McKinsey & Company Trying to decide between a pension fund PE investment opportunity or an offer from McKinsey & Company NY. TC is better at the PE firm but the prestige is obviously there with McK. I recognize this is a very privileged position to be in but can I get people’s genuine perspectives?

Depends on where you are in life. For example, I’m in my mid 30’s have done the grind, and focus on WLB first. I would go for the PE gig no questions asked as long as it’s something I enjoy doing. That McK job will come with many hours and sure it looks good on the resume, but where are you at in your life priorities to exchange a majority of your time for “prestige” and how does it play in your long game?

helpful

Really helpful hearing your perspective on this :) especially since you’re a few years ahead and are likely thinking about things I’m not yet considering

Did you use LinkedIn?

Only to find the right people to reach out to

What do you want to do long term?

Again, depends on what you want to do long term. If it’s FAANG to make the 350-400K, you are better off in MBB. If you want to be an investor then PE is better

I would suggest trying your hardest and get both offers first. Then you can decide. Anything else is premature.

FYI - experience in both McK and PE Ops

So Altman clearly beats out MBB in some sectors and is trying to position themselves as an MBB or perhaps tier 2 equivalent, but they’re just not matching the salaries. Why were Analyst salaries only raised to $95K when my friends at big firms (not just tier 2 but also MBB) will be making $100-120k as second years?

Getting a lot of completely unjustified you-should-have-known-this-already statements. Hopelessly understaffed team. Reevaluating my decision to work at D.
