Any other associate consultants left the consulting industry and took a pay cut?... I'm happy about leaving consulting as I took a role at a start-up in the industry that I love, but, I will miss that pay haha. I'm getting $70K in Boston, and have two dogs, so a little worried about change of lifestyle lol.

I agree, but I mean it's hard enough to find a job out of college. I feel a lot of people in consulting are jaded by the actual salaries that non-consulting people make in their first jobs. I myself was thinking I'd make 40k (in texas) out of college.

A little different situation than you OP, but considering leaving for no pay bump because B4 pay seems almost even compared to industry roles and requires more hours. Going to stick it out a bit to see if the raises start pulling me away from my peers in industry but unsure how much longer I really want to. I think the lifestyle change will be worth it!

The raises and promotions usually move more quickly than it does compared to industry.

i took $65k+esop at a tech startup in Mpls. looking at all aspects of the job holistically, i know it’s right for me and i value that a lot. plus it forces me to live a little more minimalist and i’ve found that living more that way has created more happiness for me too. it’s about perspective i guess
