I have 2 YOE non-consulting. What level would I come in at BCG? If Associate will it still take 2 years to get promoted to consultant?

Most likely entry level associate with a 2 year path to C


Agreed with ^. Want to add that as someone who just made a similar move, this is actually really nice.

It gives you time to learn the ropes with low expectations, keeps you eligible for B-school sponsorship, and comp is still quite good + accelerates rapidly.


exactly this

Associate for sure, 2 years to promo
