I would think rankings would be: 1. Deloitte (obvi) 2. McK 3. Bain 4. BCG

Definitely not true!

For me, no. Always been the culture I vibe least with and that would be the deciding factor. Not to mention, would be a huge step back in Alphabetical order that I’m not sure I want at this point in my career. Source: Have had deep talks and 2nd round interviews with folks / recruiters @ all 3.

If I had a cross offer from all three I'd go BCG or Bain. That is based on me enjoying my interactions with folks that work there vs McKinsey. Between BCG or Bain probably Bain as I like the PE space. That said they are all great firms and maybe the McKinsey folks I know are not representative.

Wouldn’t influence my decision— I think it’s unlikely they’ll go insolvent and they are still widely regarded as the top consulting firm. That said, I don’t currently have a desire to leave OW

Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?
