I'm in federal and have this lifestyle 🤔

like

At this point in my life there is no amount of money you could pay me to go back to industry. I consider those my "lost" years- so aimless, so bored, so stagnant

What traveling perks? Fucking points, free stays, upgrades, who gives a shit, I look at my status be it hotel, airline, whatever and all I see is tons of time wasted sitting in a plane staying at a hotel away from what I care about. Traveling sucks balls

like

Already took a 20K pay cut to be in federal government. Making money is nothing if you don't have time and will to spend it.

like

Current base is 200K. I would leave for more money :) joking aside, I'd move in for 180 with great flexibility

like

220 base, not taking a pay cut. I travel in my own time zone 90% though which makes it easier

like

D4, I'm with you. Came to consulting for traveling perks and ended up doing 2 hrs commute. Fml

like

76. 55 if I loved the new job, 60 if I liked it.

like

Up to 20%

Would say that there is also many false assumptions around comes consulting

Deloitte 1 what level are you?

That sounds dreadful

There's a false assumption that industry = more work / life flexibility. I've worked in both industry and consulting, and while it depends, only see all of my friends at SM / VP level and above killing it.

See it as just the opposite. A way better quality of life industry and you have the time to become a true expert. I would also take a 20% cut.

Senior manager

Like D2, this is my experience in federal. I've been spoiled and I'm not sure if I'd have lasted this long doing the traditional consulting lifestyle

I took a 10k hit to take this "traveling" consulting job and ended up on a local long term project

That's already my work situation 😎

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
