So who is the firm? You said top 4 so we rule out MBB. Very curious who you perceive to be #4.

MBBD=top 4 - so he means Bain ofc

Just based it off of Forbes/Vault - Deloitte. I find rankings somewhat silly but regardless, it’s perceived as a ‘better’ firm than where I currently work.

What level are you interviewing for? Shoot for the moon! Before negotiations, you have to research what other people are making in that role and in that company. During negotiations, focus on your skills and assets and what you can bring to the team and why they should pay you more. Deloitte has lots of money, they can pay you more 😅. Good luck!!

They have been vague if it would be for C or SC...

For MBB, there is not really a negotiation. All incoming associates are paid the same salary which is very visibly published every year. I think the latest was ~165k for MBA associates. There are a few exceptions for direct to AP+ hires of course.

Which country and location ? Which mba ?

Should have been obvious. D is the clear #4.

it’s a joke. kearney, ow, lek, and several boutiques (clearview, av, etc) are considered better (more prestigious, selective, higher pay) than deloitte, putting deloitte squarely in the #7-10 range if you assume that they are the best of the big 4 (perception of which i think is really based on pay, although it’s not really clear that deloitte pays the best).

Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
