Comp Perspective. Income disparity between a Starbucks barista and consulting staff is the same as consulting staff and a partner.

5x-10x of a Starbucks Barista’s pay is roughly equivalent to an associate-manager’s pay at a consulting firm

5-10x of an associate-manager’s pay is roughly equivalent (or less) to a partners pay at a consulting firm

The income disparity is essentially the same between the two.

Now go get some coffee for the team..

It’s been a rough couple months professionally for my boyfriend. The job he was at got to be toxic and draining, so was interviewing trying to get a new job, then he finally had an offer and was interviewing with another firm too. The one that gave him the offer only raised his salary by 6k - he was at a nonprofit so was already not making very much. The other company would have been giving him 95k, guaranteed raises, etc. Realistically it was the type of role that would have truly changed..
