None of those companies are paying recent grads 200K. Even their more senior folks (non-partners) will not be making the big money. The guys with the experience and the credentials will be making 200K+ but they will be with small boutique consulting firms.

Very Very few folks who are not consultants will be making that kind of money. Companies will bring in the expertise when they need it but won't pay an employee that well.

I know this because I've been doing IAM/Security consulting for over 20 years. I know what I have to pay for talented resources.

Bzzt! Wrong. Many of the vehicles that anyone looking at them would classify as full size SUVs use unibody construction, especially at the higher end. Mercedes, Lexus, Infinity, Audi, etc are all unibody. Even Cadillac is looking to move their full size SUV to unibody. All of these seat 7+ and tow 7000+ pounds.

As for safety, there are only nine vehicles that have 0 driver fatalities in accidents from 2009 to 2012. Six of them are SUVs! None of them are hybrids or economy models.

Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
