EAs (Executive Assistants) on Fishbowl

What's the base salary for a Senior EA at your company? I am trying to figure out this "market value" bit.

In the c-suite, depending on title, the minimum I’d accept would be no less than $90k with 15 vacay days.

Of course it depends on location, experience, and conditions when someone is hired but I’d say between $65-75k to start. U.S. here, major city with medium COL.

I’m thinking closer to 90k, at least in the Northeast.

Yeah that pays about $20k more in base range than consulting.

It varies on location.... I don’t know if people even come in as Newly hired Sr. EAs at BCG. The process to get promoted to senior EA is seriously dumb. There is like a committee of 5 people who vote on it, and none of these people work with you or have any idea of what a day in the life looks like. My best guess for newly promoted Sr EA at BCG is 70-80k depending on location.

So if you work for 5 partners under different entries what would the salary?

WOW at EY we easily get anywhere from 5-7 Partners on our desk. I have had as many as 11 at one point!

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
