I’m 24 and just started my career at EY as a consultant. I feel good about the salary I make, work I do, and where I’m at in my career. My personal life also has a ton of fulfillment and truly makes me so happy. That being said, I have a high school classmate and close friend who was in IB and just started his own hedge fund type of business after leaving his big bank job. I feel like I’m falling behind. He’s probably going to end up a millionaire fast. I try not to compare but can’t hell mtseld

HELP! I just got a BCG consultant offer. PwC paid for my MBA. I still need to work here for 3 more years before not owing any of it back (currently would have to pay 100% of it if I left). Is the move worth it? Or should I maybe push to move to Strategy& (internal move) instead of BCG?

Salaries for business consultants vary depending on level of experience and location. Wages are steady, with the highest salaries seen in Alberta, Ontario, and British Columbia. Salary ranges are higher for those with a graduate degree or doctorate in business. Business consultants make a higher than average income but can make more in cities or urban areas. For those who want to make more money as a business consultant it is good to look for a job with a large corporation as they will pay the highest wages.
Making more money as a consultant isn’t as cut-and-dry as in other careers. It largely depends on who/what you consult on. If you work for a gigantic multinational consulting firm like McKinsey or one of the Big 4 accounting firms, odds are you earn near the top of the spectrum and the only way to earn more would be to start your own firm. If this isn’t the case, however, there are a few steps you can take to earn more. Earning an MBA can add value to your resume and arm you with the skills to work on a wider range of businesses. Learning modern ways of working, like Agile methodology, can also make you more proficient and efficient, which might boost your productivity (and earning potential). Your location can also play a major role in how much you earn, with consultants in large urban centres earning more than others by virtue of being in proximity to the kind of large corporations that generally hire consultants.
Your ability to negotiate a higher salary as a consultant will depend on how your company operates. If you make a set salary, you might be able to negotiate for more if you have years of experience to point to. If you earn a commission based on business outcomes you help achieve, your earning potential is entirely up to you and your willingness to perform better. If you work independently or as a partner at a consulting firm, you’re in the same scenario, and your earning potential will depend on earning more clients. You’ll get a good sense of whether or not your salary is fair by comparing it to consultant positions in your area, but be mindful that some regions (like Toronto or Vancouver) are very saturated with consultants while others (like the territories) have little or no demand for them, so you may need to move in order to earn what you feel you deserve.
About 69.13% of Consultant professionals feel satisfied with their salary, according to anonymous Glassdoor ratings. An additional $6,205 in potential pay per year, among other factors, can qualify the annual pay of a Consultant in Canada as a good salary.
Consultant professionals in Canada have a wide total pay range, between $57,043 and $148,539 depending on experience, with an estimated total pay of $88,936 following the average career path of a Consultant.
