2015 Grad. Was corp counsel in Phoenix making 160k. Interviewed with two biggest law firms in SLC and two public companies, all offered 110k base and 10k bonus. Does this sound low or normal?

160k bass for in-house with 3 years of experience is on the 75th percentile even for SF-Bay Area. It is likely you were at the high end of comp targets for Phoenix and coming in at the 30th - 50th percentile in SLC.

That sounds incredibly low

I'm in SLC. The regional firms are starting first years at 125k to 130k, so I would take another look at who you are talking to. Likely not truly the most prominent firms.

That absolutely sounds low. 30th percentile is low. SLC won’t pay big city prices but still.

That's....bizarre. As someone else noted, don't expect the same scale as larger markets. But I just checked NALP and several SLC firms are on there and each one's *starting* salary is higher than what you reference.

Mck case screening today. Feedback was more structure after the first question and more detail (examples, think along value chain). I wanted to share to help others.

It’s the nerves, you know? When presenting at work for pres/vps, it doesn’t hit me like it does for this interview. Maybe test anxiety? My handwriting gets unrecognizable. The wanting it badly might be the reason I don’t get it. Talk about a catch 22.

Anyway, have a great weekend all! It’s cocktail & study time for me.

1. Is it the best they can do for Strategy Manager?
2. Do they honor promotion commitments (given i deliver/perform good) ?
