Working a job right now for about $150-160K TC, but it’s accounting software sales and has heavy ambiguity in terms of upward mobility (and rarely raises)

Is it crazy to want to go to industry or back to PA for career progression? I’m assuming it would be a major pay cut with 3.5 YOE - maybe scrape $100K TC if I’m lucky?

I have a few questions for people in consulting roles (both external/internal).

My partner is in corporate banking, but he wants to switch to a consulting/strategy-based role. I noticed people with those jobs typically have an MBA, and also majority of the job ads in similar roles has MBA as either a requirement or preferred qualification. So:

1) does MBA actually improve someone's chance in getting those roles?
2) are there any good Canadian MBA programs you'd recommend?

Thank you all!

Hi Friends,
Please advice ,
After a technical and PDM round at IBM , I got mail to upload document for background verification.
Manager in PDM round told he can offer max 20.5.
8 yrs, Azure , databricks ,
Current ctc - 16, Subject to revision by 20% from July 1 but manager told they will not consider future hike .
If I get such low ball offer and put down paper I will not get hike .
Also I feel undervalued with such offer as people having half experience are getting more than that.
