I was recently approached by a recruiter from Alvarez & Marsal — can anyone who’s made the switch from BCG (or any MBB) share some thoughts? Would love to hear about culture, work, wlb, comp, etc.

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone on here complain about working at A&M or what they get paid.

Industry leading comp here. Culture varies by practice/group, but generally very professional/collegial and entrepreneurial. You won’t experience a million wellness webinars a week here but rather just have that time back to complete work and have for yourself which I love. Minimal bureaucracy and BS. When you’re on the bench, you can pick up BD work or truly chill out, which is great, although we are super busy right now.

Thank you!

Wait why would one make the switch? How much more can you get paid vs MBB in consulting?

You should use LinkedIn instead and ask the bcg people directly... there’s a bunch.
