Has anyone recently gone back into banking? I am thinking about going back because of the increase in comp and opportunity to work at a top BB. I was a boutique ib analyst for 2 yrs and currently a LMM PE firm 1st year associate.

Curious if anyone has made the shift to Mckinsey from tech? I have an offer to come into Expert (but with expectations that I hit Associate Partner quickly):

Salesforce - 200k base, 40k (opening) + 50k (year 1) + 75k (year 2) RSUs, 15% Bonus

Mckinsey - 215k base, 35k bonus, 75k signing bonus

I know the salaries at Mckinsey skyrocket when you hit Partner - but the work-life balance and benefits at Salesforce cannot be underestimated - and my RSUs keep getting larger and larger...thoughts?

General question: Is there any room in corporate America for real, actionable DE&I discussions and initiatives?

Is this just how it is?

Should I accept the new offer ? How do I tell the previous company about this? Also, I’ve already negotiated with the first company and the $115K base is the negotiated salary. I really do not prefer one company over the other. They’re both great! I’m very confused here. TIA🙏
