Curious what KPMG salaries are like in consulting? I spoke with a recruiter and they said senior associate role requires 3 YOE minimum and the highest they could go for a strategy associate role was 90K. Was I lowballed or is comp at KPMG lower than other consulting firms?

Is the 2 years consulting experience? If it’s extremely relevant you might be able to convince a recruiter to give you an SA role at higher but you definitely aren’t going to get higher than 90k as an associate and that pretty much only a possibility because of NYC. NY campus hires are at around 72k for perspective.

Varies greatly depending on MBA and YOE. SA with MBA starts from ~$150K. Without it’s probably closer to $120k

I don’t know if that’s possible, the highest salary band for associate is 85k. So that seems low

I came in as an associate with a ton of working experience but only about a year consulting experience at $85k. We know it’s possible to get higher, but it’s not common and you have to have some stellar reason for it. “I make more” doesn’t cut it.

Oops thought this post was about a senior associate

Got a senior associate offer from KPMG for 120k

What COL? And practice?

Is it a Tier 1 city?

NYC

90k is normal for an associate. Why do you deserve to make 100k right out of college 😂

Tech consulting. And tier 3 city

Made 95 as an associate but not strategy.

I got SA 135

I have 3 YOE in audit and I make $90k, so when I get promoted to SA I assume I'll be making $100k+.

Nice! Audit tends to pay less so you’re probably at the very top of your band

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!

What would you do: in discussion with a small agency to potentially work full time. They wanted to do a 60 day engagement first to see if its a good fit. Kick the tires from both parties makes sense. They asked for my rates and gave them an hourly freelance rate to where they asked if I’d be willing to do a rate that was based off my “future” un-guaranteed employment salary, less than $100/hr, which was less than half my freelance rate. Does this sound fishy? Am I wrong to be skeptical?

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
