What is the typical lag time between start date and offer at MBB as an experienced hire? I was told to expect a start date in a year during off cycle recruiting. Is this normal?

I am currently at a T2 firm, and I find it hard to believe that I could continue working here without any conflict of interest. I was told that the start date was flexible in 2020 but not before 2020.

It's a thing if you aren't aligned with campus timing. I had a six month lag between offer and start as experienced hire. Made me nervous things would change during that time, but no surprises. Got one call that base salary went up across the board, so that was cool! Awkward to mark time at my old gig, but it went by fast. Try not to stress.

I was a lateral and at least for BCG, they were very accommodating to me wrapping up at my previous firm.

They asked for two months, I was able to push back to six

If you’re starting as an experience hire with tenure, would be odd to make you wait. If you’re coming in as a campus hire equivalent I could see them asking you to wait until next start date, but those happen at least every 3 months (more in peak season)
