Great question, but it’s hard to baseline without more information. Completely depends on... 1) Your firm (MBB vs. Big 4) 2) Your practice (Strategy vs. Risk Consulting) 3) Your position (Consultant vs. Senior Consultant) 4) Your location (New York vs. Charlotte) If you provide more clarity, I’m sure you’ll get a better answer.

Depends, how good you are 😂

90k (NYC)

Starting 3rd year as an associate 3, not as a senior. Some ppl make senior after 2 years so they would be starting at 107k in their 3rd year

Thank you KPMG 2! 1) Big 4 2) Finance Consulting 3) Just to be promoted to Senior Consultant (but only second level) key is after 2 years 4) Philadelphia

Pushing six figures isn’t unreasonable in a market like Philadelphia... I would think >$90k should be expected
