Sign-on Bonus range for a ~5th yr partner level? Context: I left consulting as a Partner. Now recruited back to a Partner position because of my combo operator+consulting experience (I have significant cash and equity I’ll be walking away from). Thank you.

I wrote $500K. But it would likely vest over 2 years. Someone laughed, but I was serious based on 5 years as a EQUITY partner plus your industry experience. Thought you were joining BCG as a Senior Partner/Managing Director. If you were BCG before and now joining McK or Bain as a Director/Senior Partner, then that number still holds. If joining another firm, then its likely far too high. But importantly, also pay attention to the comp guarantee—that’s even more important than the signing bonus. And also how long is the comp guarantee? 1, 2, or 3 years?

I am in the process as a 6th year partner transitioning between two firms. I have agreed a $300k sign on with my new firm to pay the tax on that too. So circa $540/600k

Thank you

Another data point: I’m accepting a direct admit MD (non-equity partner) role and receiving a $150k sign-on. Sounds like you should be higher than that.

Actual MDP, or ‘Partner’? I doubt you’re really walking away from that much, otherwise you wouldn’t be doing it. My guess is <$50k

I was at BCG when they made the change, and was briefly a fake partner.

True story, they changed it because McK had changed AP from “Associate Principal” to “Associate Partner” and were telling clients that they would have “4 partners” working on a project when it was really 1 partner and 3 APs.

Seems a few points of clarification may help:
1) I am considering accepting an experienced equity partner role (pick your favorite top label) at a large consulting firm.
2) I once worked as a Partner at a different well known consulting firm BUT now, for many years have been a senior industry exec
3) I am leaving meaningful unvested equity, earned bonus, and cost of exercising vested equity. This info is just for context, not going to debate it as the amount is above what I would expect even a generous signing bonus to cover.
4) My acceptance wont be based on the sign-on, its just one part of an offer that I’m seeking input on from fellow FISH Partners.
5) I know the sign on will be 6 figures but that is a $900k range, so am seeking input for reference. Someone wrote $1M, I’ll take that as a joke. Someone wrote 500k, I’ll assume that is a serious comment. Regardless, would be great to have serious responses. (I wrote this in the partner forum vs comp forum so responses would be legit given the role.)
Thx

Thank u. Definitely helpful.
