I would consider if I had to move, cost of living, work life balance, travel schedule, and career trajectory. Right now Deloitte isn’t paying jaw-dropping salaries but my balance is great and I like where my career is going. If McKinsey was asking me to move across the country to a HCOL area I wouldn’t do it - I like where I’m at now.

Good to know! Thanks for the insight, definitely looking to stay remote

Think carefully about this. I moved from a big 4 firm to Mckinsey. Yes, Mckinsey pays more but you will completely lose any life balance that you have, and a big cause of it is the culture and leadership expectations (not always necessarily the work itself). In addition, culture wise I found the big 4 to care more about you as a person and you have people that are more willing to invest time in supporting you. In Mckisney, leadership only cares about your outputs and efficiency. Everything is extremely fact paced that people turn into machines and become desensitised. As you can tell I am not sure I made the right move and there's a part of me that regrets it. List your priorities in life and make your decision accordingly.

I would be on the next train smoking...

It would depend on how much they will discount your previous experience. Got the opportunity to move from T2 to MBB a while back, but they would put me in at a level lower than I already had achieved at T2. Personally, I do not think I would accept a McK entry level position after 2 YOE for example.

Shared this in a comment thread on another post and want to get thoughts — I’m at 9 interviews for an M role at a startup (close to unicorn). The final loops were early this week and the recruiter reached out today to schedule one final interview focused on skills not in the job description. Should I just pull the plug?
