Hi guys, I just got a verbal offer from McK a couple days ago. Negotiating is proving tough and I seem to be getting lowballed. What is the best way to negotiate considering I do not have any other offers on the table? Would love any input

Not much negotiation at MBB. It’s standardized.

Assuming you’re applying for a analyst/associate role… those are pretty standard across the board. Salary/nor sign on doesn’t really budge… unless you have a mba or something similar.

Also… consider the entire package. Their 401k + healthcare is literally insane…

I see! I seem to be getting offered lower than an undergrad right off college and I’ve already had a couple years of experience… any way to pitch that to get the base increased? (For the analyst position)

Happy to help! Feel free to DM if you're looking around for energy industry jobs, happy to share some of my experiences before, during and after BCG

Thanks! Also, did they ask you to voluntarily fill a comp/benefits history form which they could use in their overall pay+benefits?

Ohh gotcha, thanks. The recruiter mentioned a range for my position and I’m being offered the lower end of that range

OP, would you mind talking about your interview process? How was it?

I’d say it as super slow considering I was interviewing during the holiday season. They tend to give plenty of sessions to train and understand the case interviews and the PEI so adequate prep is provided but I recommend to practice a good amount of both case and PEI outside those sessions

Hello all, I have one doubt.

I'm currently working in start-up as java Full stack developer with experience 2 yr 1 month. I'm planning to switch in next 6 months. My current CTC is 8.5 lpa.

I want to work in MNC because of less work pressure and work Life balance. So they will give me 30-50 % hike?? Or they will say we will not give 12 lpa to 2.5 yr experience candidate.

I'm asking here because I don't want to apply and waste interview opportunity as they MNC have 6 months reapply rule.

Anyone know what the format of that interview is? What type of case to expect? Appreciate any guidance on how to prep. Thanks in advance.

I tried calling both HR and Recruiter, they're neither picking up my calls nor answering my emails. As far as I know they won't release my offer letter without that Online CIS form.
What should I do now?
