Actually the compensation is significantly different from big4. All strategy firms pay roughly the same for MBA's from target schoolsAccenture, mbb, atk, ow, Deloitte. The differences come when you get into advisory or. On-strategy consukting

D1 I'm impressed. DC area is real expensive unfortunately :(

Too much math


@c1 add my spouse and it's probably lower


Capital gains will skew this over time for people a lot The older you are, the less relevant this number becomes MBA as well

Do you include real estate holdings in your net worth?


Similar after 20, but then again I don't work for Bain where junior consultants make CEO money

About the same actually

Dick measuring can be fun. Plus I honestly have no idea what a good benchmark is.

4.5-5 is global average or something.

40% after 8 years. Not all consulting though

40% sounds excessive but more power to you if you can still have the stuff you want and save like that. 20 always seemed a reasonable goal to me

40% after 5 years

55% after 3 years

Also new hires don't make CEO money at Bain (or any of the MBB). Not sure why people think that MBB makes so much money, but the compensation isn't substantially different from Big 4 or ACN.

Spent 5 years in non profit. I was about -20% net worth of all the money I had been paid (pre-tax) in that time period

WFH or Bench/Beach time does not mean "set your status to busy, and check email twice a day"! What's is WRONG with some people!


Not to start a political debate… I am not anti vaccine but have not wanted to get the COVID vaccine. I think I will be getting the vaccine tomorrow. Anyone else feel conflicted who originally really did not want to get it, but was kind of feeling forced to get it?

Women! Do u think you are at par with your male peers in terms of salary and title? If so, how have you negotiated that?


If you’re refusing to wear a mask, can you explain to me why? For the life of me I can’t understand why this a divisive issue. (I won’t judge you in the comments, but I can’t speak for everyone else)


Is project/program management consulting really that bad? I see it gets a really bad rap on here but wondering why exactly that is. I’m a college student. Sorry if I’m not using correct terminology for this type of management consulting.


Looking to join Capgemini Invent, what is the company culture like? What is the salary like for an entry level consultant (I have 1 YOE) based in central London? Any tips for salary negotiation? Capgemini


Biggest lies from your colleagues:


Do you still wear a mask in Uber? “like” for yes. “helpful” for no.
