I know for a fact a lot of management consulted #’s are wrong or outdated, looking for something a little more up to date

I’ve followed management consulted’s comp thread since 2011. US numbers for major firms are always very close to accurate and I’ve seen them verified time again on this app, in recruiting, by friends, etc.

If you're just looking to benchmark then management consulted numbers should be fine. Understand that the numbers are not 100% accurate but neither are any benchmarks I've ever seen. Everything is directional, welcome to consulting.

Lol. Why? If you’re coming in from a target school, you have no negotiating power. Just look it up and call it a day.

Everytime I think about work and how I can't even make a strong case for myself for a promotion I get upset. I'm literally pissed that I'm past a year mark and have yet to learn anything new since month 2. I've researched and taught myself as much as I could but many things are "learn on the job" type skills and so nothing. And yes, I've constantly asked throughout this entire year yet nothing has happened only promises that its coming soon or I'll be included in upcoming xyz.
