Hi all, I’m currently a tenured SM at ACN Strategy with an offer from BCG, for a Principal role. Should I negotiate for senior principal (I.e. the level just below equity partner), especially as BCG is very heavily looking for people?

Your odds of success to get to MDP likely take a hit if you only give yourself 2 years to figure out sponsorship. If you do negotiate for the partner title make sure you’ve got at least 3 years to figure out your path to MDP. Getting a 2nd year principal position with tenure might make sense as well. If you are doing this try and make sure you’ve got some early pull from MDPs coming in, will help smooth the path to election.

OP, I am with BCG at Principal level and expecting promotion to non-equity Partner in 5 months. I have an offer to move to ACN at L4. Mind sharing any insights into ACN culture, lateral senior hire integration, collaboration among MDs etc? If it helps, the offer is with Strat and Consulting.
