Generally speaking, anywhere from 180-230


Highly varies. No one joins consulting for the bonus. Go work in industry if you want a big bonus. But again, generally speaking, could be 5%-17% based on overall firm performance + your performance.

SM at PwC is not the same level as SM at Deloitte. So which firm is it?


PwC Directors (which is same as Deloitte SM) comp can go up to $280K + 30% bonus.


M1’s sample distribution is legit, I’d add it’s skewed to to right tho


No there are some outliers making more

Appreciate the input.
