Switch to MBB from EY-P TS&E?

Positives are pretty obvious (prestige, project experience)

Negatives would be:
- 5% salary pay cut
- Forgo bonus, raise, and promotion to Director/Manager this year
- Delayed promotion

How come you took a paycut?

MBB usually have competitive pay structure at each level.

Gotcha. I would do a NPV analysis then based on different scenarios. Ex1: staying long term in consulting, BCG will quickly outpace EY in comp, no sweat. Ex2: you’re planning to jump to industry soon where BCG brand doesn’t matter that much, probably stay put to maximize near term earnings. Ex3: BCG brand opens doors that were harder to access before... etc.

If you don’t mind the mind-numbing work at TSE AND plan to leave consulting in the next 2-3 years, stay at EY.

Otherwise, go to BCG. Way higher earning potential past M level if you stay in consulting and more interesting cases whether you stay in consulting for the long run or not.

Bcg will be a lot more exciting (and a whole lot more stressful). 5% cut doesn’t matter - M at EYP also doesn’t mean anything.

Can I throw A&M in this mix too ? Have BCG, EYP TSE and A&M PEPI to choose between. All for manager position. Don’t know if I want to get out of consulting because this is the only job I’ve ever had and don’t know if anything else will be equally exiting / will pay the same. Open to suggestions folks ....

Unless it’s expert track, go with BCG.

What if you don’t plan on staying in consulting more than another 12-18 months?
