Hi! First post alert! I am on a small team working to build a new boutique operations consulting firm. We are building out our performance evaluation processes and I was curious as to what the big 4 and other large consulting firms do for their evals? What parameters/data do you go over in evals with employee? What deliverable stats do you care to go over? Anything else you think would be helpful is greatly appreciated!

What's the salary guideline based on YoE in Big 4 ?
Does this change for YoE experience - say YoE*4 for upto 5 year experience, YoE *3, etc for different experience levels.

Is there a ballpark range to consider such as YoE * (y) where y is the multiplier factor. Where to find for senior levels > 15 years
