Senior associate in the big 4 currently working on huge finance transformation project. This has given me a ton of stakeholder management experience and really put me in the deep end in terms of workload and client engagement. My question is, what's the best way to pivot for a relaxed high paying industry role? What type of roles do you more experienced consultants pivot to when you feel burnt out with your work and want to take on a completely different role in industry without a salary cut?

I’m planning to put in my two weeks in late dec/ early Jan (waiting for a work visa to transfer to the new job). I’m trying to lay low but I’m about to roll off my current project and a manager I really liked working with has already called dibs to staff me in a very visible/ great role in Jan with a client he says is very important to him. I don’t know how to tell him not to pitch me for this without revealing that I might be leaving soon. Hate doing this but don’t know how not just ‘go with it

Interviewing tomorrow and the company has communicated their intention to make an offer by the end of next week. 1) would you take this offer so close to busy season; 2) is the quick hiring decision a red flag? Enough to steer clear of position? It’s a promotion to manager for me and - little over 25% base pay increase.

I work as a Financial Analyst for a Mortgage Originator and Servicer. I am trying to make a move to FP&A (preferably tech) as my interest lies there.

I have networked before with people in FP&A but was not able to get an offer so went for the job I am in currently.

In negotiation with a PE firm. Is it typical for firms to throw a low ball compoffer ? They started the discussion with comp offer based on a 1 level below the role. Told them they were not at market based on Heidrick’s research. They acted like it would be difficult for them to meet it especially since they are a new fund but they’ll see what they can do. Wonder if this is typical for PEs as a strategy. My interviews have gone very well - they have told me they really like me

I just left BigLaw as a mid-level for a generalist in-house role. It took me over a year of searching because I was a litigator in a niche practice, so most companies didn’t want me. My focus in the new role is developing general skills - contracts, transactions, partnerships, IP, etc. - but I don’t want to stay at this company for long, because the pay is subpar for an in-house role at my seniority. What’s the minimum amount of time I can stay before reasonably applying to other in-house roles?
