I'm an experienced hire. I spent 10 years in the industry with good career progress. I applied recently to MBB and few tier-2 consulting firms. I didn't manage to get to MBB but I got an offer from ATK (which seems to me like a very good firm). My n 1 goal is to end up in McKinsey. Does it make sense for me to start at ATK and retry McK in 1 or 2 years?
A bit more of a context: all MBB feedbacks were very positive. I failed in calculations (but surprisingly I got more "lucky" at ATK, probably as I was less stressed). MBB told me to better prepare case interviews maths and apply again in 1 year. I'm just wondering if it makes more sense to keep working (progressing and earning more money) in my industry one more year and try again? or take ATK offer and apply again to MBB in 1 or 2 years?
