Outside of a FAANG + firms there’s no way industry would match post MBA compensation at consulting firms. No I’m not taking a 175 to 125k pay cut for joining some 3rd tier firm in Cincinnati

I feel like there must be some other room for exit outside of FAANG+ though 🤔We can’t all keep circulating around within consulting, top finance, top tech firms as there are more and more consultants joining from UG and MBA.

Share the details with us

SC OP - 60k isn't a small amount buddy. They probably have better WLB than most of us.

I’m paid 2x what my peers are in industry as a junior partner. It’s why I’m in consulting. Kind of fades as you get very senior but it’s a good run till then. Of course finance people often get paid 2x what we do or more so there’s always more money somewhere else

I had got bonus on April 2021 as i was retained and it was eligible till April 30th 2022 else i had to return the money in full. So, i left the company on May 2nd 2022. I have now received mail abt recovery. I have to pay them the one time bonus in full. I am now wondering how is this one time bonus calculated. Is it i should put down my papers only after 1 year?! The letter says "You will be eligible for this reward if you remain on the rolls of the organization as on April 30, 2022. "Capgemini

How best to answer “what are you looking for in your next role?” if you’re looking to go Big 4 to Big 4 without speaking negatively about your current job? Currently my biggest reasons for still looking B4 are because I’m not quite done with the structure and variety of experience but I am done with the Deloitte politics (no say in projects I am on, lack of connectivity). Obviously not going to say that but even “I’m looking for an opportunity to own my career” can look shady... thoughts?
