They report that it’s higher than the MBA program, but it’s a very self selected group that apply, so don’t read too much into it

I think it is slightly more competitive, much like Kellogg’s MMM program. Their yield rate is also very high.

Amazon FLDP vs Gartner Consulting (post-MBA level). I am worried taking Amazon will close the door for consulting in the future. Amazon comp - 130k base + 80k sign-on bonus (~45k first year, ~35k second year) + 100k RSU (4 year vest). Gartner - 125k base + 15K EOY Bonus + 10k sign-on bonus. Do I pass on my hopes for consulting and chase the money?

Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA. Joined my current firm again as principal and often seems I can operate at partner level and definitely deliver and sell at one (10-15M year). Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.
