Recently I was given anS&O for a consultant position. I have almost 5 years of indutstry experience (non-consulting) and an MBA from IE Business School in Madrid Spain.
The offer I was giving was between 115-120K. I thought this was good from reviewing the salaries on Glassdoor. However, viewing some of the threads here and on ManagementConsulted, I saw numbers in 140K.
I reset my range to Deloitte to be 132-140K based on this information. They said that meeting this range was "impossible," even though I feel I've gotten these numbers from credible sources.
My question is, what should I believe? Is 115-120K a real lowball offer, or do the 140K + numbers I see online apply to only certain schools? IE Business School was ranked #8 Global by the FT in 2017, so I believe it is a well reputable school. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
