What’s the general consensus on product manager roles at McK/BCG? I see them posted pretty frequently but am kind of missing how they fit in the overall ladder/comp etc.

Second class to trad consultants, underpaid compared to tech, not true product management

Well I kind of figure anything not in the core ladder is kind of “second class” comparatively speaking. But good to know.

A1 hit it on the head. I’m a PM now at a midsize startup (~150 people) and get paid maybe 40k better than BCG digital ventures PM. As a former consultant I laughed at the pay difference (maybe 115k for more YOE than a C out of undergrad). Laughable as a former consultant. In addition to lower pay, it’s also lower ownership over the work. You don’t really get to have your own vision — I felt like it was more implementation for the clients. Kind of cool that you’re going from 0 to 1 (concept to real product), but someone else is setting the terms and defining what they want which is less exciting than owning it yourself (but also less stressful).

Great insight, thank you! I’m not looking to apply but I always see those roles open and just was curious
