There is a huge difference living & raising a family in india & us . money is the last consideration. if you absolutely like living in India . go for it . 50l is a decent salary anywhere in india unless you plan to biy homes. you have to be extremely fond of living in your home country to be able to overlook negatives. same applies for US

Quality of life is definitely better in India, especially if you have a close knit family that you can live in proximity to. Family support in raising kids is invaluable. But, you are not at that stage yet in your life. 170k in the US for 5 yrs of experience is a great salary. I’d continue, save, invest, get a GC etc., in the short term. You can always go back to India when you are ready for a change in lifestyle. The longer you are in the US, the more valuable you’ll look (at least on paper) to a potential employer in India.

50L in which city?

50l for a single or couple should be fine. MBB pays very well in India. Money should not be a concern.

With possibility of moving to US within orgn?

Not immediate. Might be difficult. MBB doesn’t do international transfer easily is what I heard

Also worth pointing that I am bored with the Implementation work we do and excited doing more strategic work at MBB

How many yoe?

5

I mean - do you want to live in India or the US? Work is secondary..

Pretty open to both. The fact that I am light years away from GC is another factor. Plus if I don’t like consulting … MBB might open more doors than Big4

like

Is 50L all in? Or your fixed? Biggest q is do you wanna live in India or US? If India, go for it and the mbb setup will get you pretty far, just know quality of life will be miserable (at work in mbb). If not, all your time in mbb India may not be that as international mobility to the US from India is highly competitive within mbb.

50L is almost hitting the ceiling in India. 170k USD has a BIIIG upside in US. M1s in FS make that. It's not really worth it unless you have no US long term ambitions

I do want to be in the US but want to optimise for learning and growth. Feel that MBB tag might get me that

If you passed the interview hurdles for MBB India you should be able to get an MBB USA offer. That’s if you want it. We are hiring like crazy and right now love experienced consultants who will be quick to pick up BCG ways.

You can DM me!

Are you at PwC or strategy& ? OP

Yeah let me DM you. Thank you so much.

I am looking forward to HR round for Macquarie Gurugram. All rounds went well except for numerical reasoning section in psychometric test. My yoe is exactly 8 years. My current CTC is 16.2 and expecting raise in current company in 2-3 months. Q1- What is the maximum I can demand in Macquarie in HR round? Initially, before interviews started, I mentioned 27LPA (negotiable). I have a past offer (not current) of 25.5 LPA. Q2 do they decline offering in case we get adamant abt high salary 27Lpa?

Can anyone concur the following, working on multimedia editor (Video) (4-6 YOE) requisition: 1. The average rate for freelancer - ₹700-1200 per hour 2. The average compensation package for a full time editor: 7-9 LPA Grateful for any inputs.

Opinions on Oliver Wyman and how they compare to MBB, B4, and other T2s? Have the potential to start the recruitment process there relatively easily but curious to hear thoughts of those actually in the industry. Thanks!
