Target mba?

My Big4 pays target MBAs more than non mba’s at the same cohort level. Non target MBAs receive same comp as everyone else

If no target MBA (top 20) your MBA doesn't really matter

My income rose 2x coming out of mine 🤷‍♂️

Guessing you did a top 20 MBA program if you feel this way. I would say makes sense ? Did you at least make a big salary jump compared to last role ?

20-30 mba, definitely was a big salary jump coming out of mba but I’ve watched a lot of people i worked closely with leave recently for faang and other consulting firms with significant raises

I thought half the point of an MBA was to use your network to get in. You have friends who work in those places now…get referrals and advice!

I am the sole income earner in a family of four. I need the health insurance for my disabled son.

Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that. Was looking forward to next year (including a family trip that’s been on the calendar for 2 years), but 3 people just left the team, only 1 will be replaced, and 3 more announced parental leave in spring. I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.
