Expect a massive pay cut. The consulting salaries for graduating MBAs are £85,000.

It is high for London. My MBA classmates that stayed in the UK got max £85,000 which was MBB and big tech like Amazon. Large company salaries are around £60,000 - £70,000, and startups are around £30,000 - £45,000. So all are a massive pay cut when you are making $130,000 in a MCOL US city, and especially so when you add in a 40% tax rate over £50,000.

I recently moved to the US for work. Single; went out with a guy from a dating app; he cracked jokes & told what sounded like cautionary story about his friend who married a foreigner and got dumped once she got a green card. I’m confused because I’m from a “wealthy” European country, based on public information I make more than 2x his salary… is it the case that Americans assume everyone dreams about becoming American, regardless of their circumstances? And should i be offended...?

Have an offer from McKinsey. However, based on the start date I was given, I will have to forgo a substantial bonus at my current firm. Any chance that McKinsey will boost my signing bonus to account for this loss? Will they just ask me to push my start date? Or will they say take it or leave it? Offer is for BA level if that matters.

A partner said on a client call that we really miss an associate I’m filling in for and that the team should be up to speed when she gets back. I can’t help feeling a bit slighted by that. I get that she’s much more senior (I’m a 1st year who started a couple of months ago) but I don’t think I’ve done a bad job at all. My first brief was spot on arguments wise and didn’t have much redlines. Am I reading too much into it? Should I check in with him to ask if he’s unhappy with my work?
