Data points I’ve seen for director total comp is in the 350-600 range. Just a guess here but knowing how Alix looks at comp you can negotiate your base higher but it’ll just lower your bonus on the back end

A&M also pays well so make sure our offer is higher than your current. There’s a huge band at Director level and our firm should be willing to go a bit higher. You should think of it in terms of TC. Base is negotiable but that also means they will deduct it from your bonus.

For your experience level, I would say $4-450 TC. Base around $300. Is this aligned with your expectations? Be aware that bonuses are paid out in december and will be prorated for the calendar year based on start date...so negotiate a signing bonus accordingly.

Depends on how valuable your skills are in the current market / how much they want you. Your TC should be higher than A&M, more predictable/stable with a heavier emphasis in base vs bonus.

You should look for total comp around 400-500k.

I’ve heard annual raises are lower (4-5%) once you are around $400k so take that into account as well (may not matter if offer is much higher than current).

Q for Deniz / leadership: I just gave RTR to offshore resource and now have less than $25 left which will just go to waste. If we are working with them on almost every project, why penalize our RTR

Will most of us (big 4 employees) be in at least the 200k+ salary range once we hit our late 40s and early 50s? I know that MOST of us won't stay with our firms, but does that mean we stagnate?

Does leadership know when you google “Guidehouse” the first thing that pops up is a grill in MD. Also, will a free soda (after the purchase of a brisket sandwich) be a part of our bonus this year?
