Aren’t the defense companies notorious for underpaying?

Good to know I’m about to get lowballed lol

Lockheed’s benefits are nuts though congrats

like

This is true. At least when I worked there, 10% match for 401k, every other Friday off, flexible work hours, never had to work over 40 hours/wk

What level is the position?

Worked at Lockheed previously, honestly your looking at under 100k, potentially well under

:(

Where is your MBA from? Are you an SC or M?

Top school in the South? Big difference between Fuqua / UNC and the rest of the South. With that said, what level are you coming in at? There are ranges at the staff level. In general I've known two Ms who left for A&D companies in the last few years, neither took a cut in TC. Bonus goes down, base up. and they get stock awards.

Yes defense contractors will under pay. Had an offer at Northrop prior to joining Deloitte

Depends on the level. Know two Ms who left for A&D with higher bases and TC

i was laid off yesterday and only have 5 months of associate producer experience. anyone know of anyone hiring entry level production positions around chicago?

Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team.

Need help deciding, after big4 audit as a senior is it better to go into a industry accounting role or internal audit if what I’m looking for is less hours but still great pay. I’m leaning towards internal audit since there are no month and year end closing periods. Does anyone have any insight? I’m in a HCOL

In a rapidly growing practice, and perhaps 2 years from (non-equity) “partnership”. I like my team and the work I do, but I’ve only ever been a consultant and am tempted to jump to industry to try it out. Interviewing for a Fortune 20 company and applying to others. Maybe FAANG. Let’s say I’m 60% driven by comp, 40% driven by impact. Am I crazy for looking to leave? Should I just continue to ride this one-way train?

Hi everyone. I am having a rough time with morale at my company. The issues can be traced back directly to senior leadership, and I have rolled up the feedback and issues time and time again. I am no longer sure what to tell employees who come to me for help. We just launched an engagement survey (my last ditch effort to get senior leaders to LISTEN). Any advice on how best to coach employees through this if I am losing hope that things will change?
