I am currently a Senior Associate 1 (Post-MBA grade) promoting to Senior Associate 2 this July in Strategy&, I have just received an offer to join Bain at the Senior Associate Consultant level.

Will it be worth it long term? ------- Reposting from Consulting Bowl to get MBB input
Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.
