I’ve got ~2 YOE at a boutique consulting firm and ~2 YOE at a tier 2 consulting firm (OW, LEK, EYP, ATK). Any chance to enter MBB at a non entry level position, even though I’m only 1 role above entry level at my current firm?

You’d probably come in as a BA still at mck but would get a higher compensation than a new BA

Maybe SAC at Bain? Any Bainies that can comment?

What B1 said. Not common to bring in AC2s, but it can happen in rare circumstances. I’d say generally that ppl with <2 YOE will come in as an AC1, people with 5 YOE potentially as C1 if we’re hiring for that role from laterals.

Depends on the country. In the UK you’d probably get in as a junior associate (typically promoted to associate within a year)

I’m U.S. based

I think you’re fair game for Consultant level at BCG with ~4 years of strategy consulting experience. You’d be experienced hire at same level as MBA hires. Worst case, you’re A2 and promoted within 12 months (not a bad position since you get some leeway)
