Consulting pay is a joke
Is it just me or do others also think Consulting pay is a joke. While our banking peers are getting substantial base raises (in addition to their already high bonuses), we are getting peanuts compared to the hours worked. I am wrapping up my first year at an in NYC and will probably clear ~120k USD pre-tax including base and bonus. My hours have been terrible during WFH (and this is without the travel component -- can't even imagine what that will look like once travel to client site resumes. I'm already actively looking for exits.
