What are the main differential factors between consulting and industry jobs (excluding salary)
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

Hi ladies, I need some advice here: Recruiter reached out asking what I’m looking for in terms of salary (prior to any interviews) for a role that’s a higher title. Recruiter followed with a salary $X that the role is currently offering. The market has a wide range. Their current salary amount falls about the lower third of market range (smaller agency). What would you do? I’d love to interview but don’t want be bound by anything I say at this stage.

Any funds associates ever look into working for an offshore firm? Pay is a little lower than in major US markets but it's a tax free jurisdiction. Curious if anyone knows what senior associate/partner comp at a Walkers, Maples or Conyers is like.
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.

Anyone have any private insurance? Am a first year looking into disability policies and term life insurance...no clue how to proceed or how much coverage is reasonable. Would like to know from those who have these, how did you decide on your coverage?
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Can someone give a time sense for an average prep time for CSCP certification versus CPIM? I think CPIM takes much longer but not sure
I've been passed up for promotion. I know that if my mental health had been better this past year, I probably would have been promoted. Spent too many days just trying to survive rather than excel. 😡
