Spoke to recruiter to make the connection but yes I passed. Made manager at OW and currently on 2yr track to Principal promo (believe it’d be 3yrs as manager at Strategy& and presumably harder with having to rebuild network, etc)

Yes, with industry experience

S&2- I know the base salaries of both along with average years to reach each level. ACN base salary is the same or higher below 5 years of experience from undergrad. Above that S& has higher, but still similar base salary. We're talking 160 vs 170 for instance. I don't consider that a significant difference.

I’m sponsored from Deloitte at my mba program and I’m planning to rerecruit for MBB. Some of my classmates and others in the program really question why I would do this. I personally did a lot of research into comp and it seems like MBB definitely would exceed in just a few years after mba. I guess just looking for opinions, is this an irresponsible plan? Or do you guys think getting MBB is def worth giving up my sponsorship

I have two offers: 1. a strategy and ops role at a late stage startup, pre ipo (think databricks, Stripe) 2. a data science role at a bank. Comp is roughly the same at 270k TC. I’m much more interested in data science long term, but have FOMO about missing out on pre ipo shares. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
