Currently at BCG, received offer from another MBB offering additional 12 months tenure credit for recognizing my prior-MBB experience. Jump?

I agree with B4. Unless you are super unhappy, it’s not worth it. MBB is all the same (more or less). And jumping ship for a tenure credit isn’t worth the relationship / network rebuilding

Depends which MBB 🥳

Tell us more pls

As always, more information required.

If you don’t like BCG then yes? Not sure what decision criteria you are looking to apply.

What’s important to you? How much do you like/dislike BCG? Is consulting ideally long term gig for you?

Overall career progression within MBB and exit opportunities are important. For context I am in APAC and at Senior Associate / Senior BA level with an offer for a higher one. YOE 5+2(BCG)

If you’re trying to make it long-term (partner), I think the relationships within BCG are not worth the jump elsewhere. That might be a controversial opinion, but the reality is that it’s not as easy to build strong relationships at a new firm - especially if you’re jumping into a step-up role before the manager promo point (as SBA is before EM) and need people to support you. That said, if you are otherwise unhappy at BCG and don’t have strong sponsors within the firm, then I would consider switching. I would guess that the offer is for McK.

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them.

What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?
