Would you rather be a partner at MBB/b4 or take a cxo level role with unicorn startup like snowflake or stripe? And why? (there is no 3rd option). Age / location / industry / culture / wlb etc is not relevant!!
how difficult is it to move from Oliver wyman to mbb? I guess we are competing each other, so it should be doable??
Got an offer at one of the MBB and in process for Accenture in their Strategy division (CEO & ES). For MBB, would be coming at a level below (PL/EM) with 1 year tenure and Accenture would be lateral (SM). Leaning towards the MBB offer as it has been my dream to get into MBB and the overall value proposition.
Is there any strong reason to prioritize Accenture Strategy over MBB in this case? Would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.
Wanted to know the salary expectation for a senior associate in Big 4 strategy moving to MBB associate consultant role as an experienced hire and if it’s be a good move or to just stay put where I’m at.
Outside of MBB, what are the highest paying consulting firms with strong life sciences (drugs, molecular diagnostics, etc.) strategy (e.g. growth, competitive response - preferably non-diligence non-PE focus since I want to have somewhat of a life) practices? I'd measure 'strength' primarily by quality of exit opportunities (and I'd measure quality of exit opportunities by starting salary and growth potential for the roles you get when you leave). Any insights would be much appreciated, thanks!

Good companies for technical Analytics Managers/Directors?
Currently an analytics lead at a medium retail tech startup. Little less than 2 years at MBB post-MBA and a year in current role.
