Get the cima and do the week long Wharton class, you'll get more value out of that than those designations

Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified).

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!

Currently in consulting. Have always liked Organizational Change Management, but have also been interested in Project Management. Between an Associate PM at a F50 company and an OCM Consultant at a boutique, which would you pick? Same city. PM pay is a little higher but workload will likely be more and culture will be more cut-throat. I was thinking I can probably get into PM later if consulting did not work out, and this hopefully won't be my last time getting an offer from a big firm.
