Don't know much about them so my opinion doesn't mean much, but I think they are viewed as second tier banks in the US

Can only speak for SG's markets: extremely French (literally >80% on the floor) so can go a while w/o hearing English, good platforms for accessing research for development, known for low pay, tend to see good exit opps to other banks/HFs as they're very good at the few areas that they're good at (EQD, EMFX, structured products)

Pretty shit across the board and low pay

I've heard that you still get the mandatory 1/2 weeks off even in the US tho!

2 weeks mandatory vacation every year for everyone doesn't suck. Team spirit is good. Pay is below average, but you can stick around as long as you want if you are decent performer.

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!
