No idea on signing. Don't forget healthcare is 99% free (no premium, no deductible, $5 copay), retirement is 5% of base and bonus for As, and bonuses are 15-30% for As. Can't imagine you're taking much of a step back.

Pay at BCG is standardized per band in a region. Whatever band you map to, is what you'll be paid, non negotiable. If you're pre MBA, you'll be an Associate. Otherwise Consultant or higher.

Thanks guys! Really appreciate all of the insight! Final q, are signing bonuses a thing for experienced hires? If so, ballpark number?

We don’t look at your salary history to determine your base - our salary is standardized across the US. Every first year consultant gets the same base. So does every second year associate etc. if your current base is higher than the base of the level you would come in, we often account for that with a sign-on bonus

BCG has set pay for each level. For the consulting group at least.

Do you know what the SA band is? I figure I’d map closest to that level

Do it

Yeah I know it’s an investment. I just live in a high COL city so this affects a lot of day to day. I appreciate all of the feedback! I heard Associate is about $84, does that sound right?

Yes that’s right for associate base

Associate is 80-85k depending on tenure and when you started! So 84 sounds right

6, that helps a lot. I’m making a rate equivalent to SA right now. So going down to A would be a bit of a cut. I do know that the BCG bonus’s would blow Accenture’s out of the water

BCGers. If I have 2 years of experiences pre-MBA and want to join BCG. Will I join as 1st year associate or second year associate? Will my salary base be in the same 80K -85K range?

Likely yes

If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason. I have asked for more client facing exposure and haven't gotten it cause weird reasons, which was the factor that caused me to look for exits in the first place. But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?

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!
