How long would it take for MBBers (McK and BCG, since that's who I've passed a couple rounds with) to hit 250k starting from post MBA level? Got an offer from FAANG with that TC and trying to compare the paths. I applied for data science tracks (specialist at McK, Gamma at BCG) at both. Generalists can give input cause the stuff I applied for has the same progression and comp allegedly.

If any helpful, you’ll be a 2nd class citizen at McK as well as a data Scientists. A lot of folks really enjoy the type of work they do, which is really different from what they could do at a tech company

This is really changing. I joined 4 years ago and was floored by the subtle and not so subtle tiers. Nowadays, I’m seeing even the most old school integrative partners and senior partners much more directly embrace expert colleagues. Heck, I just saw two analytics colleagues I’ve worked with get elected.

Go to Faang. You'll have a happier life and career growth + stock appreciation which is not there at MBB.

Comp yes. Career growth No.

funny

2 years(after first promotion) although you get very close in the second year if you are a top performer

Pay in Gamma is same or higher than generalist for same level but average promo timeline is slower.

Is your FAANG TC all cash or does it have stock with a vesting schedule? MBB you’ll get healthy comp increases especially once you’re in years 3+ past MBA level - and it’s all cash. Plus the retirement contribution.

95% cash in first two years, shifting to 30% stock in latter two

MBB aren’t tech..so

Top box 2nd year Consultant at BCG - 185K base - 223 to 253K TC

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city?

Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
