Cap1, what business unit are you in? Most I know still get bonuses, but A/B bands don’t get bonuses. I agree that our pay and raises can’t compete with the others mentioned though.

If you include benefits the big firms will lag. They tend to be more cash comp focused. Some people also see work life as a benefit. So it may be worth more to work 50 hours a week and earn a salary of $100K than to work 70 hours and earn $115K.

I think the difference in hrs sounds close, but the pay gap is much greater than 15%.

Our pay increases are fastest because we have direct out of undergrad -> EM...you could make partner before 30 if you wanted. Our perks are worse than BCGs though (1st class flights for them oh any flight >1 hr, our is >3.5 hrs). Food wise we get $100 a day while I’ve heard there is no limit really for them

MBB are all similar and first by a significant margin, big 4 same tier but a clear step behind Source: interned at big 4 strategy, MBB full time

PwC is fantastic. They treat me very well and I like what I'm working on. I've heard okay things about Deloitte, but it's digital side is apparently very slow to innovate. EY and KPMG aren't in the same realm.

In Germany, OW is second only to Bain (like a few 100€ less) for junior roles. Don‘t know for more senior roles but heard it gets surpassed by MBB

I would recommend steering away from Grant Thornton, pay is below market value and culture has changed significantly, it's like you have to work like the big 4 without the added benefits.

Pay varies greatly across different practices. My base is sub 100k for the Associate title with a PhD degree in a major NA office. Maybe because of my 0 year of exp though.
