In terms of prestige, how do you guy see Consulting (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4) versus non-IB/PE finance roles? For example, working at Strategy& vs. a Global Markets role at BNP Paribas

Why does this even matter

"Prestige" only really matters to people looking for their first, maybe second jobs in a given field. Once you're past that it matters less and less. There are partners at KPMG earning 10x what some partners at McKinsey are making. Hell, there are some B4 Audit partners making millions in recurring fees from the same clients every single year, doing the exact same work.

1st year B4 partners aren't going to be making that far off 500k either, and you can make >$5M without being anywhere close to retirement, if you're a good salesman

Don't care about prestige in the slightest, so they're all the same to me 🤷

You need to relax with the prestige posts. No one cares in the long run.

Don't think I've ever once thought about going for those roles. So doesn't matter?

Prestige is built based on a number of factors, comp, comp growth, career progression being major parts of that… so if those finance roles pay a lot, have fast progression, and have big comp growth, they sound pretty prestigious to me

Okay you lost me there 😂

Global markets is capital markets so still technically front office finance (just to be that guy)

Hey now, stay in your lane IB1!

Heya!!! I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency. The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk.

I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company. Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools .

Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
