So I received an offer that is +45k putting my total salary at 170 as a senior and I tried counter offering but my partner said to me that money will always be there but that I can’t buy connections and growth. I don’t understand the mindset behind this? Isn’t more money today worth more than more money tomorrow?

Have anyone been low balled when they joined a consulting firm? If yes, how did you go about fixing the gap in salary? I think I was low balled as a senior consultant and there was a gap of about 20-25% when I was made the offer. I was naive and did not negotiate - still living with the consequences.

Looking for some advice on an exit opportunity - Current role - 1 year post-MBA at a T2 strategy firm making $148 Potential role - senior level role at a small healthcare company at $265 + equity Seems like a slam dunk, but is moving to a company that isn’t well known going to harm me in the long run? Should I wait for a F500 role that is lower title / comp but better name recognition? Should I wait until I’m manager? Having a hard time with this from a long term view vs short term

Trying to decide b/t two offers, currently an Mgr w/ M7 MBA. Both are traditional multinationals, but diff sizes. Any help appreciated! 1) Director title, low brand recognition, smaller company (low multi-billion $ rev) no hope for stock. 185k base, 20% bonus, but heard no bonuses or salary bumps this year. 2) Senior Manager title (so one step below 1st offer), much larger company ($50B+), potential for stock at Director level, $175k salary, 10% bonus, but company is doing well despite COVID

Do you think sales has a better trajectory/potential than PA? I’m hearing senior salaries being 25% higher than starting salaries and exit opportunities around 40-45% higher than starting salaries after slaving for 3-4 years. Meanwhile, sales you could make the exit salary numbers in your first year (and in some cases 2x as much even with the pandemic). What are your thoughts? PA is more stable, but I didn’t join accounting to be a CAO, I did it for money—- so where is it...?

Came into public accounting from school & put my head down & made it to Senior Manager (maybe a year early). Now, reflecting, I am considering whether this is what I want to do going forward and worried about being pigeon-holed to tax for life if I stay longer. Comp also has never kept up to expectations. For others who’ve been in this position, what made you stay or go? Is the grass greener? Or should I stick with it and be happy w/ slight chance at partner @ some pt down the line?
