Why there is such a hiring spree from B4s and MBBs at the moment? Just plain curiosity since many people, with good positions, are leaving too!

Think about it. If many people are leaving voluntarily, there are open staff spots that need to be filled. Wouldn’t firms hire to fill those spots?

For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.

I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms?

Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.

Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with. By contrast, people under the age of 50 comprise 7% of COVID deaths. Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.
