First time working at a big holding company agency in years. Forgot how much you can get paid to create so little value.

If it makes you feel any better, all the staff below you know you add no value. As do several of your peers.

Haha, we’ve all been there. Luckily it’s just a freelance gig.

I think the OP might be referring to the ratio of deliverables to client investment. Having been at both big and indie agencies, I can tell you the indie agencies are producing far more work for a client’s budget than the big ones. Probably also why they’re swamped with clients while the general theme on here from holding company folks is that they’re losing jobs right and left.

But, you’re creating value for shareholders indirectly. That’s all that’s important to a publicly traded company. Revenue which creates value. Creative output, awards and all that shit doesn’t matter to them. It’s the system. It won’t change. Just do your best and don’t care too much because then that’s when you get sacked

Curious about the number of people on here that make $250k+. I see the absurd compensation numbers that get thrown around on the consulting bowl as if $250k is the new $100k and I’m beginning to wonder if the data is skewed between whites and blacks? I’m not seeing these sort of compensation numbers in my circles. Am I grossly underpaid? For reference, I’m a Top 10 MBA, big 4, SM 2 @ $195 base and ~40k bonus.

How does one get into strategy / mgmt consulting without having an MBA? Are mgmt consulting jobs only reserved for MBA grads? I feel like I have great ideas that I could put forth and potentially do a good job as a mgmt consultant but I come from an accounting/tax technology background (CPA).. would I just never be relevant for a consulting role unless I got an MBA?
