1% raise, 0 VC, joined as an associate Sep last year. Deloitte is offering me the a 30% raise + higher title - do I stick it out at KPMG bc I've garnered a network or start over at Deloitte?

If you're going to move, do it early as an associate of senior. Once you make manager then networks are important. Your network as an associate is most likely you knowing several partners, but you're just another cog to them. Take the money and run. These firms don't look out for you (you got shafted on raise and VC) so you need to look out for yourself. They take our youth, give us stress, don't pay us what we are worth, think we are happy with 1% raises when they increase bill rates 4%, don't support us. Fuck em.

Also, if you mean move federal at Deloitte. Don't just do federal for utilization if you don't like those types of project. In the long run you won't be happy and in turn won't perform well and in turn will not make good merit and VC

Go. 1% is like a 50 cent tip at a restaurant. They didn't forget... it was carefully considered and the result was assholery

If "network" doesn't compensate you well (be it projects or money), the network is useless. You will build a network pretty quick at any place if you are sincere and provide value.

30% is enough to bounce. I wouldn't do it for less than 20-25%

THANK YOU @PWC1! I'm an associate, but I learned from my current EM that I'm charged at an SA rate. (It was funny, he was like "congratulations! I see you got promoted!" Bc he saw the stark increase in my bill rate and thought I'd been promoted) Screw them 😒

Agree with EY2, 30% makes it worth your while. 1% is kind of insulting... that's like getting someone a Starbucks gift card for they're EOY bonus...

If your VC was 0%. That means you were identified as a performing in the bottom 40-50% of your group. Unless you really think you're a low performer, that should be the biggest insult. Get the heck out, and don't look back.

For sure leave. By giving you 0 VC, they already made up their mind that they do not value you or care if you go elsewhere.

1% isn't even a raise, but a pay cut factoring in inflation.

It means that say you get a 10% raise next year, it's only 10% more than what you have now rather that 10% more than where you should be

OP you should take the Deloitte offer. 100% take it. 1% raise versus 30%? I know you may like your network but fuck them bc they obviously don't like you (NO OFFENSE! I love you! ❤️). Your team gets on a call and vouch for how much money everyone should get. If your practice line is your network, then they did not vouch for you.

I’ve (1-3 year) been at my current firm (plaintiff lit) for a little less than 1 year. 75K base, got a small COLA and bonus in December. Recently, I’ve had tons of recruiters contacting me as a “great fit” for $100k+ jobs, same practice area. I’d jump, but I like the people at current firm. Should I look into these jobs? Should I ask for a raise? When is too soon to ask?
