Consulting

I just finished my third year as a business technology analyst in Deloitte’s Analytics and Cognitive Consulting. I’m only making $55k with no bonus. Should I leave? Do market adjustments happen?

The easiest way for a market adjustment is to go to the market and get an adjustment. (Look for opportunities elsewhere)

Whaaaat? Are you up for a promotion in the very near future? If yes, get a market competitive rate or get out. If no, get out. $55k is incredibly low for any consultant position, let alone 3 years of experience :/

Also 3 years as an analyst when normal is 2? Something is not adding up here. We dont have the full story

This sounds low. Accenture pays analysts at the entry level $90k+. Look around for other opportunities.

PWC 1— it all depends on the business case. 6 years ago, I had an offer from ACN for $120k at a consultant level.

Then def have a comp discussion with your competency lead PPD. 3k of raises in three years seems out of line with market and standard progression of the job. Not to mention my understanding is that BTAs tend to be well paid anyway. My first year raise was 3k by itself. Are you underperforming (rhetorical)? Something isn't right about this.

That’s ridiculously low for the US. You should request a comp discussion the very least

Maybe he’s a feb hire. Feb hires take pretty much 3 years (2.7 years) to get promoted

That’s below the Consultant level midpoint...unless your group doesn’t have the BA level?

Really depends on your region too. Are you outside of the US? In Canada BTAs start in high 50s/low 60s

OP, are you a BTA or were you hired into the UDSC or PDM career models as a BTA equivalent? If either of the latter, I’d try to switch to the traditional model.

OP at face value it seems very low but you need to provide more facts for us to tell you whether that salary is fine.

Hey guys! I’m an Audit supervisor at RSM (4.5 years of experience) and got an opportunity for turnaround and restructuring at a mid tier consulting firm. They are extending an offer as an Associate and the promotion timeline is 1 year. I’m concerned as to how this would look on my resume - Supervisor in Audit to Associate in consulting.

I'm kicking myself--I've got a number of side gigs, one in particular that I've been running since 2016. I'm not a marketing guy, so I hired a small box ad firm to run my marketing for about 1.5 years and had a -3x marketing ROI during that timeframe, just dumping money down the drain. Fired them in the spring and started marketing it myself and have been seeing a so far scalable ~2-2.5x marketing ROI since I started experimenting with my marketing budget in June. (Cont)

Looking for any and all ideas! I will be teaching in a Middle School Autism classroom. This is very different from what I did last year and will be even more so with COVID. I am trying to plan for my students each having their own work area. How are people planning to keep student materials separated by their own areas? What type of bins, shelves, containers are you planning to use? Also if you have any other ideas for this year let me know! Thank you 😊
