2 years per level. You are borderline between a SA and a C. If you have target school degrees + your current job is flashy I would push for C otherwise SA is most likely.

Thanks B1, appreciate the confidence!

You might come in as SA, but be fast tracked to C based on your performance

Thanks B6, definitely will keep that in mind!

FYI I had 5 YOE and an industry relevant masters and came in as SA (this was with an Ivy graduate degree and some very prestigious work experience and awards). I was annoyed about it originally but got promoted in a year and am somewhat thankful that I had the extra year to develop, as I’m approaching the 2 year mark and am definitely not ready to be a PL (Project Leader) yet. But my prior work experience also wasn’t at all related to consulting so your mileage may vary.

Comp is inflexible at BCG and attached to your level. Don’t enter recruitment thinking you can negotiate.

I am facing one of the most wild shifts in mindset ever — i always thought i wanted to be this super accomplished career driven woman, but all i care about these days is making enough money to buy more real estate and retire asap. I feel like a hypocrite some days, and somedays i’m willing to sacrifice job interests for higher salary and just get to my goal of early retirement though real estate. Can someone please tell me i’m not going crazy :( this duality is weird to deal with.
