Does the new gig have a clear career progression?

like

D1, the career progression would be different in the sense that the people I'd be reporting up to would either need to be promoted or leave for me to climb into their role. I'm not used to this model

If so, take it!

I think many people put way too much stock into how "cool" strategy work is. They view MBB as prestigious (which it is) and therefore the work must be better (not necessarily). It's more long nights and hectic travel. The exit opps are probably better, but then you need to figure out what your goal long term is.

like

Additional concern is I've heard it's much more difficult to reach higher salary brackets in industry. Current situation: SC1: 110k, received rating of 2. Somewhat exhausted of the travel but truly feel I work for one of the best companies out there (yes I drank the koolaid). I've also always dreamt of MBB post MBA so I'd be giving up on MBA -> MBB potentially, as I'd likely keep this role for 4-5 years.

If you take it you may still have a chance of going into MBB with expertise in whatever area you're going into down the line. Sounds like you need to think about why you actually want an MBA and therefore your longer term goals. By the time you graduate, MBA starting salary will probably be around $165-185 if it keeps increasing at the rate that it has been these past few years

like

If you feel like you'd really learn there - take it, you can probably come to MBB later as an experienced hire without MBA and have much more valuable experience compared to freshly minted MBAs, with no specific platform

like

Tough choice you have in your mind, I feel like consulting is getting more specialized, though, and a lot of people with actual strong technical skills will be needed to streamline many solutions at the clients, while clients are getting smarter themselves and will start demanding more tailored solutions rather than the glamorous strategies

like

Salesforce is hot hot hot . Tech companies as unglamorous as they may seem have greater growth opportunities and 'strategy' in itself is not an area, you need to have specialized skills per industry or start off as an analyst.

like

This may be true EY1, however I also feel that by taking this role, I'd need to commit to at least a few years at the tech firm to actually achieve what I'm being hired for, i.e. helping to grow out a new niche practice area. That would put me north of 30 years old, and salary wise I might be closer to 150k by then. I'm worried about losing the mindset or motivation to give that up to return to school.

Take it. Excellent industry experience. Don't disregard employee stock options. You'll be a better consultant coming back in with industry experience at perhaps a higher level. Just keep your eye on the ball to get your MBA.

EY1, thank you and appreciate your advice. Will have the conversation with family and decide

ATK1, yes it's possible however I don't see this experience aligning well with MBB strategy practice. Door will remain open to BCG digital ventures or McKinsey's analytics practice. Problem is - I'm good at what I do, even great, but I've always been interested in strategy (perhaps This is a scenario of grass is greener on the other side)...so the way I view it is I keep going deeper into something I'm good at, something that offers decent pay and job security, but not necessarily the glamour-esque strategy engagements I've always dreamed of
