I know people don’t go into social impact for the pay but would the Gates Foundation be a significant pay cut (for pre-MBA roles)?

Yes. The pay gap only gets wider as you move up though.

Go look at Glassdoor. They appear to pay quite well.

OP is comparing consulting vs. gates foundation, not gates foundation vs. other nonprofits, so certainly not a given

I am seriously just trying to get clarity and not do any bashing. Why do all my MBA friends (every single last one, sample size-8) who went to Deloitte hate it there?

So since direct promote Cs in legacy Parthenon are now being paid 75% of what they’ve been promised for three years (and 75% of what their post-MBA counterparts, who take 6+ months to become effective in the job, will be making), is it fair to assume they’ll only be expected to work 3 of every 4 weeks? Especially since this is a permanent change, not a temporary recession change?

For people who are familiar with work culture in Tokyo, how much embezzlement takes place? I see a good number of Japanese people on Instagram buying Bentleys and such. I'm confused how they can do so while living in a high COL with, on average, lower salaries than in the US. With the scandal at Nissan and how many executives were found to be stealing money from the company, I wonder if this is some unspoken secret about doing business in Tokyo? Unless their comp curve is extremely steep.
