Don’t agree with McK 1 here. Sounds about normal comp, if you compare with Big4, Acc or smaller firms. For an SC it’s even quite decent. Company car is worth 10k, so given there are no other benefits like pension, you land at 90+.

Sounds about right for IT implementation if you ask me. Can’t compare to MBB etc

Yeah seems a bit low. 80k is like possible as an Engineering graduate... However, depends heavily on your location and industry. I have friends that started post MBA in Berlin for 75k as well after being at Bain for 3years. As a reference: McK pays around 105k base + 10k bonus for Post-MBA.

Yes agree that decent for Germany across big4 and similar.
