Pay growth slows for consultants


Big pay rises are rare in management consultancy this year as projected increases fail to materialise, according to the latest Management Consultancy salary survey.

Senior associates and principal consultants in boutique management consultancy firms have pocketed the biggest pay rises this year, the survey found.

Senior associates and principal consultants made the largest gains, but only took home 3% more than in 2004. Recent graduates saw a small improvement of 1.6% while, surprisingly, consultants with two to four years' experience saw the smallest rise with 0.6%.
