Hello fishes. I'm an MBA graduate currently working as a digital marketing professional in a mid size consulting firm with 3 years of experience. I am terribly underpaid in my current org at 5.5 LPA after a recent promotion and annual appraisal. Another mid size consulting firm offered me 7.5 LPA but I am asking them around 9 LPA. Am I asking too much or shall I take the offer of 7.5 LPA? Thank you
Hi Folks, Need opinions from experienced Management consulting folks: Is it a wise decision to leave Deloitte USI Strategy practice for Accenture strategy in Capability Network when I am due for promotion to Engagement Manager? I am getting 40% hike from Accenture CN when my promotional hike in Deloitte is expected from 25% to 30% (my guess). What should I do? Renegotiate / Stay / Switch.
Fresh thread for a rate check amongst us producers? I want a raise but think agencies will scoff. At $1200 and want to bump up to $1300. 17 yrs broadcast/video, some awards, agency, brand and post experience.
Planning on taking 2+ months shared parental leave. Can’t wait to have that length of time with my family, but also pushing for promotion at the same time. Any advice on how to play it/communicate it?
Big4 MD vs a non Big 4 (GT/RSM) or Boutique (CFGI/A&M) Partner. Any thoughts on which is a better path for longer term compensation and leadership opportunities. For context, am a high performing MD - been in top 5 PPMD by book of business in my practice for last 5 years and endlessly waiting to for a Partner promotion. So thinking to move on and try non-Big 4’s.
How do you feel about putting on hold your family expansion plans because of a recent promotion? Do you think it’s a normal thing to do? And if so, how long is the normal waiting period? Knowing that the parental leave is about 6 months!
My wife and I are looking to buy a home in Bucktown close to N Western ave at W Armitage Ave. Any one here living in the area and open to tell more about it? Specifically want to know more about: What is the typical age group here? Is it a good area to start and raise a family? How is the neighborhood? Is it a diverse neighborhood? Also how would you compare this with West town/Wicker park area? Happy to also chat privately or provide more clarity. Home price ~ $650-700k

My one year at first out of college job is coming up, despite conditions - should I still ask for a raise and a formal virtual performance review. (It is a small firm and they will avoid it if I don’t bring it up). The firm has been making the same if not more profits than they usually would. Thanks!
I rarely work more than 5-6 hours a day and I'm kind of dreading the upcoming promotion (aside from the money, which is nice). -Associate
SC to M, promotion in CBO. I was promoted to SC in Aug 2020, and milestone year shows 2024 (4 years). Is this normal I thought SC-M was 3 years and 2 for an early promo. Can anyone suggest if it's even possible to try to get promoted in 2 years? Just don't want to put in extra effort and getting disappointed later.
Deloitte PPMD 🐟, how did the PPMD promotion rules change over last two years? Is it still doable to become partner / principal? It seems that “everyone” is promoted to MD lately.

Shout out to all sisters- I have been seeing a trend of sisters dropping their hijabs to join consulting. The reasoning is mostly along the lines of hijabs are not acceptable in this line of business. I would like to tell you that is pure BS. Yes, there may be some bigots and ignorant people that discriminate, but there are many others who are totally acceptable to our choices. So please dont assume you have to absolutely take it off to be successful. I am a proud hijabi thats been in the industry for 10+ years.

Has anyone tried strattera? I have been on concerta for a few months but don’t love stimulants so wanted to give strattera a try. I’m 4 days in and the side effects are really weird.

Have any of you gone from B4 to independent consulting? What’s stopping you from working with a client directly as opposed to through your firm after a multi-year engagement?
What do you think is the acceptable cutoff time for when it’s no longer reasonable to expect an immediate response to email? I’ve been getting only a few hours of sleep for the past few days. Finally had a night where things seemed quiet and I fell asleep at like 8:45 pm! I woke up at around 6 am to a full inbox and I felt kind of stupid for missing 9 pm emails because that is a really early bedtime (but boy do I feel better this morning!).
