I have a Big 4 offer in hand and two other Big 4 interviews coming up, one first round and the other final. I desperately need some advice.
I am an international student in the final year of the MBA program at a top-25 school, on full scholarship and have a GMAT of 750. I have almost 7 years of work ex in a MNC bank and a European consulting giant. I also have more than 150 published articles to my name on technology, and they have been referenced in reputed international publications. I am looking to get in technology consulting.
I have an offer from a Big 4 to join as Senior Associate/Consultant but the offer seems to be a bit low considering what I believe I bring to the table: 115k base and 10k signing, no relocation separately. Now, I have two other Big 4 interviews coming up over the next few weeks.
With one of them, one of the students from last year's class with similar but slightly lower experience than me, had received an offer to join as Manager. Do you think I can ask to be considered for that role during the final round interview? Also, if I am not specifically asked, will it be imprudent to mention that I want a quick decision because of the offer in hand? What do you think of the offer I currently have?
