If you had the TS before going to D, you’re underpaid by $20k

Yeah that's really low. I left D as a GPS consultant and a TS in hand, making 98K base. Experienced hire. Moved to SC at Guidehouse and make $130 base.

2 in consulting, 5 years total when i moved to GH

OP, I was at 125 a few years back at GPS, same situation as you including clearance. Had gotten 1 ratings the previous two years. Ended up exiting to industry. GPS managers work as hard as commercial SMs in my exp (client sales, relationships, hours, etc), and get paid 50-100k less; it is the worst deal in consulting.

I just got promoted to M and I’m only making 112K now as a GPS SC so I really don’t have high hopes for my raise and bonus this year especially after COVID. 😂

I’m a C in commercial I graduated undergrad with no relevant experience in 2017 and am at $125. It is absurd you’re making 130. Leave and find better they won’t bring you up to par.

You are a Manager and not an Senior Consultant?

like

Yes

You get what you can leverage and what a hiring manager can afford. You’re at the lower end of the bracket- which isn’t a bad thing (not awesome). You can always get more to leave, but not worth leaving until you hit a promotion ceiling (can you get to Senior Manager?)

I’m also a M at Deloitte in GPS making 130 base (2nd year M), but I don’t have a clearance. Had to fight for a mid year salary adjustment just to get to 130. I don’t know what kind of financial plus the clearance usually gets folks, but you’re definitely not outside the band for a non-cleared M in Deloitte GPS.

like

D doesn’t pay well for people coming in with clearances.

Towards the lower end of the GPS M band--while I was at D a while back, I think the band was ~$120-170k, cleared or uncleared.

Oof that's low

It depends on a lot of factors. For you it could be that at the time you came in the client labor rates were low meaning they brought you in low. And they may not have been able to bring you in higher at that time. Remember that it's also about your skills and experience not the clearance alone. Last a year or two ago folk with clearances were bumped 30 to 50k leaving Deloitte. Again that was market based as it was difficult to find cleared folk at that time. These folk went to small companies which means less stability and no bench. They also have a much lower overhead that means they can offer higher salaries. The fact that they were at Deloitte also contributed to that bump.

Did you negotiate your signing bonus ?

$140k (starting base) M GPS cyber. $10k signing bonus

If you have a TS you better be making as little as $150k especially being an M.

Is it just me or are there entirely too many people in Business Services, specifically TC’s, who are just folks from client service that don’t want to deal with hours and travel anymore but have no formal training in the Business Services function they transition to? It seems to me very few TC’s are professionals in HR with any background, training or certifications in HR.
