In general you should shoot for total compensation (salary + bonus) around 1/3 of what you bring in for the company. That’s hard to estimate without knowing the billable rate.. but take 2,000 hours and multiply it by what you estimate their billable rate is (or standard in the area/industry) and divide that by 1/3 and that is a fair salary/salary + bonus compensation structure.

Depends completely on the firm and the type of work. A fair salary is what market will pay. DM me.

2,000 hours billable requirements is more than mine and we are at the Cravath scale with an extra tier of bonus for people who actually bill 2000. (So if you billed 2000 you'd make double the standard bonus for your year, if you bill 1700 you get one bonus). But we are in a bad market, so there is that too.

I’m thankfully hitting my hours, but my firm keeps passing non-billable work my way.

I want to be a team-player, but I believe that others need to step up to the plate.

Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!

Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
