What was your salary increase after getting your MBA? Was there any bonus if the company helped pay for your MBA?

You should prob exclude immigrants cause you might get some crazy numbers ;).


What is the years of experience to go along with theses?


I went from McK Brazil to McK US, so if we include exchange rate 👀👀 lol

A lot!! Let’s keep it that way.

Depends where you get an MBA

$85k to $210k TC

What were you doing before and what role did you get after your mba?

Might be relatively modest, but for me (just base comp): got 20% bump post-Mba (target but not M7), then grew 45% on top of that in 2 years (including counteroffer and promo). Then snagged a startup gig for an additional 15%. So roughly doubled my base in under 3 years.

EDIT: had 6 YoE (in industry) prior to Mba

65k to 200k

62k to 130k, 3 YOE before MBA

$100k increase - my T15 school promised that and eventually delivered.

80%, but only lasted 3 years and then non MBAs caught up and leveled out.

I went from $100K to $210K TC (market research manager to B4 SC).

$93k to $200k

I’m convinced that “implementations” are more challenging than “strategy” consulting. Having done both, the nuances associated with having to figure out every last detail in implementations makes the work significantly more challenging than painting high-level strategy in what is often broad brushstrokes filled with assumptions.

Just got a huge offer from a start up! 300k base. I heard RECESSION starts in July 2022, does it make sense to keep my 150 K job at Accenture and reject the offer? Don’t want to risk getting fired from start up. Please share some advice. I heard it on the news today, Nasdaq is at a 14 year low

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.


Has anyone gone from making 120k per year to 160/180k ? How did it feel and was it a huge life improvement and did u finally feel like everything your invested in your work life paid off? I’m at 120k rn and for the number of hours I’ve put in and the complete lack of savings I have living in a hcol city I’m hoping that my next salary will ameliorate my money worries . I don’t think after all I’ve done (school/work) I should feel underpaid and broke but I do

Why don't more (white collar) Americans take breaks in-between jobs? Like a month or two summer break. Is this mindset that you need to work all the time a vestige from back when people would work at the same company for 40 years until they die?


Hi Guys. Need help evaluating two offers: 1. McKinsey - Associate in Risk Consulting - $165K base/30K sign-on. NYC/Chicago. 2. Facebook - Program Manager in Security and Privacy - $160K base/$100K RSUs over 4 years/$20K sign-on. Bay Area I have 6 YOE at Deloitte in Cyber since graduating college. Has always been a desire to work at McK but don’t plan to stay in Consulting long term. Was all set to join McK until this offer came along. Any advice on what factors I need to consider?


If you could go back and change one thing about your 20’s, what would it be and how do you think it would affect your life now?


Do you guys feel a sense of belonging at your workplace? Maybe it’s just me, but I grew up in a lower middle class family, went to a tier 2 school, didn’t get an mba. I’m now a Partner and make $500k+


Trying to assess if an mba is worth it (25 year old male). I am a VP making $200 K in pharma transaction advisory considering moving to IB. Worth the two year hold on my career and $400 K in lost salary? It’s terrifying to go back into debt...
