No, hop to a place that gives you a meaningfully different work experience and pay differential. You’ll do basically the same work at MBB for basically the same pay. FWIW I had the option to go to MBB from another T2, but turned it down and ended up in the buyside. Was excruciating at the moment, but so happy in hindsight.

I have this exact same question...like idk if the “prestige” is worth it but also feeling stuck in terms of finding the right exit opp...

I think it’s worth it. If I were at your young age, I would definitely make the leap. Many outside of our sphere have heard of MBB and not so much the T2’s. The brand will be helpful later.

What about post mba from big 4?

Depends on where you are in your career. At this point I’ve invested so much in building my network and reputation at OW that a lateral would feel like a multi year setback. Different story if you are early in your time at OW
