What does a manager with 8-10 years in Big 4 consulting experience (5-6 years in FSI) make in the market today?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people.

Thoughts?
I’m currently working as a design consultant at a big 4 & it’s my first job as a designer. I’m doing a lot of strategy work and haven’t done any design work at all. Although I want to find a new job, I don’t have any design experience to add to my portfolio to be competitive in recruitment. I’d love to get some advice from people who hired consultants or were once consultants but now working at agency or in-house on how to market yourself during recruitment.
