I'm interested in getting benchmarks on salaries for university graduates in the United States who are going to work at major consulting companies. Is there a big range? Are there any good recent studies? #consulting #compensation

You should clarify what you mean by university graduate--post college, or advanced degree? J Pan Translate

I would check out Glassdoor.com, as the answer can vary a bit based on firm and location. Search for Bain, McKinsey, BCG, Deloitte... that should give you a good sample.


General guidance:
College grad (Bachelor's degree) is $60K - $80K
MBA or advanced degree grad is $100K-$150K

Salary is attributed with various factors such as Location (San Francisco, Ca Vs Austin, Tx), School in which you gets graduated and company in which you are recruited. I have seen ranges between $60 K to $80 K for Post graduate students. Sometimes it might be luck to join start-up with stock option and later become IPO and gets you profitable.

Salary also depends on the location of the job. For example San Francisco and New York will have a higher salary, but the living cost will be also higher. For example in San Francisco, the entry level will be closer to 100K

The major consulting firms usually have a similar range in terms of salaries. Do you mean university graduate as post-college or post-MBA/JD/MD/PhD? Typically post-college salary are around $60K and post-MBA/JD/MD/PhD (advanced degree) salaries are around $140K.


I'm not aware of any recent studies.
