I’m serving my notice now and super frustrated with how I’m expected to work round the clock on weekends and get chased via paggro emails. The work is piling up and I’m still getting staffed on big deals with extremely tight timelines. Granted, we’re shorthanded but to make matters worse, the partners are very pushy in asking us to recruit our friends (we don’t get any referral bonus btw). One of the partners even joked they’d milk me before I leave. I leave in a month and I honestly can’t wait.


Are people who try to get into a technical industry role from a consulting firm viewed in a negative way? I keep seeing posts about how an interviewer may doubt your technical skills just because you worked at Big4/consulting firm. Is a consulting firm bad way to start a career if you want to go industry? I am particular interested in cybersecurity roles.


Is asking for 1.5x my comp for a role I’m interviewing for crazy and obnoxious?

When I try bring up the question of comp, the executive recruiter I’m working with keeps bringing it back to my current comp and saying “it shouldn’t be a problem”, but I don’t think she gets that I want 50% more than what I’m on. Not sure if that’s a ridiculous ask or not.


Happy 4th everyone! I'm heading into month #3 of my pivot from sales leadership to sales operations. It's incredible how simple-mindedly most recruiters look at a background, but I understand everyone is looking for that 'perfect puzzle piece' for their hiring manager 🙄

If anyone works for a cool company that's hiring their sales ops team please reach out! I've got an unconventional resume but have held roles like head of sales, CEO, sales management, and a few IC roles. Add me on LinkedIn!


I’m currently in a lease admin type role, in commercial real estate. I make a base salary of $50.5K with about $9k in bonuses. I’ve continuously received 7-10% raises over the last 3 years. I anticipate getting a promotion this year and would like to get closer to $60k for my base salary. I’m the only person in my role at the company and have been a key person in developing our team as we look to expand. Is this unreasonable? Is there a normal increase given with promotions? Thanks in advance!

First corporate role and I’m beginning to very much dislike my job and finding it hard to concentrate. Is it a bad idea to quit and focus on what’s important to me in life atm?
