You'd 100% come in as an associate or maybe a senior associate (position only for experienced hires) I know this because I came in as a SA from B4.

IBM - It’s not just about harder/steeper curve. It’s also just different. And when promotion timing / odds starts getting communicated after 12 months in role, there isn’t much room for error. Flipping your question around, how amazing do you have to be to be measured against peers who already have 2 years experience at BCG or 3-5 years outstanding corporate experience + an advanced degree? That sounds hard to me and I’m living it

I think it’ll depend on your overall project experience, compatibility with a new role and ability to adjust to a new way of working. A friend of mine moved from Accenture to BCG. At Accenture she was a SM but they asked her to do first 3 months at a C level, and then 6 months at a Manager level. However, I’m not entirely sure what was the reasoning ( hence my guess in the first paragraph )

I’m a C at Accenture and BCG reached out for a Senior Associate position. Interviewing soon.

Based on a chart I found, it shows BCG hierarchy as 2 years as an associate and then jump to consultant

That’s fair but you cannot compare 2 years at ACN with 2 years at BCG. Consultant at BCG is the post mba role and pays 165 base...there are significant expectations at that level so pushing for it would most likely be a disservice to yourself

To protect you and offer you the greatest chance of success... associate. Learning and salary curve will still be plenty steep

From a pure career development and exit opps perspective, what’s the 🐠’s perspective on the better choice? Is the Big4 consulting tag + exit opps >>> $60-70k pay with bonuses? Also, is getting into MBB unrealistic from either/both (have a deferred admit at a T10 school)?

I'm a rising senior looking for new-grad roles. I'm looking to go into PM long term.

While the APM role is obviously more relevant, I'm concerned that the tech reputation and bad Product culture will make it not worth it to turn down MBB.

Feel as if I’m constantly behind peers in terms of career progression (e.g. MBB/ FAANG) despite having a decent-ish background (tier 2 consulting and now at top tier finance company in strategy role). I find that the companies I’ve worked at have very set progression based on tenure, with no room for negotiation. I’m really ambitious/ hardworking and I am not sure where to go that would match my goals of career progression. Is it just MBB/ FAANG or is there anywhere else? Any ideas?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
