So I received an offer from a digital start up at for a freelance long term contract. The $ was so low as I would be accountable for my own taxes and benefits that I had to request a significant increase. In my email I broke down why I was requesting more $ and where the money would go - which should be more than enough. They got back to me telling me I was rude for to ask for more money directly and should be grateful to have a job offer at all. Would they say that to me if I were a man?

Comp comparison question: First year Director in Advisory (financial services), 10 YOE total - coming up on 8 years with KPMG. Joined as an analyst in 2012 and worked up, never made any “jumps” to competing firms for salary boost, and also moved from smaller market to NYC two years ago - thus wondering if my $165k salary is in line with other new-ish Directors at big 4, or way off the mark. Any comparison points would be much appreciated. TIA.
Our office has been optional WFH for about six weeks. Two partners with the best offices have not shown up a single time during this. Everyday I go into each of their offices to do an hour of work. Really banking on this thing lasting and me adversely possessing a corner office.
