OP - not sure what the typical digital salaries are. But I moved from a 190 based from my previous company to a 220 base at EY. Did not have to negotiate. I have 10 years of consulting + industry experience. Work in healthcare, though. My friend came in at 190k on the west coast. So shouldn’t hurt to push, but if you’re content, I would sign at 180k too. Hope this helps!

What firm?

How experienced?

Pretty solid!

At kpmg that's the high end of band for mgr. but get the most you can

Yes only group that might be higher is one of the Strategy groups (since MBA)

Base or w bonus?

Seems on average, slightly lower if you’re experienced. But depends on what practice / east coast city you’re at. My colleague and I moved over to EY last year and we both got significantly higher offers for their M&A practice. Not sure if it was a function of need or anything else! But 180k is solid too!

Thank you all for your help. Some additional info: almost 14 yrs of exp (mostly industry), digital consulting for one of the B4, 180 is base only. Trying to get a sense of how aggressively I should negotiate (e.g., would 190-200 base be doable or completely unrealistic?).

Thank you, EY3! Manager level, right?

Yes, Manager level.

Op, I know the high point of the band for this position west coast based is 206k,

Are we talking DC expensive or NYC expensive?

I don’t think there are any KPMG managers in mc who making over 180k base.

Yes, FYI at least parts of Accenture don’t vary pay by location

Yes, pretty much top of manager band for PwC and Deloitte. Pushing into Sr Manager $$ at other firms which may have better bonus potential.

Damn I’m a manager in M&A and make 110k 😑

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
