No. Who wouldn’t take MBB over a CPG role?

It’s considered a top cpg program but it just wasn’t for me

What??

Hey Addy in all seriousness I think it’s fine to do whatever you want with your LI profile. No one actually cares more about your career than you, and you should be proud of whatever jump/accomplishment you achieve.

Okay Yea I never added it to my LinkedIn in the first place

You are overthinking it. Who would not do it? They will probably think “good for him”

Are these old classmates or alums paying your bills? Are you in a better place career-wise than you were before? Then don’t worry and move on with your life.

They will be proud of you! Plus your total comp and trajectory also increased so it makes the MBA program look even better. You will be getting a lot of kudos/congratulations on LinkedIn. It means you and your skills are in demand.

Who cares what they think. Really. Why do you care

I also had alums help me interview for the position and I don’t want them to look at me crazy when they see I left already

Looking at an offer from a Series E startup and trying to figure out if this is worth it. I’m at 2 years post-MBA at a Big 4 (current TC right around 200k). New TC would be right around 200k, but would be like a 25% reduction in base - I like the role and the team but I dunno if that kind of base reduction is common for consulting exits? I see a lot of TC improvements, but wondering if those folks see a base jump too? Thanks!
