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.

There are other variables to consider in a total compensation package. In the NE base salary for is is $80-93K, but we get paid OT after 35 hours, start with 19 PTO days, get (I think) 12% into our 401(k) and a host of other benefits. In previous jobs I was salaried no matter if I worked 40 or 75 hours week (and the expectation was 50). I make about $20K in overtime, which moves it closer to other industries but not quite as much as PE or other Finance gigs. I have more control over work/life balance, which is very important to me. Don’t know if that’s McK culture or me being older and wise enough to stand my ground on it, but the culture (obviously with some exceptions) is set up to support it.

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

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

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.

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

Work for 5 partners their directors, managers and staff being capped at 84,000 in New York. It's ridiculous and will be fighting as usual for more money. EA raises 3 %. 🤑

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.

6 figure salary language: I know we are still in a world where saying 6 figure salary means something, but people also said 6 figure salary decades ago when it was more than double its value today, and may have even used the terminology when it was worth many times its value today (I don’t have the full history on when it first became popular terminology.). Do we see the terminology “6 figure salary,” used in esteemed terms, going away any time soon?
