Don't network, build relationships. That way you aren't looking for something until you need to.... and when you do, the opportunities are a phone call away. The more you build relationships without a motive or agenda, the more selfless and natural the process becomes

Considering MBB offers here. Background = ~2YOE at tier 2 (think LEK/EYP/S&). Mck role is a Junior Associate position with the highest salary offer, BCG and Bain offering an experienced AC equivalent position (with a potentially faster promotion track to SAC etc). I've heard and seen that McK experienced hires often do worse on average than BCG/Bain esp at junior levels and wanted to get some thoughts on how I should make my decision. Thank you!
