Anyone seen a successful move from risk to FP&A? I do have the CPA but haven't had much luck. Going to a more traditional financial analyst (aka accounting and financial reporting) role seems doable but FP&A really wants the modeling background that I don't have. Maybe I should just settle so I can get out of risk.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

My view: about 30%. That is still a great number, because it’s far higher than zero.
