EM1, I’m gonna assume you’re not aware that principals and partners are essentially the same thing at KPMG. You can’t be a partner if you don’t have a CPA at an accounting firm, hence the term “principal.” Principals are referred as partners here. But hey, what do I know?

Y'all know that a "principal" at BCG is the big 4 SM/Director equivalent, not PPMD, correct?

There are many levels of partner.

The prototypical partner that we like to think about with regards to comp has survived and been around 6-10 years (tough to do) and likely makes 700-1m depending on how many shares they have.

New partners bring in a lot less 400-600.

These of course depend on firm, what you’re selling, performance, etc.

I’m sure the answer OP is looking for is a lot more nuanced and dependent on what level he/she would enter at

smart

Upper end is 500k... for principals according to other bowl
KPMG1 the fact that you put „partner/principal“ into one league tells us all quite a lot. Good that you work for KPMG then I suppose ;-)

Lateral move folks. Principal to BCG principal which is not the same thing as Partner at BCG. principal at BCG is the level right below partner.

@PWC2- if that were the case I wouldn’t ask. Other threads disclosed for other levels, not principal.

BCG1 - that was not necessary - OP - definitely try it, if you are good you will get the job no matter what and coming from a boutique it will definitely also add a lot to your personal satisfaction and pride working for a top tier firm trust me.
So all the best for the process from my side

@OP, it's worth your while. Pay is definitely competitive if not better than what's estimated here. There also has to be something said about the culture and ways of working at BCG that is difficult to beat by any other firm. We've had lots of lateral hires that can attest to that. I'm sure you'll have a chance to speak to them if you get an offer - best if luck!

For what it's worth, my offer as an experienced principal at BCG was exactly the same as my current comp at ATK/OW (within 5k)

Senior Associate considering lateraling to a regional firm as a partner. I have three major clients that would come with me and the regional firm is basically hiring me at the reccomendation of one of those clients. Pay is a lower base (technically a draw on future distributions) but total comp would be about 200k more than I make now. New firm seems great but I am wondering if I am missing something. What would you ask if you were in my shoes?
