Biz dev will.

BD is more on the sales side.

None will pay better than a top performer at MBB, even SWE. SWE will likely pay better for average performers. Of course sales has the highest pay ceiling at FAANG, but it’s tough...

Agreed - it gets very hard to beat MBB or even tier 2 strategy consulting pay post manager as a top performer... but that obviously comes with downside. Biz dev (not sales - no quotas) at AWS does pay on par with top performer comp at MBB / Tier 2 strategy houses.

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Accepted at Darden with scholarship, but have interviews at Tuck, Fuqua, Johnson, and Ross. (Maybe Wharton) Applied to Darden EA so I will need to put down a deposit prior to knowing about others. Is it worth putting down the deposit to secure something in case I don’t get into any others? My thinking is Darden with scholarship + interviews at others should be a good sign for the others, but curious if others think potentially losing a couple grand in the long run is worth the security.

I’m in a pickle. Currently working in multistate tax and I am not a fan. I just accepted a position with KPMG on their methods team (it sounds like interesting work and I’m sick of compliance). I put in my notice and my Deloitte manager is trying to fight for me. He wants to match the pay they are offering and get me into a group that I like more. I am a ball of anxiety. Loved the people I met with for KPMG, but having my manager push so hard for me is making me have second thoughts. Any input?
