My (non-MBB) progression at a “annualized total comp package” has been (with estimations around bonus ranges at middle historical avgs): Sept-Dec 2017: $98K Jan-Jun 2018: $102K, promote to Senior Analyst Jul-Dec 2018: $111K Jan-Jun 2019: $117K, promote to Associate Jul-Dec 2019: $163K Jan-Dec 2020: $223K

Lol I’m a manager at Kearney. The total comp is literally spot on. As a first year mgr, including profit sharing I’m going to hit about $264k.

I was 28 when I crossed 100K , 35 when I passed 200, 38 when I passed 400, and 44 when I passed 800 . At no stage could I have predicted what would happen in 5 years - and I still can’t for next 5 . And for some perspective - plenty of people who passed UG with me made 100K by 25 and 200 by 28, but then didn’t accelerate much more . I know at least two UG friends who crossed 200K at 32 or so but then by the time they were 45 were making upwards of 1.2M It’s fairly unpredictable how it will all play out even for the lucky few

You get paid the same as mba graduates once you get promoted to that level, so like 170k+bonus

If you don’t go MBA route, you’ll hit ~200 when you get promoted to consultant at Bain. Bain is probably the slowest MBB as far as accelerating career progression out of UG

Yes— my pay last year (year 3) was north of 200. I’ll be promoted to PL later this year (I have not and do not plan to get an MBA) and so the numbers will keep going up. Feel very lucky to be Team Green 🍀

Yes

Can you get this far in MBB without a MBA?

My wife is a partner there

Can anyone share rough estimate of difference between salary and bonus? I'm baffled and quitting

Check the MBA (not undergrad) section of this link. It is ballpark correct. I think base might be $5k low for us but same idea. Note — it’s labeled MBA but you don’t actually need an MBA to hit that salary, you can be directly promoted https://managementconsulted.com/consulting-salaries/consulting-salaries-for-2019-management-consulted/

I have close to 9 years of experience with technology consulting across India and the US with Deloitte US( I was hired at the india offices of Deloitte US). I have been admitted to Ivey business school for 2023 batch. Post MBA, I want to make a move to management consulting as that was one of the biggest driving factor for me to purse an MBA. From my research I gathered that getting into MBB is extremely difficult due to very few openings. What can I do to boost my chances of getting into MBB?
