Finished my MBA and recieved a Senior Consultant offer from EY (3YOE). The pay (90 base+ 10 signing) is what I was making in manufacturing ops pre-MBA (with a guaranteed raise of 10% every year). Negotiating the pay right now but is it worth switching to consulting and taking this "pay cut"? Is the big4 grind worth?

I thought all consulting starts MBA on 165k base that’s weird

That’s pre mba level comp

I am confused. EY started you on pre MBA pay when you have an MBA?

Is this Canada?

There is a “Queen’s” in many other places and countries

Yeah im in Canada. EY1, reachout to me at timmyboy8686@gmail.com. Ill update your doc once I hear back from them.

Ha... so the number i went back to them with is higher than what a manager gets...

The Canadian market is very different than US. On average, there is at least 20-30 percent less in comp in absolute terms

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say

I work at an association where they have to report the top 10 highly paid employees. Saw that my peer w/ same years of experience is making $70k more than me. I wish I had never seen this information-it has put a horrible twist in my gut and a lot of resentment. Before seeing this info, I had asked my boss for a raise based on the success I've had over the past 8 years but have only gotten 4% bump per year. What can I reasonably ask/expect ? 20%? Do I mention the disparity if boss lowballs?
