Currently at MBB, got an offer from KPMG with a title bump and 70% more salary. Worth it? I’m pre-mba

Depends on what leve you are.
The pay bump from AC/BA to Consultant/Associate is ~70%.
So if you are at these positions, I’d say it is worth staying because the bump will come anyway with better growth perspectives for the future.

OP is pre MBA at MBB, so must be AC/BA. To your point, OP should stay as the promotion is imminent

Try to get a higher offer from your current firm first. Worth a shot to keep you on a trajectory with perceived better outcomes.

Current firm is MBB. Not sure that works.

70% salary bump lmao, the answer is yes

“Senior consultant” is not a title at any MBB.

OW - Associate is a post MBA role at McK. Maybe BA. Associate is a pre-MBA role at BCG and Bain’s Associate Consultant

If you want to maximize short term income, yes. If you want a higher earning ceiling, stay at MBB.

like

Short term income maximisation means OP is getting an immediate 70% bump. That said, the bump at MBB to around the same rate would be 1 year later, likely with higher/faster trajectory.

You’ve already got the MBB badge on your resume. It’s served it’s purpose. Take the money

Do not join KPMG. The brand name is not worth the resume hit before MBA.

Tell us more. 70% of what TC? Are you planning to go to grad school in the next 1-2 years? Will your MBB pay for it?

It depends. If you’re not thinking grad school or new job, then go for it. But the first thing an MBA admissions panel or recruiter will think is that you were counseled out at MBB

Bingo. Forget any MBA admissions committee. Basically any headhunter in the next few years (only exception is that OP has a long run at KPMG and makes partner)

No. Definitely not.

Umm absolutely. We are here for the money 😉

What’s the estimated income over the next 5 years?

A resounding yes! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Depends on what your tc is now.

Do you want MBA? Is KPMG sponsoring?

What group would you be going into?

Yes
