Had same problem, left slightly below 200 for director position at f500, love the job

200 for base only or total?

just exit to industry and work your way up.
pick up some hobbies along the way and live a good life and retire in 20-25 years.

Might need to take a hit on base but shouldn’t be too hard to find something only marginally less but much better bonus/stock than the peanuts EY gives

Agree - never understood how EY retains people with their absurdly low bonus

You need FAANG

FAANG doesn't pay a whole lot more unless you're drastically underpaid. Bizops, PgMs, and StatOps roles are in the 200s unless you have 14-15+ years experience in consulting and a good MBA. Also note that most roles are still in the bay area.

Career conversations coming up… how do I successfully ask for a 15k(+) raise? —- backstory—- I took a career change and just graduated with my MS in December.

I’ve been working entry level for this company one month, and I’ve been praised left and right- saying I’m blowing everyone out of the water with my knowledge and efficiency. So it’s justified I correctly place myself at mid level.
