What's the hirarchey level for PwC's Deal Values Practice? Associate, Sr. associate, Manager, Director, Partner? Do they have Sr. Manager too? Also, what's the typical salary range for M, SM and Din NYC. TIA
Got an offer from a great agency but the salary is actually lower than what I make now. I currently work at an equally good agency but the crickets are chirping in the opportunity department. I really want to get a chance to produce good work, but my current agency is known for paying sh*t. I would have to move with my partner to another country to get even less money for a potentially (never know) good gig... Honestly, I am very lost and don't know what to do. Any advice is welcome.
Any thoughts on The Hackett group’s strategy practice and comp range at the Partner or Associate Partner level? I’ve heard they were growing well, pre-pandemic, and are filled with ex Deloitte folk. I’m an ex-D SM now a partner at a smaller shop. Thanks.
How would you react to a partner saying “I think we pay you too much” as a snide remark because i moved to a nicer apartment than earlier, very well knowing that we have had salary reductions since i joined and, no bonuses (and i worked more than 2000 hours in 10months of joining). I let it slide with a “I really wish”. But it’s still making me so angry because i feel very underpaid.
2021 career reflection- Manager making 150k+ 15-35% bonus. ~7 years🪜 to Partner. How much does a Partner make? Welcome all insights, even range would do.
$1.5M client and new “profitability tool” showing %0 profit. Credit split 50/50 btw 20 year attorney/equity partner (JEP) and a much more senior/connected EP (SEP). Both SEP and JEP developed separate workstreams unrelated to the other. SEP‘s was terminated 3 years ago and only accounts for $200K trail off of the $1.5M. SEP’s salary is 3 times JEP’s. Profitability tool “costs” are not transparent, suspect SEP’s high salary is a factor. Anything (other than typical overhead) to ask about?
If partners now are making $1M-$3M, will partners in 20-30 years be making double that? Curious to see how partner comp has grown over time (if it has).
https://joinfishbowl.com/post_0um71i A lot of debate here and we’ve gotten a lot of “ranges.” Anybody have actual insight on the avg/median comp Principal/MD/Partner or how the comp model actually translates to numbers? Several of my peers would love to have a clearer sense of this salary trajectory in figuring out next steps.
Would you go to a boutique from a large Tier-2 for the same title, compensation, work life balence, industry focus, and timeline to partner? Why or why not?
What is the salary range for a new partner for MBB in India? I know bonus might vary.. but would like a range assuming average performance
Tell me if I’m missing something here. In consulting, you sign up to work yourself to the bone for 15ish years at well below market pay for the chance of making partner where you will still be somewhat below market for another 10 years working yourself to the bone for the chance at maybe being a senior partner for 10 years making decent money while still working insane hours all while paying for your boss’s salary and pension and their retired boss’s pension. What about this is appealing again?
$1.15M in collections this year under my origination, $900k in working collections. 2 year track record as partner. Am Law 100. What should my salary be for 2021?
Has anyone looked into or pursued a PhD in accounting? I’m 32 years old and planning to have kids in the next few years so the thought of going back to school for 4-5 years is pretty scary. Im also nervous about giving up my salary to be a student again. My partner is very supportive and we don’t necessarily need my salary but I’m also very independent and the thought of relying on someone else financially makes me uneasy. I know I don’t want to stay in public accounting and would love to teach.
How long would one typically need to be a partner to make it "worth it?" I'm expecting to be considered in 2-3 years but also have lived a modest lifestyle and we likely could retire comfortably in 10 years or so at my current salary/position. Part of me wants to focus on spending more time with my family rather than being laser focused on being a partner. Most of our partners seem to stay until mandatory retirement at 60.
How would you handle not getting a bonus or a raise this year even if you outperformed expectations? I really like my job and the work, but my comp is not matching my responsibilities and performance imo. Partner has ducked me for the last week trying to have a meeting about 2020 productivity.
Having some initial discussion with a Google Recruiter for an opportunity at their Google Cloud practice. We haven’t gotten to the exact role but they used some generic terms like “leadership role” and “global practice leader”. I am a 6th year B4 Partner with tech strategy and implementations background. What would be a comparable role at Google to exit to (in terms of responsibility and comp)?
I am with a B4 and on the partner pipeline (probably in 2 years). Have an offer from a successful tech start-up for the slightly higher base and variable comp (last year average for this role was 2.5x base) and options. I really like consulting and wasn't looking to move. Not knowing anything else, what are your thoughts? What questions should I ask?
Anyone else feel like a sucker for not going the CS+SWE/PM route? Only way to catch up in comp is making partner but even then the wlb can't even compare

I am a senior associate (longest tenured) at a small firm of 1 partner and 5 associates. For a Christmas “bonus “ this year I got an Omaha Steaks delivery. In the 6 years prior, we always received cash bonuses. Should I be offended? I don’t know how to feel.
How many associates don’t have access to their full billing software? All I can do is input my time and create a recap of hours report for different date ranges. No ability to check on amounts billed to clients or receipts so there is no way to track my realization rate or progress towards bonus. Is this something I should bring up with the managing partner?
Junior here. Can a partner/counsel/senior associate (or anyone else who knows what's up) explain revenue collection to me like I'm 5? Basically I'm wondering how it is that big law firms generally have the same pay for associates as other big law firms. However, speaking to some of my friends at other firms, our billing rates are WAY different (ex. my hourly rate as a second year at my firm is the same as a 4th year's rate at another firm). How are situations like this even possible?
Would you take high risk / high reward consulting gig at a small firm? Comp is hourly and project based. Firm has a good foothold in the niche market. Offers lots of flexibility. But no benefits and since it’s project and hourly based it’s feast or famine. If you have a partner (spouse, domestic partner, etc.) and they had a stable job, would it change your perspective of taking the high risk/high reward role?
Would you take a consulting role that is big risk big rewards? The comp structure is hourly so you’re paid significantly more if working but potential would be no work no pay. Would your mind change if your partner had a stable job?

Crazy thing happens. Just got informed by a partner that I'm getting 18% bonus for the year (wasn't expecting that) and I had planned to tell the same partner that I'm leaving because of pay... now feeling terrible
What much do folks at McKinsey get paid? (Equivalent at BCG, Bain is appreciated too). Basically looking for a split of Base + Bonus Range at Senior Associate, Engagement Manager and Junior Partner level in India.
Current non-equity partner at a firm with 10 attorneys; 2 equity partners). I’m currently paid with a salary plus profit sharing for a portion of the work I do (we do contingency work only). I have chance to be equity if I want. The financial benefit is that I’d profit share from everyone’s work not just my own. The downside is that I’d help pay others’ salaries. First, should I push to be equity? And second, they want me to buy in to the partnership since they have been paying salaries for ...
Left UK 5 years ago as Mgr because got fed up of low comp (and really, it’s the comp:houseprice ratio). Felt like unless you were in IB or Magic Circle law then getting on the property ladder was v difficult.
