deal with hours and travel anymore but have no formal training in the Business Services function they transition to? It seems to me very few TC’s are professionals in HR with any background, training or certifications in HR.
