Alvarez & Marsal fish: Can anyone provide details on post-MBA compensation? Details in comments

I’m currently finishing up my first year of employment post-MBA (~T10 program). Following b-school, I’ve been doing primarily ODD with some CDD work with a B4 consulting group. I have an interview coming up with A&M for a Senior Associate position in their Operations Group/Rapid Results practice (located in NYC). Any idea what I could expect for base and total comp, coming in with 1 year post-MBA experience? My understanding is that base may be lower but that bonus is likely a lot higher than at my current firm. Management consulted lists $125k as base though, which seems low (even for someone straight out of b-school, though I’m not sure how that may be adjusted for something with a bit more experience)

like

1. Senior rate = $425/hour 2. Total hours in a year = 2000 (100% utilized) Total collections = Total revenue = $425*2000 = 850k (100% collections) 3. Senior Associate take home % = 25-28% of total collections 4. Your potential total comp = 25%*850k = $212k. 5. Bonus = $212k - total annual base Few assumptions that can change your comp: - Collections % - utilization % - take home % based on your performance. Hope this helps.

Have friends that work at A&M, my understanding is that they make up for lower pay by slotting ppl at manager if they have enougj experience. My friend was hired out of MBA at m which I think is closer to 140-150 base.

Notoriously inaccurate for consulting salaries, as it usually doesn’t differentiate between practices at a firm

Low base but variable comp up to 40% for the very top performers. No SC level means pay bands seem disappointing compared to B4.

All a lie, depends on which MD you work with

MBA doesn’t really matter at A&M, it’s more about YOE and your level coming in.
