MBB in UK is as follows, all total comp inc. bonus: -Business analyst (grad) - 2 years to next level £50-60k -Associate - 1.5 years to next level - £90-100k -Engagement manager - 1.5/2 years - £115-130k -Associate partner - 2 years - ~£200k -Partner - (really varies but 3-5 years I think) - ~£500k - Senior partner - £1-10m Less confidence in the last 3, but they are definitely the right ballpark

Although a business analyst most commonly would go off and do an MBA or something before coming back as associate, but they can go straight to associate

What are your hours like? The speed of progression is insane

Everyone has different experience and depends on your sector ofc but id say my experience has been fairly typical which is, average 9-9 mon - thu, with maybe a cumulative couple of months a year of more brutal like 9-11/12 and I’ve had a few nights up to 3am, and then I’ve also had a few months more chill at ~9-7. In addition to this I’ve had ~2-3 weeks or so really chill with only a few hours a day (this is the lucky beach time when nothing to do before Xmas or casual training time, or weird waiting for scope def of project etc) Most people who regularly work beyond 10 I think is because things are poorly scoped, they are over delivering or don’t know how to push back Then Fridays pretty much always 9-6

Not worth it IMO for a few extra £££s (after tax)

Can someone really make it to AP with 5.5 years of experience?

Yep it’s possible, of course the progression only applies for those who make it to each next level, and it can be slower for people, but it can actually even be faster for some too

V helpful. Does this vary by team? Or standard across the board?

Standard across the board for consultants, we also have expert roles & specific design/digital implementation specialists etc and comp may vary a little there, but not hugely i don’t think

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
