85k, nyc

With flatmates?

82k in DC

170 Boston

$130k nyc

I didn’t feel comfortable living in NYC until I was making $120k. But that was years ago, inflation, rent increases, and tax increases make that $120k worth a lot less.

Hi UK Fish, going into a promotion (from C to SC) and raise discussion tomorrow at a boutique consulting firm. Currently at 62.5k. Bonus was up to 10% but all I got was a measly 2%, slow pipeline maybe but I wasn't told why (will raise tomorrow). A recent acquisition has resulted in losing our annual xmas week off and a learning budget of 1k. I know for a fact that last year they were looking to hire SCs at 70k. Is a base raise to 75k a fair ask?

I’m coming up on my manager promotion in the next couple months, but have gotten an IA Manager offer with great pay bump/yearly bonus/RSUs at a decent size public company. Role scope will be both SOX & Operations, will this be a good path to Controller/CFO? I don’t want to get stuck in IA forever, but I would think the level of operational experience would be good and pivoting out wouldn’t be too hard after a year or two. Thoughts?

Thinking about an early career "reset" but a bit apprehensive. I graduated last year and started with Deloitte in RFA in Sep. and found out soon that I disliked the work. So I had applied to PwC FDD Associate (basically a campus hire) in Feb. and got the offer which I accepted. My logic was that I could start in Mar/Apr and so didn't really care about wasting ~6 months at D, but the recruiter has told me the earliest I could start was July. Not sure if worth trying to come in as an A2 instead.
