I am currently a senior consultant at Accenture. Should I accept a position at MBB for an analyst position? Pay is very similar but it would be a downgrade in the role, but however it is MBB.

I would take the MBB

SC as in post MBA? If so, “analyst” seems out of place.

How do you not know your own firm titles being there for 2 years

I switched from Sr Con at a big 4 to starting level in MBB - as you say, similar pay for a lower level role initially but in turn the longer term pay trajectory is much better, plus more exit opps...

I think it depends on your geography. Where I’m located at the moment, you need a postgraduate education to get either an entry role in the B4 or MBB (instead of working for a couple of years, leaving for the postgrad and then returning).

We don’t have a Senior Consultant title

like

Yes you do. MBA hires are called Senior Consultants, although they’re essentially just C3s.

I’d take it

Yeah. You are going to be so much better than your peers because you have actual work experience and will eventually be able to grow into more senior roles + long term comp and exits will be wayyyyy better

Hell no
