McK or BCG, yes. Bain, no

Facing heavier business model pressure than the other 2: 1. Their original premise of serving only one client in an industry and that client using only one strategy consulting firm (I.e., the relationships with Dell, Intel, etc.) is evaporating - those clients are now sourcing from many folks. 2. Their pyramid is structured differently (more of a pyramid than the diamond that McK and BCG have) so the cost structure is lower and they typically come in at a substantial discount using more junior resources. That space is losing share to the Big 4.

God, don’t do it. Ignore the honeyed promises of recruiters. It’s two levels.

Came from b4 as Manager to EM. Senior BA, not so certain.

Lol what? A Big 4 MBA hire Manager promote would NEVER go to MBB senior analyst role, are you out of your mind?

As an ex-mbb employee, there’s a non zero chance that you get transitioned out / out counseled at 2 years. So the promises of steep pay raises and promotions may not come to fruition.

Right away

How much experience do you have? If not a lot, that's fine. Otherwise, can't you switch to the post MBA level? (Associate, consultant?)

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
