Consulting

I am M2 in the south east region, my current base pay is $118,000 and I received a 6% bonus last year. Moving to M3 this year what should I expect in terms of salary? Share your thoughts please.

I literally don't understand why you stay in consulting. So many better jobs, less travel and less stress with comparable or better money.

Wow. OP, u r seriously underpaid. I knew KPMG underpaid their employees, but not by this much. I guess it's different by groups. Because I also know Director level at KPMG is at $260k+, which is comparable to strategy firms at that level

Also any thoughts on how much more I should get as an M3 later this year?

@K - if you were a campus hire, a huge gap is title. Because K doesn't have the analyst role, you came in a consultant and have three promotions, but none of the years experience. You're in the same boat as most of D Advisory. You should probably be closer to 180 as an M3.

180 is a bit high... M3 should be around 150-160 base.

@S&1, please tell me what director you know at K that is at $260k+... they have to be on the verge of MD or are a specialist in a high growth area.

You're missing group/function within each of the firms that can provide variability. Additionally, the starting position - lowest at firm, and whether or not the people subtitling information are campus or experienced hires.

Op "advisory" is not at all enough info to determine the fairness of your salary

Considering the fact that MBAs start in the 120-130 range a the SC/SA level, you're underpaid by a lot. That salary, btw, is a national salary.

@P1 and M1- the pay is for director in KPMG M&A . Their bonus rate is much lower than S& though.
