Putting auditor billing rates into perspective

I am still settling in from my office move and upacking some odds and ends. Today I came across a billing rate card from Arthur Andersen. The rates are from 9/1/96 to 8/31/97 for the Milwaukee office, and they are interesting. Notice this is over ten years ago.

These are the “Standard Rates” which were for non-busy-season times:

Partner $315
Director $305
Senior Manager $280
Experienced Manager $265
Manager $230
Senior $145
Experienced Staff $100
Staff $75

And during the busy season there were “Surcharge Rates”:

Partner $378
Director $366
Senior Manager $336
Experienced Manager $318
Manager $276
Senior $174
Experienced Staff $120
Staff $90

I wonder what today’s rates look like?
