If you have some credibility banked internally, I would find a partner who’s interested in letting you build it at KPMG. (Or hire me to do it, I’ve already built a brand strategy consulting practice at an agency that didn’t have one.)

The team's strategy is moving in a different direction sadly... if I want to work in that space moving elsewhere is the only option really

Are you in the UK? Prophet is not a salary cut compared to big 4.

Personally think Horizon Next has great strategy & planning teams and are very competitive when it comes to pay. Might be lower than consulting of course by the higher levels do get paid very well since they want to keep their talent with knowledge of their proprietary analytics models

I'm applying for a job and there's a line item where they ask for desired compensation. Since the job posting doesn't include one & that role in particular doesn't appear on Glassdoor, is it ok to write something like "negotiable" or "based on budget allocated for this position"? Or should I just include a range? I don't want to ruin a chance at a higher salary range by selling myself short off the bat. I haven't applied to jobs in years so any advice you all could provide would be appreciated!
