I’m hoping you get multiple datapoints, feeling a little ballpark here. HCOL: 90 - 105k. I list this as I’m fairly confident on this range. LCOL: 65- 80k. Per above less confident. Id recommend narrowing down role and /or industry. This can help a ton

Associate 1. Cyber is a hot skillset that pays close to MC wages starting out compared to the rest of Risk Advisory which can range from 50k - 70k depending on area and COL

Probably highly dependent on industry, but you could use your current salary as a baseline and aim for at least that or set an amount for how much lower you’re willing to go (for example I’ve heard people accept a 10-15% pay cut for a 40 hour job). So I think around $120k base for 2 years post-undergrad is a good start.

SC1 - that’s why I said they can set a discount rate for the 40 hours expectation. I do know people in my class who were able to take a small pay cut on of 10-15% for types of jobs. To be fair, I don’t know how much Big4 salaries are but assumed they are in the same ballpark (have friends at S&/Parthenon who make about the same). McK also doesn’t adjust for COL, so they should take an additional discount if LCOL as well.

Dallas 4 YOE 110k 35-40 hours So 2 YoE is maybe 85-95k?
