Black male, 31. Single. I have southern religious parents that can't seem to understand why I didn't want to have kids at 25, become a lifetime member at the church, and bring the family over for dinner on Sundays. I was actually asked "What do you get out of all of this traveling around to other places? Is that what you want to be doing in your 30s?" .....🙄..... Yes.

This may sound rough but as the child of Indian immigrants, don't listen to what your parents say about dating, marriage, etc. It's incompatible with the reality of being a young person in America in 2017. They have no clue what they're talking about

Parents want you to concentrate on school when you're younger to the detriment of your social life (no dating), then wonder why you're not married at 22. Sad!

30, female, and single. I have friends (about 3-4 couples) that got married young bc of parental pressure and the age thing -- all are divorced now. Marriage is about wanting to spend your life with someone you love. Not just finding someone random to check the marriage box.

My in-laws think any woman or black person in a leadership position is there because of diversity and that companies shouldn’t try to put any effort into promoting diversity in their recruitment because it harms minorities as people will always think those minorities are in a position of power only because they were hired because of gender/race quotas. They also think it’s perfectly justified in prioritizing hiring a woman over a man (all else being equal) because of potential for ‘me too’. 😣

Not sure if my question will make sense but I am really curious. When it comes to salaries in the consulting world, do we end up reaching a peak in our base?

I’m also curious to understand what salary trajectories are over time especially for people who have started in consulting and have basically never left this career path for 10-20 years.
