You can go back to MBB - really hard to join deal team post MBA. If you want to do PE on the investing side then this is a great opportunity.

Sums it up well

The question here is do you really want to do PE? If yes I’d take this offer (or try to recruit for a better one). If you stick in PE the comp will far outpace McK comp, and the couple years you “give up” won’t matter once you’re a VP+

like

I would pass. McK comp is a bit more guaranteed, and it seems like you wouldn't even be making more if you jump.

Does the firm provide you with “return offers”? I know for BAs they do, but worth finding out if they do the same for associates

Is this for investment team? Or operations?

Personally I’d be less concerned with near-term comp and more with career plans. Hard to get an investing role from McK (though possible) and the reverse always possible. You’ll be wealthy either way but wealthier in PE.

What is your YOE? Unless you are 6-8 years +, going to another associate role in PE isn’t a career killer if you are on VP track in a couple years.

That’s a pretty compelling offer!
