I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.

Def MBB - better for the resume long term.

This is a tricky one. On one hand MBB has a better brand but on the other it you move into a senior role, you can start getting leadership experience which is a good differentiator for adcoms. Based on what I know it’s probably 60/40 MBB/Senior. Are you targeting any industries in particular

A1 that makes sense. I hear you with the 5-7 years of experience. I do have leadership experience from the military (5~ years plus the last two years in consulting which was not leadership focused in any way). I think the two years could get me into a role with leadership after if I leverage my background but then again it won’t be substantial “business” leadership experience for me to rely on

No brainer, take MBB Growth rate/brand even with a step back in level will not matter few years down the line Think of the exit ops you”ll have and chance for M7 (assuming you need to even go post MBB)

It’s easier to position yourself if u have consistency so assuming I already have a fees years of experience, leaving for a different company that isnt a clear upgrade for 2 years or less doesn’t make sense unless u will be gaining specific skills Everyone will ask u or wonder why u went from MBB to big 4 and if the answer is for a pay bump that doesn’t scream loyalty, which is what companies look for

Nobrainer, MBB. Not sure about the salary statement you made. MBB TC most likely will be similar or better even a level below than the big 4 titel (unless it‘s the strategy arm, and even there it‘s probably close)

MBB definitely

How many YOE do you have?
