Do you stay at a good firm with a good reputation where you are siloed in a back office role with no growth or go to a lesser known firm with less track record and opportunity to learn and grow? I’m in an extremely operational role and want to leave but the benefits down the line could be grand. How do you evaluate a decision like this?

I think you know the answer to this one...the type of work you do is always more important than the brand. You do good, and the brand name opps will come to you in time.

Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%

For people who recently lateraled, how did you go about negotiating a signing bonus? For context, I’m a rising 6th year in the finance group. I was approached about the position directly, so the firm isn’t paying a recruiter if they hire me. Any advice would be appreciated. It would be to go from a V20 to a V10 (not Kirkland). I don’t have competing offers as leverage, but I also wasn’t actively looking to leave
