I’m a MBB EM/PL, 5YOE, no MBA. Is it possible to exit to a $350k+ TC role in industry? Feel like lack of MBA is inhibiting for high TC given my age.

It’s not the lack of MBA, I think it’s more lack of YOE which a lot companies care about (including tech). It may be doable if you find something where you can contribute a ton of expertise (maybe former client) and they really value consultants. Or if you’re good at data some DS positions will pay more than your typical S&O jobs.

Idk where to look other than tech and maybe industrials

What range are you getting?

You can make a case for no or low code PM depending on what exactly you did at MBB and whether you did anything on the side

I left at the exact same experience last year and had an offer from a HF that paid in that range. Otherwise best I found (outside of tech) was $300k TC but was in FS. Real, real tough sell at that experience level if you go a F500 route.

Agree with BCG1, it’s more the years of experience vs MBA. If you can stick it out to AP I think that would help your exits, it will even things out slightly vs more tenured people

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
