Received an entry level MBB offer as an experienced hire. I’m going to accept the offer but am somewhat nervous about changing jobs with the state of the economy. Obviously the “looming recession” is just skepticism, but is MBB known to be secure during during economic downturns? My start date isn’t until late summer so I’m also nervous about it being rescinded if things go south.

I've had similar concerns but more so for promotion likelihood in 2 years or whatever. Then again, it's hard/ impossible to predict these things.

I wouldn't worry about your offer being rescinded due to the recession.

No. McKinsey partners take the first hit via their bonuses in a bad year. Never felt remotely at rush throughout the pandemic.

At risk*… I most certainly have felt rushed.

When is your start date?

Offer would definitely not be rescinded
