Considering offer from large media company senior analyst role offering $105K. However I’m up for promo at my firm and could approach $100K. Is it worth staying in consulting for higher comp growth?

You should ask for a bigger bump

YOE? If you are 3+, you could get a bigger comp bump than 105k for leaving your company

When are you up for promo? Generally, I'd stay, unless it was an ideal exit role-wise. Your next promo will probably be bigger than whatever you would get at the media company, unless it is Netflix.

@M2, I’m up for promo in May. I feel like the role is great but probably not worth compensation growth sacrifice

Dude after 2 years at Accenture I got an offer for 140k. Stay at Deloitte until you get 150k and above is my recommendation

Wrong question. Do you want to work in media or in consulting? Six figure income money is important but not the sole factor.

The good news is 100k is a strong foundation. I have 5-10 people in consulting reaching out every week. Basic story is they didn’t like consulting, but have great experience and want to take their salary with them. Really tough for us as we get flooded with this background; ironically they’d have made more in tech. I really have trouble with cultural fit given the person leads with “I worked a job I disliked for 5 years instead of applying to your organization from the start.” The above may or may not describe you- pleased dont take offense either way. I merely want to point out a trap I see people fall into

Maybe

You can probably lower your expectations on the promo bump

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them.

What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?
