Asking for advice (work at pwc), I was promoted mid year to manager and a few months later Covid... I’m very thankful to have a job but given the pandemic the pay bump was nothing to be excited about. With the way things are going, I am anticipating no pay raise next year. I’m being paid as a 4th year senior and trying to wrap my head around if it’s my time to leave the firm and go to another firm for more $$. I don’t work an insane amount of hours but not getting paid for my worth.

That’s great! Thanks for sharing! Did you go to industry or another public firm?

Didn’t you get mid year promoted Jan 2020? Why were you paid as 4th year still?

That’s weird. I was promoted and got a 20%+ raise w/ no merit bc covid.

Not sure how consulting firms expect to retain talent out of undergrad if they barely raise pay. Left consulting after 1 year, end of 2nd year and I’m at 180k comp now with friends at D and PWC barely hitting 85. I know seniors at D not even making 100k

I just need to get this off my chest. I went from insurance defense to workers comp because I like that side of the v. and I thought it would lead to a decent pay raise. I wasn't making market value at ID firm and the firm had no more money to give (sometimes had to wait a week for paychecks to issue due to finance problems). After a year at this new firm, I definitely have my bearings of WC and ask for a raise during my review. That was denied and they had their feedback. After about 6 months..

Dear Diary 😉 Covid has made me even more weird than I normally am not to mention very lazy. Let’s see I wake up and just lay there for an hour doing nothing. Then I’ll do some quick naked yoga. Hop onto my first call. Then go take a shower in between meetings. Next onto my next call. In between there is a quick break to make coffee which I gulp in 3 mins flat. Then I FINALLY brush my teeth and do my eyebrows. Back on a call then I’ll put on clothes. Next I’ll scroll on social media aimlessly CON

I am due for promotion next year from S. Con to Manager. I was assured that I would get it this yr but didn't happen and now the partner tells me that it's definitely going to happen next year. I have got an offer with 50% hike from a well to do start up but for the same profile. Should I make the move or should I wait another year? In a dilemma, kindly advice. I was also awarded the president award this time - but I guess that was more like a consolation for not getting the promotion.

Cut a corner too short in a garage and hit a post with my car and It’s about $3000 to fix and will take at least a week. I’m debating paying out of pocket or going through insurance for this. my deductible is $750. Geico gave me accident forgiveness so that means they won’t increase my rates right? I pay $100/ month for insurance right now. I also pay for rental reimbursement in my car insurance but I’m 24 so if I do end up needing a rental car would I have to pay the difference?
