Nope. They going to be asking you for referrals.

👌 OP

If your mentors/sponsors are real mentors/sponsors and genuinely care about you, you taking another job should not change how they feel about you or their willingness to support you for future roles.

Nope

Surprised ppl think this isn't an issue. You'll be burning some bridges for sure (at least with more senior folk). Juniors / people in your cohort wouldn't care.

Why? Are people in these big 4/mbb companies so bitter that they can’t celebrate someone moving? How does moving to a different company burn bridges as long as you are doing it respectfully?

Do not care about how other folks think about you for this. When you become a partner at MBB, they will reach out to you.
