Consulting

Is anyone familiar with Uber strategy roles and salary expectations? Applied for a Sr Associate role and the salary is ridiculously below expectations and what I earn now.

I got the same offer pretty recently but I don't have as much experience so it is actually pretty competitive for me

85k is like poverty line in SF. They must really be banking on people signing up for brand recognition and variable equity

It’s not even a joke; I used to work at Deloitte S&O, and our entry level analyst salary in SF (at the time 72.5K) was below median income, qualifying folks for subsidies and other tax breaks / govt. support.

What is the base, can you share?

Well the HR lady said a fair share of the compensation would be equity. But even with that and Uber’s likely IPO, the base still seems too low

And this is for a role that requires minimum of 5 years of experience. Very confused

Ya I am also interested. I had a recruiter reach out but I have also heard bad things about the culture

I heard it is toxic, a lot of people out from themselves. I get consulting can be bad but heard it is a whole new level of throw people under the bus.

This is for a Chicago based role FYI but agree that the salary is a joke

Don’t get sucked into the trap though in assuming that just because you’ve been a consultant for a few years you’re bound for lucrative exit opportunities. I think a lot of people find this out the hard way, but you don’t hear about it often because no one brags about not being hired as a big whig in industry like they just assumed they would. The reality is we aren’t always as valued in normal companies as we’d like to think (i.e. “yeah, but what have you *actually* done?”),
