First year PLs make this if they are rockstars. Many 2nd year PLs, and certainly most Principals

Rockstar PL1 (5th year post u/g or 3rd post MBA) or pretty good PL2. Base + bonus + retirement. Healthcare is free, but it’s harder to value that without considering individual circumstances, so I’m not including it.

S& you can get there in the top bonus tier as a second year manager. Or in your first year if you get promoted from a lower level with the 10-20% milestone bonus.


SVP or Director, depending on practice and prior experience/MBA


2nd or 3rd Year Manager / Senior Manager

Roughly 7-8 years out of school.


LinkedIn is my dream company to exit to!

1st full year as Manager


Busy first-year managers (not all offerings)


Killin me smalls. Lol. Sitting here waiting for someone to call about my application. 🙏🏼

manager (4-5 years out of MBA if base + bonus)


Likely a fourth or fifth year SM here or a fresh PMD

What all does all-in include?

At KPMG it will start at the director (3rd/4th yr) level but my guess is a relatively small % of directors make 300k. Surely a new MD makes that much.

Base, bonus, stock, 401k match

same as what D1 said... 4/5Th SM or MD (ACN strategy)

What do Mck folks think? First year AP? Maybe select rockstar EMs?

EM. AP would be higher (unless AA was bad)


Agree w SC1. I’m at a smaller boutique and we don’t have a formal campus hire program yet but our associate comp is +/- where the street is and bonuses were 100%+ across all performance buckets this year


Or lower level even depending on org


First year Strategy Senior Managers that crush it make that and definitely second year Senior Managers...this is strategy not other areas within ACN.

Are others seeing their work slow down? It’s been a pretty dramatic halt for me. I thought maybe it was a me problem, but others in my group admitted they are also slow. I’ve been consistently 110-120% utilized, but I’ve only billed 22 hours this month. I’m in fund formation.


My current utilization is 105% , and planning to take leave from 12 Dec to 23 Dec i.e will be back to office on 2nd Jan

I am asking this becoz it's my milestone year .
I am Up for promotion
How much will my utilization drop to ? Will it risk my milestone ?
Kindly advise
