If you work at PwC, you have access to the salary sheet in the PwC bowl. DS pay is identical to S& pay. Promotion timing is the same. I like to think we compare very favorably against the LEKs of the world. MBB is a different value proposition at a different price point, but our work is every bit as good (and much of our leadership came from MBB) and we beat MBB fairly regularly (and they beat us too). The group is small enough that you won’t really align to an industry or vertical as an A/SA, so identifying a “best” practice isn’t really relevant at that level.

Thank you! When do you begin to think / start aligning to a vertical? How has DS fared during and post-covid? I heard there was a lot of work and that there is a need to recruit a lot. Is there truth to that?

Yea you can ask HR for the cohort comp spreadsheet, it’s easily accessible.

The problem with starting a commercial diligence practice late is that MBB is already entrenched with cushy retainer agreements. Tough to break in if all the PE firms have contracted, go-to consultants.

On my current deal, we pitched against mck, just mck n us. We won some n lost some.

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
