Following a 12 year progressive career in industry and an Executive MBA (target school) I made a switch to strategy consulting joining a Tier-2 company as Manager one year ago. The ambition however has always been to switch to MBB. I now have an offer to join an MBB but as a consultant (C1). Overall compensation is 15% less compared to what I am currently making.
Compensation is not my main concern - I should be able to make up the difference quickly as salaries are generally higher at MBB. However, I do feel that I might be "discounting" my experience too much considering my experience prior to consulting (GM and Regional Manager seniority) and the 1 year experience as Manager in a Tier-2 company.
I realize that this might not be the typical question for this forum but your feedback and input will be high appreciated.
