For those who have been forced out of MBB, I’m just curious — did you end up having to take a pay cut when exiting, or did you get something that paid even more?

I doubled my pay on exit — got a Big 4 partner offer while I was being forced out. Timing was mostly luck, but I’ll take it.

Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm. Wondering what I can do to prepare myself, are there any courses, books that would help me gain some skills. I have mostly done PMO, tech implementations kind of work so far. Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.
