How are you measured against your grades?

Hey Guys

I was wondering how your consultancies measure you against your pay grades?

What specific factors do they measure for their reward schemes/ bonuses (apart from the perfromance of the company)

Usually a subjective assessment of how "cool" you are and how much of a fuss you will kick up if you don't get as much as they think you think you should get.

Haha

It would be interesting to know the official policy, espcially the big 4

does how consulancys measure their employees differ or is it generally the same?

Mr Cool to Bushy Eyebrow Partner (#2)

Oooooo! Get you BEP! What's wrong with being measured on how cool you are? I suppose you think a fairer measure would be an eyebrow bushiness bell curve?

To be honest my real name is not Mr Cool - it's Thor Speedboat. Mr Cool is a stage name I adopted when I started modelling for Armani.

Anon MCs to Bushy Eyebrow Partner (#5)

I can't believe Coolio + BEP are on this thread and still the poor gentleman has not got a proper answer to his original question...

Please see below, for the "official" and "unofficial" way these things are done in MCs

1o) Have you delivered on time and on budget what was assigned to you plus other bits

1un) Is your Line Manager happy? Did you help him look good to his boss. Oh, did you do the important bits he asked like a pretty ppt on the Friday night

2o) You carried out work that has helped the MC move forward or benefit

2un) Did a Partner notice what you did? Who did? Who genuinely cares about it? Anyone? Were you able to take any of the kudos or has a more senior consultant put it down as his work with you doing a bit here and there?

3o) You helped bring additional MCs onto client site

3un) To be fair, this one really does help. This is an excellent way to help your £££

4un) Network, politics. Who cares if you are not happy with your grade and bonus, does it really matter if you leave? Which Partner is going to stand up for you in the infamous grades allocation meeting. If you are just a doer with a mid level manager that likes you, look forward to a below inflation rise and a bonus to buy a Pret sandwich. If a Partner has taken a shine, well hello new car and extra holiday.

I look forward to being corrected by Coolio and BEP
