Compensation

What does chief of staff do? Is this a similar role to a senior consultant? And how much they make?

Could be as strategic as an executive’s right hand person who is very close to the leadership team, helps the executive run special projects and initiatives, has influence over others, etc. Also could be a more junior role that takes care of operational things so the executive can focus on other things. Recommend that if you’re looking into a chief of staff role, have a discussion on what they are looking for this role to do.

I’ve see a lot of chief of staffs get into a new c-suite title at the company. They followed a rising star exec who then eventually became ceo. And then the ceo promoted his cheief of staff to be chief human resource officer or some other title. Chief of staffs to ceo are often on the management committee and can make bank

Also, keep in mind that unlike many other industry roles, you’re directly tied to the exec. If they do well, you’ll do well. But if they aren’t positioned well in the company, lack political capital, etc, then your career at the company is at risk as well. As D1 suggested above, it’s critical to have some serious conversations with the exec before deciding. But good luck — these can be super awesome roles!

It’s basically a CEO’s right hand man. I only know of the COS role at an University since I was the graduate assistant within the President’s Office. Basically the COS would clean up all the shit for the Pres if the Pres wasn’t available. You’re not on call 24/7 but I’m suspecting in the corporate setting you are. It’s honestly exhausting and I wouldn’t do it

Actually it’s also an internal role with Deloitte services, sometimes called a CAM. You are essentially the right had support person for an Account or Offering Portfolio LT

CAM and COS are NOT the same thing... CAM are junior level account specific resources who are tied to big accounts. COS are more like the COO of either an Industry/Sector/OPL/Offering.

Nonsense. I’ve worked with 2 CAMs, both SM

an SM WOULD BE junior level to our PPMD LCSPs, LCP, etc... apologies if that could be interpreted as junior staff as that was not the intention. CAM is junior level for account facing roles.
