Consulting

Just came back to Advisory TC from Tour of Duty in IFS. Concerned my SA2 salary is below that of Advisory, since CRT took place during tour. How should I approach with HR?

We use a cohort model. If you didn’t move up a level then not much you can do

you are on par with all the SA2s in advisory, it doesnt matter what competitors pay...not sure what is the point of going to HR

Cohort model keeps everyone in line but also prevents the plebs from asking for more money when they have offers from other firms 😉. It’s more for the firm to accurately predict outflows of cash for salary than benefitting the employees

@pwc1 thanks for confirming I'm at appropriate level. Shifted the conversation in my last comment in terms of what competition is paying to keep thread valuable...

OP, you are within the range for someone with SA2 experience at competitors. Are there some making more? Sure. Are there some making less? Yes.

PARTNERS: two questions —1. If you see an associate has really low hours for the month, do you imagine them chillen on a beach somewhere or do you consider they probably spent most of their days sitting in front of the computer being “available”? 2. If you send an associate a random e-mail on a weekend like “Can you pull X and send to Y”, would you get annoyed if they responded saying they weren’t by a comp or would you consider it reasonable that they wouldn’t be by a comp on a weekend?

Anyone else think companies have convinced us salary is a taboo topic only to help the top get away with unequal pay. base salary should be standardized and bonuses depend on performance (chargeable hours, project reviews, hours charged to internal codes).

I have seven years' experience in executive search (based in APAC but have worked on global roles) and want to leave the industry for either an in-house talent role or a consulting firm. I haven't had much luck when I've applied for internal roles in the past. Do I have any chance at getting an in-house talent acquisition role, or is an executive search skill set just regarded as too weird/not the right fit for internal talent teams?

I am a personal injury defense attorney and I’ve never done plaintiff’s work. I have a case where I suspect the plaintiff is malingering and exaggerating his injuries. The plaintiffs attorney has sent me multiple demands for $3 million dollars and basically begged me to respond with some offer. I’ve told him the truth - my client has no interest in trying to settle if his demand remains about twenty times higher than the actual worst case (for us) jury verdict. More in comments...
