Personally? Take it, especially if you're interested in tech. Why stick around unnecessarily? You can still do the MBA afterwards if you feel like you need or want to.

I have an MBA and I say forget that and go for the money. If after a year or even a few months, it's not what you thought it'd be, then go for MBA. Besides, you'd probably be more attractive as an MBA candidate with a longer and more diverse experience

I'm just wondering if the offers get better after 2 years in consulting. Interested in tech, just want to make sure I don't get "stuck"

I'm including stock options in that comp figure. But base alone is like 70% increase.

Honestly, not really (at least, based on the people I know).

Take it

I’m up for partner next year at my Am Law 85-100 firm, where I’m quite happy, other than with respect to comp. With this market paying what it’s paying, I’m getting a lot of interest in other firms.
