Bonus is better than ours but I wouldn’t consider them on par with Acn Strategy anymore. Brand has been diluted significantly in the past 3 years

M1 can you even recruit into Monitor specifically these days though? Thought you would just come in to “S&O” or whatever it’s called now

I'm not too familiar with D, but I believe you're right. EY is doing the same thing with Parthenon I believe.

3rd year manager. $300K base + bonus. ~$15K firm contribution to retirement plan. I'd love to see Acn strategy or any of the other firms mentioned in this thread beat that.

S2 were you homegrown or exp hire? Is that higher than MBB?

S2 that’s not true. Base for level 3 managers at S& is around $200K + 30-40% bonuses Director range at S& is between $220K to $250K + 50-70% bonus

A2 - joined after MBA. This is comparable to MBB before the salary increases. Expectation is that we'll match their comp starting the new fiscal year. Slalom 1 - I don't think you have access to my W2, do you? Also, Manager bonus can go all the way up to 54%.

S&2 quoted $300k which includes both base and top rated bonus. Slalom1 I think you interpreted that figure as base only

Top rated bonus is hardly given...we all know how many get it...

Long story short: I work for a small healthcare consulting firm. Since COVID, I was going to the office once a week, every Wednesday. Today, I have put on my 2 weeks because I accepted an offer from a big 4. During my last 2 weeks, I had planned to see my family for the first week, and go to the office on my final week. Also today, my boss asks me to come in the office everyday next week. Should I say I don’t feel comfortable and just don’t go?What’s the worst it happen? Get fired lol

I don't want to come off as needy, leech, or greedy. General curiosity how I could build a fraction of what he has. (Not family inheritance) All approaches/ideas are welcome
