At what salary point did you feel "content" if ever? At $90k, and I've always figured once I got to $200k I'd be "good" and chill out, thoughts on that?

$250k was my number and I felt like there really was nothing reasonable that I couldn't afford

Like PM1 mentioned, it really depends on where you live. If you live in NYC or SF, $250k doesn’t go a long way, but you can live very comfortably in other parts of the country. I would say where I am, the number is around $350k-$500k.

Geography and cost of living come into play as well, but $100k was a big psychological number for me. Once I did that, I started basing it on lifestyle impact more than the raw number personally

So the Promo Board just approved my promo to Associate Partner. It will be effective as of Jan 2. Do you think that recruiters and hiring mgrs will find it sketchy if I applied for new jobs in Jan?

440 odd people cut from Consulting. Partners through to Grads. Almost enough of a pyramid to start up something of their own.

Hi everyone! I know this is a tough time for many facing layoffs. My firm is actually hiring! If you have SaaS implementation experience and a bit of coding knowledge (HTML, JS, CSS mostly), let me know! Happy to provide a referral. DM me for details!

For ladies: Are there any BB or CC creams that cater to our complexion? I love Fenty but think it’s a bit too heavy to wear during the summer days. For reference: I’m 420/430 in Fenty.

So many good people were expendable overnight. Promises made weren’t kept. And, the lack of class in execution has left wounds filled with depression. I hope the billions saved was worth it. Twenty years of loyalty reduced to a six minute script. Twenty years of high performance, sleepless nights for firm imposed project deadlines, and all that chatter about the importance of supporting women and minorities was all out the door in 3 months. Deloitte was better with Englebert.

I was planning the whole year last year, worked my ass off trying to get promoted; didn’t happen; CFL could not provide a valid reason. Now I have an offer and can’t wait to quit. You’d do the same ?
