Switched from consulting (1.5 YOE) into a more technical role but now I’m at the same level as new grads. Still higher paid than consulting. Did I make a wrong move taking a step down?

No. 1.5 YOE over the undergrads is not too much. Just enjoy your new role and don’t worry about that! 5 yrs down the line the extra 1.5 yrs is not differential. Hope that helps

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!
