For an SC, the threshold is basically 90% utilization on a monthly basis. So you get paid an extra hourly rate for each billable hour over that threshold. Def not as lucrative as A&M, but nice when are working longer hours and get some additional comp for it

That is definitely a nice perk. What hours per month do you guys use for 100% utilization? Any insight on typical base rate comp (MCOL city) and the extra hourly rate for the qualifying billing amounts?

I wouldn’t want to work for a public company

Pretty sure A&M bonus can be much higher than what FTI is offering

Why didn’t you ask the recruiter

Second this, skip the external recruiter. A&M recruiting staff are super responsive. Senior associate base is still 120
