For those who transferred cities while keeping (roughly) the same salary, how did it affect the size of your first post-move bonus if at all? I.e. does transferring midway through the performance year work against you?

This can be tricky and depends on when you transfer. For example, if you transfer shortly before or after your firms fiscal YE (prior to bonus payout) you would be in the bonus pool of your old office. Depending on timing they could technically screw you by giving you a lesser bonus than your ex peers because you are no longer in that office why would they care to keep you happy. If you transfer outside of that window you would normally just be assigned to the bonus pool of the office you joined. This was explained to me by a Partner on how it works at D at least.

Doesn’t usually affect bonus, your comp will just stay flat until you equalize with peers

Moved from a high cost of living city to a low one. Kept salary. No compensation increase that year due to being in the higher end of the bracket for rank and salary there.

Looking for thoughts on if you would pursue an MBA given my age, YOE, current pay/track and post-MBA goals. 27M, 3 YOE all in consulting.

I don’t want to pivot into IB or PE, probably don’t want to work the hours required for MBB, but enjoy consulting and could see myself exiting to a tech company down the road.

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?
