Partner verbally promised me mid year December promotion to Senior Consultant after I said I was leaving as I got a better offer (60% pay increase at a small company and 3 title jumps). Can I ask him for it in writing or will that piss him off? Have you seen partners backtrack on their promise before? Can this be just a gimmick to retain me ?
Debating if I should take up a Mck lateral EM offer vs a Director level IC role in F500 in an industry I was before getting my MBA? TC is similar between the two offer, but trying to see what are other factors I should use to evaluate the two offers? For context, I am a manager at B4 and targeting SM promotion by 2022-2023 - so not taking any offers is also a viable option.
Currently at my firm (digital practice) for 2.5 years making 110k in NYC - pushing for Manager by Q2 2019. Is it worth sticking out for promotion, or should I make a move (soon)?
I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety. I want to feel happy about meeting my parents and friends after so long but I’m so not in the zone to deal with comments and questions about him. Anyone dealt with this before? Any advice is appreciated!
Consider a new pandemic, at what % fatality rate do you think vaccines will mandated by law for all citizens? This is not the last pandemic society will face. COVID has a low death rate compared to Ebola for example. What % fatality rate would it take for governments around the world including the US to legally require mandatory vaccinations of all citizens? Would it be 10%? 20? 50%? fatality rate? Or will we never mandate vaccines in lieu of personal freedom?

Have you worked on a weekend? This is my first time experiencing this and I really want to raise this with my CD cause it’s concerning. Accounts are pushing me to send the layouts on a Sunday.
As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…

What's the point of constantly trying to climb the ladder and wanting "more"? Does anyone feel content around here? I used to put a lot of pressure on myself and would always have short/long term goals mapped out. I hit a financial goal this year - make at least 6 figures in base pay. I live in a MCOL area and it's plenty for me to live on. With bonuses and annual raises, even if I never get promoted again, I'd be good. Is it bad that I want to just be happy and focus on my personal life?
