    28-30K? Are you crazy! That's a good starting salary! Work your way up or build experience at least.
    someone on that peasant pay grade needs to constantly worry about his survival and won't be able to buy pretty things for madam chapo. would you be happy getting reebok pumps for your birthday? bracelets made out of oak wood, living off sliced bread, green bananas and water?

    you get with a man on an alan sugar salary and it's a ****ing celebration. you walk to your post office wearing these pythons on your feet like you slayed the snake with your bare hands the night before:



    why would i be happy with 28-30K when i know i can be on 40K? you think el chapo EVER settled for 28K? the guy might be a notorious criminal but he paved the way for successful, wealthy people and his name was more than a name, it was a lifestyle. just follow the damn blueprint and your bum life will honestly be changed. the shirt he's wearing in my avatar alone is easily worth 30K.

    "Tech" for a big consultancy firm, as in following a continuous paper trail and employing legacy "technology", doing the same thing over and over simply to satisfy your boss? Sounds like great fun. I'd rather work for a rapidly growing, young firm with an unrivaled technology portfolio. Oh wait, I do work for a firm like that.

    He got a job at an HFT shop, not a consultancy uno. Quite a bit different.

    If HFT stands for High Frequency Trading, then enjoy being outsourced by computers.

    Swear it's £33-35k starting, bumps up to £40-45k then a huge bump up to £60-70k... Numbers might be slightly off but £70k in 4 years is feasible.

    A guy posted about EY numbers on the forum not so long ago, he was working for them, and it indicated £70k in 4-5 years was possible for a top performer.

    nw86 must be the biggest troll on TSR. £70k in 4 years is el chapo talks, guarantee you won't get there working for a consultant.

    you need to consider making a switch to IB a few years down your career if you want P's.

    It's all slavery.

    You spend your wage on rent, commuting, posh drinks and parking...get 28 days off a year and hand them the waking hours of your 20's and 30's.

    20k? 30k? 40? It matters not - though of course the latter is better than the former.
    In 10-15 years you might well be on 6 figures. You'll still be working all the hours under the sun but will have become accustomed to a level of income and will have larger expenses. Tough to that give up...or to swing into early retirement.

    That said, best of luck - roll the dice and see what happens. Hopefully not what we expect or is expected of us, as that's usually pretty depressing
    wow youve been here forever, do you mind explaining your story a little, are you out of of ib now? really cool to see an older member around here

    Depends on the consulting firm.

    To be fair, he gets a job at a Big 4 firm doing consultancy, he'll be on £100K a year by the time he is 30.
    do you know this for sure?

    70k after a few years is bloody good to be honest (better than big 4 consulting), wouldn't have expected that - I bet they get their pound of flesh though, given that grad schemes for similar companies dont compare.
    what is roughly the big 4 consulting salary rises year on on year if you dont mind me asking? for years 1-5ish?
