Proof

Pros: paid more better exit opps. Cons: hours, pressure, up or out First, try to land an offer and make the decision once you get one. Imo - it is worth it

Are exit ops really that much better aside from PE and VC? If you're a high performer in a valued sector and you can articulate that, only PE/VC go hard on the MBB requirement, and most corporations (and certainly the public sector) don't differentiate. "Better exit ops" is taken as gospel but it's worth thinking about exactly where the exits are better and where the difference is less significant. That being said, starting from the entry level, you'll get paid more for each level and make it to M faster at MBB. So starting from the bottom, it's automatically worth it. As an experienced hire? Depends on your timeline.

Ofc it's part of a larger project but there's still some day to day work. Consider this: 1. We want an MBB to help us with an enterprise transformation project 2. MBB does initial strategy and assessment 3. Hey MBB can you guys stay an extra 2-3 months to help us implement and get the actual transformation lifted off the ground. BoD C suite has good relationship with the dozens of partners that have projects at this F50 and don't mind spending some extra $ to make sure implementation is successful 4. Team of MBB stays for phase 1.5/2 until next set of consultants (big4/accenture etc.) come in Maybe 10yrs ago MBB is still pure strategy but you can't say there's absolutely no staff aug/running day to day
