I'm just saying that I saw online that the entry level consultants are getting 90k as base with 10k as bonus. I did not say that was the offer. Apologies for the confusion.

I'm just wondering what a junior consultant with 3 yrs of Corp Finance experience should be getting. But from the postings above, I presume its around the ballpark of 120k-150k depending on the interview performance.

Apart from the MBBs, I'm also interviewing with a couple of other investment firms. I said it was a paycut because I thought the all-in salary would be S$100k but obviously I am wrong.

Right now, I'm just trying my best to measure the value of the exposure and experience in consulting, because I know that if I base it purely on salary alone, the choice is clear.
not sure where you went in the end.. or whether u are happy with your decision. would be cool if you could share.. 3 years on.

Unregistered May I ask Corp Finance at which MNC?

Since it's not a bank, I am very curious. Unless you mean you're an MA at some bank?

Not saying that relocation is available in every case; certainly not if the candidate is a local grad. But depending on circumstances, a US/EU MBA grad may be provided relocation expense even though s/he is returning home. The likelihood for this increases if the candidate has lived abroad for a long time.

AFAIK, MBB offers at analyst and associate levels are standardized (on a country basis), so there is no significant deviation from one candidate to another. The leeway is in upfront bonus (sign-on, relocation, etc).

It depends on where you are placed, which in turn depends on your interview performance.

A BS/BA holder (no MBA) with 3-year experience is typically placed at the senior analyst level. At this level, the base salary is around S$120-150K.

If you are placed at a junior associate level (this is the same level as newly minted MBAs), the base salary is around S$150-180K.

The above figures are a few years old, so if others have more recent figures, please contribute. But be mindful that this is not a moderated forum, so a lot of chatters.

Bonus at the analyst and associate levels rarely goes beyond 20-30% of base. Even at manager and principal levels, it rarely goes beyond 40-50%.

Hope that is useful.
