Want to get into consulting, need your advice. I am at 1 YOE and make 100k in a chill job at State Farm as a Data Scientist. I want to get into consulting for the travel and experience but I want good pay maybe more than 120k and interesting projects. What would be the best consulting company for me?

For 1 YOE, you would only make that amount as MBB. Also, expect your workload to 2-3X

What’s 35000? Not following there. Yes T2 prices lower. And while I’m not comparing a place like LEK to McK, there are different billing models. We undercut partially bc we have limited travel and don’t bill thousands more for hotel rooms and airfare. While billing is a good metric it’s not necessarily as simple as you’re making it out to be. And btw I’m almost positive we pay more at post MBA level and above. Again, McK is the more prestigious firm but given this thread is sorta on comp…

Do you know what range? 100k plus ? Is 120-150k feasible? With say 2yoe and Masters?

Lol good luck “chill” job as a consultant? We’re a service industry. Client above everything. Jk but it’s a demanding gig

I didn't say I wanted a chill job. I said I have one
