I got an offer from Marcum LLP as a first year assurance associate in the Bay Area - is it typical to be paid hourly? It says I’m eligible for overtime. Also curious what typical starting salary should be in the Bay Area?

Marcum is one of the few national firms that pays overtime in California, so no it’s not typical. You can expect to make $90k as a first year associate with the overtime earnings, which is a huge pro. The con is, well it’s Marcum. Big 4 atmosphere without the prestige.

Since it's hourly and not a salary I think under 35k. Effective January 1, 2020, employees must earn at least $684 per week ($35,568/year), receive a salary, and perform particular duties (as defined by the FLSA) to be considered exempt from overtime requirements under federal guidelines.

The offer is for 62k

Not sure if my question will make sense but I am really curious. When it comes to salaries in the consulting world, do we end up reaching a peak in our base? And then must rely on bonuses for increases in total payout? I am curious because it seems like there are only about 5-8 official career ladder steps. I’m also curious to understand what salary trajectories are over time especially for people who have started in consulting and have basically never left this career path for 10-20 years.
