Yea. Totally reasonable. On average you should expect about 10% raises at a top tier consulting firm.

So you’re saying you have 2 months total experience and you expect them to give you a 5k salary bump? Definitely not reasonable.

Sorry, I should have specified. My annual review won’t be until next August, so that’s what I was curious about.

Honestly a 5k bump after a year sounds like you’re getting screwed

What’s the normal bump?

What firm

Sounds like big4
