Consulting

Bored spending time on bench as senior and biting nails about promotion year. Interviewed and got manager rank for "really" good company. Take up the offer or negotiate with partner?

In a similar boat, but haven't started applying yet. Thinking I'd wait at least for the bonus. Depends on the pay bump and the company, OP. Mind sharing the company name?

About 20% bump and helps me start as manager soon. Thoughts?

Haha alright. Consulting or Industry? If consulting, is your end goal to stay in consulting or move outside?

Industry. I'd never regret going to that company for sure. Problem is my promotion and growth trajectory might hurt in two years in industry

Doesn't matter OP. You'll figure out some other way later. I'd take that offer up for sure!

Nice! I'm at an M&E client right now. What group is the offer from (you can be vague) and what's the base $? I know a few consulting --> M&E folks that have been at my client for 2+ years. Can share some of their insights if you give more info (again go ahead and stay vague)

@EY does your company offer any specials re: student loan refi? For example Deloitte gives an additional 0.25% off Sofi. Kinda not sure if I should be refi-ing now, considering I’m looking at potential $75k -> $100k+ raise if I end up at EY in a few months. Trying to take advantage of low rates while they last tho, not sure what they’ll be like in ~2-3 months time
