Thoughts on exiting to IB subsidiaries of public accounting firms (big 4 corporate finance, baker tilly capital, bdo capital, etc). I know they’re not necessarily equivalent to going to a BB or even a pure play MM IB but can they still open up good exits and create better MBA prospects than say transaction services experience?

They don't provide meaningfully better MBA admissions prospects. Big 4 is tried and true regarding admits to bschool. At best, working for a bdo capital type org offers a little differentiation, not any prestige.

Mostly brand name. Adcoms don't really evaluate candidates on deal size. Employer brand, unless leading in its field is not as big of a deal as your career growth and overall story.

Have the option to transfer to Canada (Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal) and keep my US salary or to London at a 10% paycut. My current salary is 100K USD which will be ~65K GBP if London and ~125K CAD if Canada. Obviously my salary will go further in Canada but London sounds too cool to pass on. So my main question is: will living on 65K in London be comfortable enough that I just do it for the experience? Currently in NYC at 3 yoe and will go back to the US after 1 year for MBA. Please advise!

For all the US colleagues: A fellow consultant was doing his MBA in the US. He left in a hurry due to covid and came back to London, but didn’t close his bank account with Santander and left $6-7K.

He is not planning to go back for a year. Any advice?
