Hi All. Currently I am one year out of college and a staff consultant at Capgemini working with cloud ERPs and to be honest I think we college hires got screwed on salary compared to other firms. Granted we were college hires but a promotion only comes with a 5-10k boost in salary depending on each service lines budget and we all started around 65k. Recently, after a year at Cap I started interviewing else where. I got offers at other firms and software companies in the same industry of cloud applications for senior consultant and the salary ranged from 100k - 120k on my offers. Granted these are smaller boutique companies but was my starting salary bad to begin with? and how long does it usually take a entry consultant get to 6 figures staying within the same firm? Do similar firms like Deloitte, EY, PWC, Accenture start college hire consultants higher?

    Also depends on locale. Everyone I know in tech consulting at ACN started at $80k in NYC 4-5 years ago. Probably a little bit more now.

      It's still roughly the same from what I've heard.

    How is the outlook on consulting in the future for cloud computing? Thinking about starting my own one man operation once I get a few more years experience under my belt
