Starting Salary at Consulting Firms
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?
