A SA1 with MBA starts around $135 - 145K, a non-MBA manager starts at $120K. I believe an MBA manager is $160Kish.

I’m at pwc in a tier 2 city. Here’s where I was at as an MBA campus hire: SA1: 135k SA2/3: $140k M1: $154k

It’s much more than 5 to 10k.

Lolzzzz you’re way off

EY2, correct, it's not a huge jump in salary from SA3 to M1. And OP, the gap is only for core / target school MBAs. But yes, it does exist.

The non mba cohort is very upsetting to me. If you grew up in firm generally you perform fairly well by the time you get to m1. 30k is such a stark difference... especially given how much extra work and stress this level is

Like 3 to 4 $

SA1 are you saying from SA1 to manager1 there’s only a 15k bump?

SA 1.. so there is $40k difference between m1 MBA vs non MBA, that’s sounds like a lot.

SA1.. do you know what the D1 comp is, I thought that started at 175-180.

Also heard that the comp levels out at D1. Is that true?

Yes. ^

OP, you're correct, it's around $180K. However, I'm not sure what's going to happen with the intro of SM. Currently salaries converge at D1 but that may change with the introduction of SM.

Hopefully ^

SA1 maybe I read your post wrong, but you said MBA SA1 comes in at 135-145k, not SA3. I would agree SA3 is ranging 135k - 145k, but not SA1

10 years ago I made 128k as a manager in Chi town

And with no MBA

M2, I completely agree. However, it's really just a way for the firm to save $. They have to pay MBA new hires competitive pay but they can lowball the internal promotes and save some $ in the process. And I say this as someone who's currently a sponsored MBA student.

M2. It’s a marathon not a sprint and you have a massive network advantage at the firm over the MBA hires. Now if the goal was to never make it to partner then should probably have hopped around collecting raises or getting an MBA after just a few years
