Here for knowledge 😁

Only get an MBA if you really want to. You cannot depend on the salary increase. Also, I think you should get it only if you want to change your career in my opinion

Del2, based on things I've read on here you'd be brought on as a associate making 130-140k.

A2 - how does that make sense? How does a manager with 8 years consulting experience (+4 industry) and an MBA become an associate??

Just the way it works over at the MBB apparently....I'm only going off what I've read on here. Ur track might be expedited tho

Yeah... F that lol I will have worked to damn hard and eaten a lot of shit to become a manager to fall all the way back to Analyst and go through the hell all over again. Unless someone can convince me otherwise....

Haha associate at McK is equivalent to SC if that makes u feel better.

Can our MBB friends chime in on this? I'm curious to know, if I Royal Rumble my way upto Manager in a Big4 is it worth applying to an MBB? I'm okay with Associate there but only if I know there's a strong precedence of an expedited EM track for ppl with 5-6 years of Big4 advisory work.

Help with comp negotiation: Was offered a mid level role with fast growing tech co valued at ~$6b. They are offering $140k base and 30k options (number of shares not $) vesting over 4 years. Likely annual bonus of either $20-40k or 10k shares. What’s a reasonable counter? Current offer base would be a pay cut for me, but I believe in the co.

Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?
