Actually yes. For my last gig I had been freelancing for a couple years. I went full time and when asked salary I gave a range. They gave me the high number

I had a recruiter who suggested a # higher than the max I initially asked for. And I got it.

I had the opposite. I was asked my range at a job. The lier of a hiring manager told me that was fine. I went through all the interviews and this guy then calls me to tell me I got the job.

After the initial excitement, he proceeds to tell me that the range for the job was actually lower than my lowest number. I was so pissed. It was an obvious bait and switch.

@ACD OP I was also helped by a CCO who really liked working with me and wanted to support me as much as possible

Usually in the middle unless they don’t have the budget

Or stay with my current employer?

Should I take that offer or stay at Accenture only?

Can anyone provide me a salary range for a Consultant at BCG Platinion in Western Europe? (Ideally based out of London/ Brussels/ Amsterdam)

I recently got a comp adjustment approved (+15%), and they added a retention bonus on top - which was a total surprise. But it’s less than 10% of my comp and way smaller than what they’re giving SC and Ms (I’m an SM1). Unexpected money is great, but it’s not a very compelling amount for retention. I’m not looking to leave, and the amount would be easily covered by a signing bonus elsewhere - but it is kind of silly to me that they’re offering a retention bonus thats so small. Would you sign?

Not sure about others but I feel like acct management can be a tricky side. Ever since I was an AAE up until now, I never had a manager who taught me things. I just learned on my own and went with it, made mistakes, learned. I sometimes wish I had a mentor or teacher who guided me. I’m already an account group sup but I want to do better and learn. Do you recommend getting a mentor?
