MBB partner. Personal preference, but I love consulting, and the allure/prestige and lifestyle is up my alley. CxO at F500 is cool but not entirely my cup of tea.

Honestly the b4 senior partners I know live a good life. When you have junior partners working for you it seems like it’d be nice and low stress

It’s a revolving door anyways, so either is just fine

Partner at Big4/ACN/Tech(Not bigtech) firms. Least stress and reasonable pay. Work is almost always delegated to junior partners/SMs.

If you think the politics is bad in a consulting firm, just wait till you leave to join a large company!

These aren't equivalent choices. F500 can make significantly more than MBB

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

A lot of my friends have been getting new job offers from amazing companies and while I’m extremely happy and excited for them, I can’t help but feel sad & depressed. I’ve been interviewing for months and have gotten rejected from everywhere I’ve applied. I’m trying to stay positive and celebrate with my friends bc I know they’d do the same for me but it’s difficult because I feel left behind and unsuccessful compared to them. It would help if I knew there was a light at the end of this tunnel.

On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
