November 2018 - Volume 10, Issue 11

I hope this message finds you enjoying the cooler weather! Here's the latest news from what we're seeing in the Strategy & Corporate Development marketplace, followed by the open positions we're actively working to fill:
In case you missed it: We need your help for the 2019 Strategy Compensation Study! As many of you know, every January we release the most comprehensive strategy compensation study in the industry. New and expanding pay equity laws limit what the Charles Aris search team can ask candidates about their compensation histories, so we’ve created a survey to gather the data anonymously. The survey should take no more than three minutes to complete and is 100 percent anonymous. (A huge THANK YOU to those of you who have already completed it.) We need participation from each and every one of you, as every data point counts. By completing the survey, you are helping us continue to provide you with the best compensation data in the world of strategy!

Believe it or not: Even with bonus season right around the corner, Q4 can be the perfect time to land your next opportunity. Learn why in this blog post by our very own Jody Karavanic and Kris McClamrock.

Another mid-year raise: In recent years, the top consulting firms have occasionally provided mid-year raises in addition to the standard raises which take place at year’s end. This year is now officially one of those years. One Big Three firm recently announced across-the-board raises for their consulting team – further demonstration that consultants continue to command fantastic pay packages.

We're working on great opportunities and we want to hear from you! Below you will find a brief summary of each opportunity that we are working on, as well as the contact information for the Charles Aris team member spearheading the search. Please reach out to anyone on my team, or to me directly, to discuss these opportunities in greater detail – or feel free to forward this email along to friends and colleagues who may have an interest in learning more.
