Some of y’all need to quit with the assumption OP is bragging. I certainly have been in a situation where I had NO IDEA if I was being over/underpaid. We all have to learn the intricacies of this industry somehow, and it’s through asking these questions and learning from others who are experienced. Why do we need to put people down before helping them? Food for thought... That said...OP, you are definitely overpaid as an M1....but congratulations.

You’re on the right track, OP. Keep doing you.

Is this a joke? Yes

You’re over-paid, it sounds like. This role doesn’t seem comparable to the MBA hire roles that would be 60hrs+

Yeah, don’t take it as a dig, obviously. Sounds like you have shown your value and are killin it.

Nice humble brag. You make over 150k for less than 40hrs a week, 0 travel...respectfully...get the heck outta here. You really think you are under paid???

Look internal, it’s like a industry job with pay that is closer to that of a consultant’s ... or at least that’s the feedback I’m getting here. Thanks.

It’s a strategy/innovation/market alignment/competitive intelligence role for the us firm. Really it’s just one of those but don’t want to disclose too much as I’d be easy to find. Hope this helps and doesn’t come across as sassy.

I travel ... maybe one week per month. I’m just trying to benchmark myself given I’m not client service and TC seems to be below managers in comparable client service roles. Just wondering if that difference is normal. Thanks.

You’re overpaid for sure

Well here is the catch, I just got an mbb offer for client service ... and I’m considering a switch.

Mid 20’s and up for M this year. Feels like I’m running down a hill and my feet are getting in front of me some days

are 35 hours ... and my bonus is a bit more than avg client service bonuses at the sc level. What do you think? My TC promo raise was only 6% (meh).

About the same as me and I am a SM

^likely homegrown?

Make more than I do as an M2

OP, what group are you in, if you don’t mind saying?

So what is your new offer for? Internally at some point you will probably hit either a promotion wall or salary band ceiling.

Honestly I don’t think it’s worth it. If you’re in a low COL, and making that much money, you can easily live a great life. Assuming you can still get promo to SM/MD in your current role and maintain a similar WLB, I think you’re in a golden spot a bunch of other people wish they were in. I don’t know if you have a family/spouse/kids, but that’s also another consideration. Then again, if you want to partner track, give up your WLB, and one day try to make millions instead of capping at 200-300k at D, then go for it.

OP if I can go the rest of my life with ur schedule at 2% pay raise even I would be a Deloitte lifer.

Wow I’m internal wfh and can tell you our internal roles make that at SM level. Our M’s probably start $110K base. Hopefully I’ll find out this promo cycle. I’m a level below at total comp of only $105K. $95K base / $10K bonus. If I had to guess with an MBA and that pay you’re internal strat.
