Started with EY as an intern, currently a Senior 2 moving to Senior 3 in Oct. Part of Indirect Tax in the New York Metro Area. Reviews and utilization are consistently above peer group average. CPA, no Masters. Currently salary is 77k. I feel like I’m underpaid compared to peers/others when I see threads on Fishbowl. Does this seem low to anyone else? I need a 17% raise to break 90k at Snr 3, which I’d be bummed to not get after EY preached about high raises. New job searching level bummed 😔.

So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech).

It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?

I burned out It took Covid for me to realize just how stressed I was on a day to day basis. Thankfully, moved into industry and got help from doctor and therapy and am beginning to recover. I hope you all take care of yourselves and don't have to go through what I did. We are all type A personalities, however and I feel that because we are, our instinct is to push through the pain. Just writing this to hopefully get you all to check in on yourselves.
Are you or have you been the sole HR person at the company? What are the pros & cons? I haven’t been, but a recruiter reached out with an opportunity to be one. They currently use the parent company’s HR but are buying themselves out to be a stand alone firm. TIA!

How would I go about getting an adderall script? I was diagnosed with ADHD in the 2nd grade however my parents took me off the pills due to weight loss and change in mood.

Through friends of friends, I’ve had Adderall a few times and I’ve felt the focus I need to get through my work. I would be interested in obtaining a script; anyone here in NYC know of doctors that could diagnose/prescribe me?

Just joined a small consulting firm, like the work and the people so far. They hired me at a lower level and salary for lack of BD experience, with the expectation that I perform and earn a promotion in 3-6 months. I have another better offer with a larger product based company that’s setting up its consulting business as one of the early hires. Is there a nice way I can leverage offer 2 with company 1? I’ll feel terrible about leaving tbh. This would also be my 1st job in the country.
