Seems low!?

You mean a level 4 MD. - level 1 is highest

There's 4 levels of MD. That actually sounds high for a level 1 MD.

Does seem low for MD. Could make more sense as a data point for an individual MD who had a bad year, but not an average.

It's lower but it's easier to make MD at ACN than Partner at D. Completely different sales targets as well.

Varies a lot, but roughly think MD4 = 275-350k, MD3 = 375-475k; MD2= 500-700k+. MD1 all $MM. Also note that there are 4 steps within each MD level (so 16 sublevels), and performance dominates; each comp range at level can vary a lot up or down YoY. Finally, account for distortions from RSUs... a lot of incentives for folks to stick around for "just 3 more years"....

How many years does it take to move up levels? Any idea?

There are more levels to get to MD though.

Don't know but I can tell you that moving from SM to MD is a big leap - requirements are high and expectations - IF you make it are higher.

@a3, at what level does an md become an SMD? How much do smds make?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
