Comp and benefits on par by role but longer time in role vs integrative (generalist)

McKinsey also has multiple roles called "Expert". There are Knowledge Experts, an entire track called Expert Consulting and Capabilities & Insights Expert, which vary significantly based on comp and career trajectory

How difficult is it to switch from expert track to generalist?

It is not accurate to call it very difficult. If you have a good thing going with a couple of integrative AP's/Partners/SP's it's not tough. I've seen a decent number of people move from C&I/Knowledge/Expert to integrative

Speaking for SEA. Comp is same - benefit is broadly similar. Trajectories might differ a bit (allowed longer path and lenient up/out)

Can confirm DAS leads to MDP - also most DAS MDPs work on some cases outside of digital (e.g. I have worked with a DAS MDP on a DD), but they do have a main focus on digital cases.

Other major major difference at BCG is there is no ability to be elected MD&P as expert. You top out as Director.

Bcg3, no

Is the product track (ex. Director of Product) considered specialist?

It reads as AP - director of product. I hadn’t heard of it either

Help with an offer at pre-IPO tech unicorn. Current: 112k base, 15k bonus, 3YOE Offer: 120k base, 16k bonus, no sign-on, 70k RSUs vesting 25% after 1 year and 7% each quarter after that. I’d like to ask for 135k plus 10k sign-on since I’m forfeiting 5k bonus and another 8-9k in unvested 401k. Is that reasonable? I’d be ok with 130k and 5k sign-on

Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.

I graduated June 2019, started full-time September 2019 and I feel like I have been so bad with tracking, saving, and overall being responsible with my money. My savings amount has been pretty stagnant for as long as I remember and I don't do any "investing" apart from contributing to my 401K and making HSA contributions. Can't help but feel like I'm behind everyone and don't know how to get myself out of this rut feeling. Any tips for how to turn myself around (i.e. creating budget, etc.)?

I went to a top MBA program and work at a bulge bracket bank so I’d hope that speaks to my creds post college.
