$700 +/- depending on the city you’re in, the length of the engagement, and how many years of experience you have. Agencies will care more about vertical experience related to their need (eg. do you have CPG experience) and experience in things like research, comms planning, and experience strategy. No one gives a shit about your awards.

Folks that exited from Big 4 to MBB: do you regret it? Despite moving to a great firm like McK, having second thoughts about the decision due to the long hours and constant hustle to prove myself again. Don’t see myself staying in consulting forever, and have already been in consulting for 3.5 years. Any advice from folks that have done this? Can’t help but feel I should’ve kept looking for a FAANG exit rather than consulting.

I didn’t bring up pay then because it seemed too soon, but now im kicking myself for not at least pointing to a future conversation about it. With inflation, I need more than my previous number , when’s the best time to ask?
