Would suggest posting this in Chicago consulting bowl. But personal opinion is it’s MCOL

MCOL sounds right. Tier 2 according to PwC

MCOL for sure

It sorta depends on how many tiers you are making; if you put NY and Bay Area in VHCOL, I’d consider Chicago as HCOL

Mcol

It's is not HCOL. At Accenture it's tier 3 out of 4

15 YOE doing what?

Thanks SM1

Compared to other major/significant cities it is definitely a MCOL. A person can live reasonably well here on 50k.

HCOL is only 3 cities; NY, LA, SF.

Yea high cost of living due to inflation doesn’t make a city suddenly HCOL. Most cities are at that point now. By tier in how their cost structured into paybands, it’s those 3. DC and Boston are Tier 2.
