Management consulting salaries revealed: How much top firms like McKinsey and PwC pay everyone from interns to C-suite execs

Boston Consulting Group office in Hudson Yards, New York. Sarah Jacobs/Business Insider Management consulting is a highly competitive industry — 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 consul...

I'm a chief human resources officer at an over 70,000-person company where 72% of staff are women. Here's how we're making sure they're supported in their careers.

Getty Images Maxine Carrington is deputy chief human resources officer at Northwell Health, New York's largest healthcare system and private employer. She says that while the pandemic is hopefully short-lived, the impact that it's had on working mothers in the workplace will not be. Employers need to step up and support women where they are, from focusing on their well-being to offering backup care options. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

More Automation is Coming! Bulletproof Your Career

Guest post from Edward D. Hess: Everyone knows that jobs have been automated over the last 20 years.

What I Wrote More Than Ten Years Ago Is Clearly Nonsense Today!!

Thankfully! I'm very happy about that change. The post, published in 2010, was written still earlier. At the time, my coaching revealed that it was absolutely necessary. This single post garnered more than 35,000 readers and something like 32 comments, half profoundly rejecting and the other half profoundly reinforcing. I published most of them on the site. When I got into executive coaching in 1984 there were very few women VP's, much less CEOs. One client, a CEO from a well-known consu...

So, Pete Buttigieg Annoys His Competition

I find that amusing. Especially when his competitors immediately go to his lack of Washington experience. There is absolutely no necessary correlation whatsoever between experience and expertise. That’s a well-researched conclusion. My wife, an elementary school teacher, came home one day with an anecdote from a teachers’ workshop. The speaker told the story of someone wanting a position as elementary coach because she had twenty years of elementary school experience. Her principal refused, but...

Tired of losing employees to competitors? Culture is key

High turnover rates should be a warning sign to companies. Not only do they decrease performance and morale, they can be very costly. To improve retention, businesses need to build a culture that is worth sticking around for. Image Source: Pexels Culture is key to Retention Many managers believe that employees abandon ship solely because of compensation issues. But retention goes much deeper than a ...

Lifelong Learning for Lifelong Employability

What’s the best way to go about business learning and stay abreast of constant change and new developments? In the February issue of the McKinsey Quarterly, Beth Davies and colleagues go beyond my question and focus on learning for lifelong employability. They set up their conclusions by distinguishing between the skills people have and the actual skills companies need. Then, of course, they add artificial intelligence into the mix, making for an absolutely superb analysis of human competitive ...

Until Managers Commit To Diversity, We Won't See Any Real Change

Latoya Matthews* has had a toxic relationship with a boss. And, though their immediate boss' toxicity trickled down from a superior, they often ended up feeling gaslit and unsupported. “This left me feeling overworked, [and] not heard,” Matthews said. “[I felt] severely underpaid for the work I did and under valued as an employee.”Matthews is not alone in their experiences. According to the new 2018 Women in the Workplace study, put together by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company, women still fac...

Your Leadership Team Wants Hires Only From Elite Schools - They're Wrong...

It's a dance as old as time itself. Your leadership team has opinions on talent - which is good.  They're interested.  That's a positive. But one of the calls a lot of leadership teams make is this: "In order to be the best, we've got to recruit from the best. We should really focus on elite schools for our key hires - Ivy and maybe a few other schools" There are a couple of problems with that stance.  Let's list them: Your company may not be an attractive destination to graduates of elite col...

What will change when millennials lead?

A reporter emailed me to set up a call to talk about millennials. There was a time in my life when I would have ignored the email. I’m tired of talking about millennials. But now that I’m home with kids, I say yes to reporters so I have someone interesting to talk to. This one asked me about how millennials will change leadership. She wanted a quote about David Solomon – quintessential BS-laden story that millennials eat up. He’s the CEO-in-waiting at Goldman Sachs who is also a DJ and . And...

Nervousness At Work Is The Worst — Here Are 7 Ways To Deal

If you're someone who is highly prone to stultifying bouts of nervousness, don't beat yourself up. First, doing so could make your anxiety worse. Second, you have a much more available scapegoat in human biology and evolution.To put it very simply, nervousness and fight-or-flight reactions are physiological reactions to stimuli that our body wants us to watch out for. In the past, those dangers were sometimes mortal ones — dangerous terrain, flora, and fauna. Today, as ASAPScience explains, we ...

McKinsey Report: Managing Others and Influence Safe From Next Wave of AI/Automation...

McKinsey has a pretty good report out about where machines/AI can replace humans, and where they can't. I'd encourage all in the talent space to take a look - here's the link. What you learn from the report is that AI and other forms of automation aren't new related to their ability to destroy jobs and cause dramatic restructuring of workforces as we know them.  A recent HBR article shows that between 1900 and 1990, the population of farmers in the United States went from 30 million to 3 million...
