Would you consider taking a downgrade from a (new) Manager role in Big 4 to Senior Consultant at MBB

It's not a downgrade




How do you guys do itttt


Depends on your age. If you're ~30, go for it.

Bcg1 why is it not a downgrade ? I have to wait two more years for a promotion

Also new role is less advisory, more analytics

You going to BCG Gamma or something? You can get promoted earlier than two years if you do well. I have a buddy at McK who only spent 1 year as an A before making EM because he is awesome.

Sr C manages without the title. In 1 year you will manage. At bcg there is no manager / analyst split. At PL you would do work and manage. By far the hardest level.

Thanks! Not BCG but very similar to BCG Gamma

I've been looking for salaries for various position with Big 4 assurance, but information is all over the place. So after some research here, reddit, goingconcern, glassdoor, etc. I've put this info together: !! The salary grid below is for Big 4 Audit, HCOL (NYC,SF), gross amounts without bonus !! Of course they can be higher or lower by a few k's on each position depending on impact tier, but I tried to look for average amounts. If you have information please post it so we can update.

Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
