What is the best message when informing the rest of your company that someone was terminated? The backstory is that this employees performance has been struggling, he was put on a PIP, and in recent convos, he’s said that his role isn’t for him. As he is getting terminated due to performance, it feels more amicable now that he knows it’s not working and that he needs to find a new job. Thoughts on message to the rest of the company?

How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!

What reason could I give in my exit interview for leaving the firm? I don't want to burn bridges and want to keep the window open to return. But miserable in this current role.
For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.

Got an offer at a startup with 130 base. I can choose between SF and SLC. I think I’d prefer SLC just because I’m scared about how expensive SF is. How is the gay life in SLC like especially for a 23 yo poc?
Seeking advice: anyone have experience dealing with a meddling sister-in-law (brother’s wife)? She’s constantly overstepping the bounds of what I think is appropriate (I.e., bossing around my elderly mother, getting rid of things without asking my mothers permission, changing my mothers decor). It just doesn’t feel right for her to do these things to my mother/interject in family affairs like this. Understandably brother doesn’t want to get in the middle of it. How to handle this?
[Serious] Lateraling as a first year from my little hell hole to hopefully greener pastures. I have interviews lined up. Are there any questions that you wish you had asked? Any questions that are particularly good to ask my interviewers? First few rounds are with the partners.

Did anyone from big4 recently got interviewed or offered a job at Amazon? These are two different cultures, worried that it may not be the right switch. I am SM4 and being offered L7 Principal-TPM at AMZN. Insights, please...

Anyone got the deets on EY’s TAAG practice- salary and hours? I guess at the S1 level. Been seeing job postings on LinkedIn for both staff and senior level.

We have HHI of 260k excluding bonus. Currently own a house (current value is 440k) with 45% mortgage remaining. Planning to buy a new house of 500k. Combined mortgage of both house would be approx 4.7k per month. We both max out 401k and I normally invest 25k via megadoor roth + 2 529s for both kids. Q is Can I afford new house or should I sell current buy and book the profit since realty mkt is so high and our house has the max value currently?

Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?
