I have graduated from MBA, and after applying to several firms, my plan didn't work out. In my country, big four's doesn't have their pure strategy consulting arm (ex: Monitor Deloitte, Strategy &, etc). I am thinking of joining a PwC's consulting practice, which doesn't have those typical "MBA level roles", and pays much lower.
I have seen many examples like: PwC Consulting -> MBA ->Strategy & (or other MBB firms). My story is different.- I will have to start with PwC Consulting after my MBA. My question is, will my MBA experience still be valued by strategy consulting firms if I didn't enter my ideal consulting job straightly after MBA? Also, would this "downgrade" experience be viewed negatively?
