Bcg3 what is it with KPMG. I don’t get it they either reject or don’t interview candidates that go to better places. Thought it should be the other way around. Not once have I gotten an interview at KPMG. I got an interview at bcg even. Just makes no sense

So if the base was 270k, how much was the bonus and equity you were being offered for a director role? I ask this because I have also interviewed for these roles and had two opportunities which went far enough to reveal the package.

I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.

Any suggestions as to what I should start with?

I’m having major buyers remorse on my new role. On paper it aligned with my experience, now that I’m 3 months in it’s become a living hell. Part of my issue is my director (no manager or lead in between) has no time for any of us analysts all 3 of us hired within the last 6 months. It’s frustrating seeing so much criticism yet getting little to no help - and I’m pinpointing 90% of my issues here to my director who is without a doubt either on uppers, or a sociopath….continued in comments

But the offer which is in pipeline will be of 28L and it's a Product based company from USA getting expanded in India.

I have deadline till 14 Dec to accept the retention offer

I used to be “stuck” in a cycle of unhappiness:

- Grinding through the week.

- Getting the “Sunday Night Sucks” feeling because I’d be back in the grind on Monday.

I wasn’t stuck.

I kept making the same choices over and over again.

My choices were making me unhappy.

That realization changed everything and today I’ve created a much better life for myself.

I want to share how I did it with you.
