Not common for most. Maybe Executives?

Probably not at the major ones but I recently got one at a media agency.

Thought so - thanks! Nice to know it’s at least possible

I’ve never encountered this beyond a direct pouch at a leadership level

It is possible.

This is a legit question so don’t hate me just trying to understand if it’s worth it or not. What is the draw of applying to M7?

I know going to MBB they have pretty specific comp coming out for M7 grads but outside of those three firms, what is the draw? Trying to justify spending 200k for a degree.

Trying to move from manager to director of a team that I’ve grown over the last 14 years. It’s a very small team, but impacts almost every deal the company makes.

I’m concerned they’ll say the salary bump I want (25%) is too high, however I see comparable roles with other companies for $175 - 200k.

I’m at $120k, asking for $150k.

Any suggestions to help make my argument, or does this salary even make sense???
