Got offered 190 base for M level role at B4. They claim they can’t go higher. I’m inclined to trust them based on what I see here. Should I?

Hold on there...190K is certainly a solid offer but def weigh what you are giving up. For example, at this point in the year you are probably not getting a raise or bonus from the new firm. Depending on your rating this year, that likely wipes out your sign on bonus and could put a significant dent in that raise percent. 170K now means an 8% raise would put you at 185K which is prettt realistic. Plus youd likely lose a year in progression from adapting to a new firm, re establishing your network, etc. 20% is a very realistic expectation to switch. Imo 15% is the absolute floor.

I’d say take it, but find out if they think you will be considered for a promotion next year. It’s at the top end of M salary and you are probably making as much as some SM2. If they don’t promote you to SM next year, not sure how much of a raise they will be able to give you since you are more or less at the ceiling for M

Definitely at the higher end of a M. Are you coming from another b4? Do discuss potential raises as you are already at the high end of the M band.

No. Differences can easily be 10-15% on base although ranges are huge. I believe there’s even greater difference when it comes to bonus. At M Deloitte gives 0-30%.

In any case, thanks for all the info. Looks like the offer is super solid! Seems like my +20% target was unrealistic and that the offer is really good for a manager-level position

Fair points. Seems hard to get 195-200 as a manager though. That said, I’m definitely not expecting an 8% raise... leaning toward taking the offer

I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case.

The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?
