Time sensitive question, have two offers. One is GIR in SLC with GS. Other is Generalist Consultant at McKinsey. Which would you recommend (McKinseys offer is slightly higher but assuming due to location). Thank you greatly for any insight! Hoping to get into private equity in the distant future

*bit more than slightly! About $45k but with COL difficult to differentiate:)

Congrats! Good place to be.

Don’t know much about GIR at Goldman. I’d go with the McKinsey offer if WLB is not a priority.

Id take Consulting at McKinsey over any Non IB job at a bank if I was focused on getting into PE

I second this

Exits are vastly different. For PE go McKinsey. GIR in SLC is not the same as GIR in NY but if you perform well, you have a chance to migrate. ER in general will have a tougher time exiting to PE.

ER is the most pointless work ever. Creating research and models all day that barely ever actually provide any value or are accurate in targets. McKinsey would be my vote

Mck, not even a question

I know they’re considering me for a new opening coming in Q4, I’ve spoken with both my manager and VP about my career goals. I’m pretty sure that they’d fill this role anywhere in the mid 60s. if I were to get it, that’s a 10k pay bump for me, and I desperately need it. is that normal? I’ve never been in this situation b4 and want to make sure I get paid adequately but I’m young and have 0 insight.

I recently (1+ yr ago) transitioned from consulting to industry. The hours are much better. Total comp is less than what I was making on the consulting side (-15% less). My schedule is much better, and I have a good routine outside of work. However, I don't feel accomplished at my current role and feel like I am not learning as much. I was hoping that I would make up for that comp difference in a year or two but upward mobility seems limited. Is it too soon to look for another job?
