The equity is on the low side, and you should get a signing bonus. Are you currently at BCG?

It’s not a bad offer for sure. Honestly at this point whether you have more wiggle room will depend on company and sector within manufacturing and the strength of your app. Need more detail to really know if you could do better here.

Industry is food/pharma. Have 15 YOE split evenly between consulting and industry (as an engineer). Mostly in operations strategy related work (eg network transformations, ODDs, Mfg improvement, etc.)

It doesn’t hurt to ask if they have flexibility around the base, bonus, or equity but I think that’s a solid offer, especially in LCOL area. For reference I’m at BCG and your offer of $350 TC is in line for a Principal here with one year in role (5 years post MBA) going to the type of job you’re describing. The only thing I don’t like about it is the 3 year rolling vesting on the equity.
