Hi, I’m a SM at a niche firm (3,500 employees, 0.8B revenue) about to make Director this year. Current pay is $160K before taxes. Been with the firm ten years. Thoughts on pursuing something within Periscope by McKinsey? $20M revenue, 100 people.. Even though the pay is subpar compared to McK & Co, are benefits good and does Periscope still come under the McK banner? Newbie here and would appreciate any and all inputs. Thank you. McKinsey & Company Periscope

I’m confused: why is the pay at McK “subpar” compared to McK? Periscope may be a solutions role, which do have a different comp structure than integrative consulting roles, but it’s different work and certainly still well-paid.

MC1 - thanks, just got off the phone with the recruiter. She only has a client success manager role open <> EM, she shared a comp range which I will be honest seemed low? - $180-190K total comp (base + bonus)...

Bump
