When is the best time to ask for a raise?
A friend has offers for Bain and BCG Dubai at the consultant level (joining just after his MBA) and he is confused on which one to take. Any thoughts to help him make a decision? Things he cares about are total compensation, career progression, mobility/ transfers to other offices and casework focus on tech (if any).

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Can someone tell me if I'm being crazy or if I should really be hitting the job market, like, yesterday?

How do you respond to "What do you want to do?", asked asked by a partner? I joined consulting as part of an acquisition, never really wanted this career. I honestly just want to make money and get promoted for the experience. I've really enjoyed my time at a B4 and have learned a ton but am not partner track. Is it bad to admit I'm not looking to make partner? Will that hurt my promotion to manager chances? Do I need to tell him something more specific than "I want to make manager?"

I have cleared all round including HR round also, they ask me to upload salary slip, offer letter, hike letter after salary discussion. Then they again sent mail for upload updated resume with college name mention where I did my graduation, instead of asking for upload documents like marksheet, experience letter etc. Is it common for all to release offer letter. Is anyone went through same process as mine. Please let me know.

Question about contingency fees (I work in an insurance defense firm and therefore have no idea)- client signs contingency agreement with law firm. Law firm eventually sees case is not going to be a winner in court, and therefore withdraws. Client, on his own, negotiates a settlement. Is prior law firm that withdrew beforehand entitled to fees from the settlement? It’s a first-party property damage case. Thanks in advance!
I’m curious what the opinions are on the process they have seen or used to get promoted. I’ve never had it happen in my career this way but in my mind, your work speaks for itself, you advocate for yourself, ask for a promotion when it’s not been offered. Then you get promoted after you make your case if you do qualify. The way I’ve seen it (& a reason I’m leaving my current company) is where they only promote people when they’ve threatened to leave or received a different offer. Thoughts?
That awkward moment when your client whips out an electronic cigarette and starts puffing away mid presentation.
