Management consulting is a highly competitive industry â€” with highly competitive pay.
The consulting industry has taken a hit since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Over the last several months, firms had to halt business travel, adopt remote work tools, and adjust to the new normal while simultaneously serving corporate clients.
But many are still hiring for 6-figure jobs.
Nearly all of the consulting firms have extended full-time offers to this year’s summer interns who completed their programs virtually. Boutique firms specialised in healthcare, pharma, and corporate turnaround are looking to expand. Some firms, like PwC and KPMG, have slowed their recruitment efforts, but they are still looking and carefully hiring talent.
So how much can you make if you land a job in management consulting right now?
Business Insider has compiled a list of salary reports for major consulting firms. These guides are based on our analysis of the US Office of Foreign Labour Certification’s 2019 disclosure data for permanent and temporary foreign workers, annual salary reports from career-development company Management Consulted, and interviews with experts.
