Same thing at MBB.

Generally, when people who came from other firms leave McK it’s because they are done with consulting.

This. You can’t really ask for more in terms of impact projects and compensation than MBB so if they leave it tends to be leaving consulting altogether.

I imagine you could possibly make a case if the original firm has certain areas of expertise that the MBB isn’t particularly strong in

I would never go back

I see the largest issue being comp. Therefore, most likely they arent leaving on their own terms.

Or potentially boomerang with much more money and title and lead their old team now?

I’ve seen it happen - not boomerang per se. But went from MBB to Big4 advisory, step up in title, accelerated track to partner. Now killing it there. May not be making as much as MBB partner, but he likely saw the light that MBB partnership may not have been achievable?
