Hi fellow EA fish 🐟🐠🐡 I’m hoping to make comp comparisons between MBB and the Big 4 since Glassdoor and other websites aren’t that accurate. Please feel free to DM!
Just received an offer for 95k base as a staff analyst at EY. Currently in industry (finance) my TC last year was just under 100k. Not thrilled as EY’s benefits are worse than my current firm and TC is likely to be the same. I’m not happy at my current firm and I know this isn’t the norm but EY seems to have a better WLB. What do people think about the offer? EY rep seems to think there is not a lot of flexibility to negotiate, this seems to be near the top. Should I ask for a signing bonus?

If anyone is in privacy / incident response, I’d love to compare comp stats. I joined my firm as a complete newbie and didn’t have lots of leverage but now that I have a successful year under my belt, I want to be as prepared as possible going into reviews.
Currently making $135k base (expected to get $10-15k bonus end of year) Received an offer at a boutique firm for $120k + $15k bonus Y1 with potential to jump to TC of $160k+ in Y2. This company has much better WLB and more interesting work, but feels dumb to not take advantage of other firms potentially offering a huge salary jump for switching right now. Do I keep looking?

I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.

Any tips for navigating client office politics? I’m working on a process improvement project involving multiple teams and one team feels threatened that my client team is taking work from them (and that their jobs will be in jeopardy as a consequence), and they are slowing down progress which prevents me from doing my job. Client execs are aware but have their hands tied. What’s the best way around this?
