After several months of interview, I have failed to get offers at tier 1 & 2 consulting firms. The only offer I got is from a boutique consulting firm based in my local country, providing extremely low salary (local package at an emerging market country), and the salary is even lower than my previous job before MBA.
At the same time, I got a corporate bank relationship manager role which provides high rank (AVP) and acceptable salary in US at a tier-one corporate bank, and the salary would be 4 times compared to the boutique consulting firm. Although the salary is better, this would not be an ideal job for me, as I have aimed for more analytical roles instead of a sales role. (This is a corporate banker sales role instead of an investment banker role.) I am afraid that this role would be viewed as too sales-oriented, and would be an obstacle for me to switch to tier-one consulting firms in a few years.
On the other hand, the boutique consulting firm is quite well known in my country and would be a good place to build up my skillset. Although I am taking a long term view on my career, the obvious concern is the extremely low salary, which would be 20% lower than my job before MBA, and probably 70% lower than the corporate bank role in US. Would really appreciate any advice. Thank you so much!
