Right, but you should be making the profit off large tech projects to make up for it. That doesn’t excuse not paying strategy people appropriately.

It’s including average bonus, highest bonus could get to 340

1st year M in Chicago at $155k base here. With target bonus, stock plan, and 401k match that’s another 15-20%. Analytics skill set so maybe a bit higher than classic MC but this is lower than Accenture Strategy

Thanks! Want to be clear I’m specifically asking about strategy, where most people have MBAs

I believe 189k base for S&.

What’s the average bonus? And is this first year manager?

New to consulting, but it seems like utilization targets really only function to incentivize folks to avoid the bench. In terms of billing actuals, isn’t everybody better off if you just bill 40/45/whatever your target is? Better forecasting and budgeting (good for project lead), client paid for hours so we charge for them (good for partner), peace of mind for hitting utilization target (good for consultant who doesn’t have to worry as much about hitting target). Am I missing something here?

generally speaking, do government agencies actually demand more from you if you’re in a higher vs. a lower salary tier/division e.g., I vs. II, II vs. III, III vs. IV, etc.?

Hi everyone. I have 2.5 years of experience: one year as an entry level data scientist out of undergrad in industry. Then 1.5 years in data science consulting. I’m currently at 120k base salary in Chicago. I don’t think my current firm is right for me / the projects I’ve come across do not feel all that innovative and many are just vaporware. What is the right next move for me without sacrificing career growth? I’m also pursuing the OMSA degree part time and am skilled in Python, SQL, & Tableau.

Desperate for ideas on how to deal with insane discovery requests in Florida given the lack of special sets and the time it takes a court to hear a motion for protective order. It's becoming a pattern that we do our objections or a motion for protective order, but OC's immediately move to compel and for sanctions at the discovery deadline. By the time the court decides the issue, it's usually in favor of the party propounding the discovery because they hate overdue discovery and don't even read.
