Glassdoor has a lot of job postings

Best to talk to the folks you know and go in as a referral. If you are in financial services around NY and Charlotte, I know a FS botique consulting shop is hiring, if you are interested.

Check out the referral thread here on FB!

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
