no! but if you find out, please share your findings!

i am sure it won't have anything to do with your project experience, the module you work in, the current state of the market, the firms position and pipeline in that market and how you negotiate your contract! no variables whatsoever....

Usually SAP pays best.

Baz, haha, of course there's a lot of variables. Got to start somewhere though. There have to be companies that pay strong across the board.

Snowy, have you worked for SAP before?

i only have experience of working with two consultancies and the one i work for now paid me more than the one i worked before.! ;)

HCL pays a high salary. Capgemini pays a good salary but has a a good additional benefits package. but you can opt to not take the benefits and have it as cash instead! ;)

Easy Question, Simple answer.... Yours


If you have marketable skills you should be contracting.

My experience is 30-35% of the bill rate will be seen in salary.

For me, I would never go back to working for someone else. Besides the pay issue, you have all that HR bullcrap to put up with - annual goals and performance reviews. All nonsense in my opinion.

If you are going to be travelling anyway, you might as well enjoy the majority of the fruits of your labor. Otherwise, you might as well just get a corporate job and be home every night.

Well said. I have not had to be nice to someone I hate for 12 years now. My yearly performance review is called a tax return and its always good

I may be speaking out of hand here, but from what I've heard the Indian related consultanting companies pay the least. Does that help.

That's a bit of an open question though, because a lot depends on the skillset you have and the demand.
