A lot of convo on here stems around jumping around for salary. What is something that would inspire you to stay at your firm outside of comp?

Good leadership and management. Leaders who have a long term strategy (for their team, not just themselves) and can articulate it well, and take the time to sell / communicate it to the team should be able to inspire their junior staff to buy in to that vision and stick around. You will get the occasional one who leaves for more money, but that will always be a factor. If you are doing the good leadership thing and are STILL having significant staff turnover, it's likely you are paying comp that is below market. Employees don't leave Companies, they leave Managers.

This is totally correct. A team that works well and looks out for people is a place that people want to stay. If you have really high turnover you aren't treating people well.

Honestly, leadership has become so terrible in banking that it’s hard to jump on that. All of them suck. Banks should invest a lot more in polishing managers. I always say this “just because you know doesn’t mean you can lead”.

The worst is when they don't know and they can't lead though

I’ll play devil’s advocate and give you a really bad reason for sticking with a firm in spite of below market comp: loyalty. Any investment to a firm make out of some misguided feelings of loyalty to the firm is completely wasted because banks are cold blooded creatures by nature and won’t hesitate to show a loyal employee the door after umpteen years of service whenever budget cuts are mandated from on high. That gives managers an opportunity for payback for any slights and slanders, wheyjer real or imaginary.

Can confirm that happens - know many family friends who got cut because it would have been too expensive to pay their bonus that year since they did so well

Being able to give my employees an annual increase. I agree that employees leave managers, but they also leave companies that won’t reward or recognize their labor.

So true when looking at née hire starting comp and not being able to give inflation or similar comp increases to other team members.

Lots of disillusioned people here... I was recently surprised. My manager pushed me to apply for an internal role / promotion within the same team against external candidates. I did not volunteer... and got the role. This creates loyalty

I have an offer from EY. They rejected my counter offer for a higher salary but accepted my counteroffer for a higher sign on bonus. They gave me a few more days to think about the new offer. I want to know how likely would they be willing to renegotiate if I tell them I still want something closer to my original counter offer.

Thanks for doing this! Last year it was announced we would see a market correction in salary vs. the other big 4. What we got was underwhelming to say the least. What was the rationale behind this?

How should I tell my team I am pregnant? Context: I found out at the very start of the case and have kept it under wraps despite having to mute some conference calls to vom, etc. We have two weeks left and I plan to be transparent with staffing and future cases going forward, as I’m past 12 weeks, so it’s likely they would find out. I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?
