Does anybody know which IT consulting firm pays its consultants the most? What percentage of bill rate do they pay?

Why would you want to work for a consulting firm? They'll pay you far less than they charge clients for your services. Much better to bypass the middleman and sell your skills to the clients directly.

If he's new in the workforce, he may not have the connections yet to pull in big clients. Maybe he wants a few years in a firm that will give a more steady paycheck, and work out from there. Also, chasing clients is not for everyone. That is well out of my comfort zone.

Samiwas kind of nailed it. Have you worked with any consulting firms you can recommend that have projects with big clients and will give me a fair deal?
