72.5k & 17k signing

What city?

Chicago but I believe offers are the same nationally. This was 2014 start

I know they differ for federal and commercial. Not sure if commercial varies by city and COL.

74K and 10K

No it doesn't Deloitte. Signing bonus differs but not base salary.

72.5k salary, 10k signing. Joined in 2014 in a smaller office than Chicago.

75k, 10k signing Federal

2015 grad

If a job posting states that the salary range for a position is $65,000-$85,000, and you give a range of $65,000-$70,000 for your expected salary. Is it safe to assume that if they were to offer you a position, you would be given an offer within your stated range? Or might they give you more? Also, if they do end up giving you salary between your stated range, can you propose a counter offer of $75,000? Thank you for any responses, I'm somewhat new to salary negotiations and such.

Is this bowl already dead? Assuming that most in this bowl, if not all, are onsite. There are so many situations which are unique to us. For example, no 401k and no PF contribution at the same time, bonus in INR even though our expenses are in USD, and so much more... Am I the only one who's thinking that Deloitte's policies for landed resources could do with an overhaul?


I was invited by former colleagues to join them as a 20% equity partner in a strategy consulting boutique they founded last year. I had expected the next step of my career would be to join a tech startup but with this move my total comp would likely double or more ($800K+). Do I follow my dream or follow the money?

Hello fishes. I'm a MBA graduate currently working as a digital marketing professional in a mid size consulting firm with 3 years of experience.

Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?


How do you mealprep as a couple? My bf hates cooking, so I do it all, and there’s only so much I can cook in my small kitchen on a Sunday. I reached a point where I’m frustrated of having to eat suboptimal meals halfway through the week because mealprep only lasted 3 days, and that if (a) my bf also cooked once or (b) i did not have to share the meals I make, I would be prepped for 5 days. Does point (b) sound selfish to you? What’s the solution?


Hello, Anyone with experience in Logistics & SCM, can guide me for future prospect of the field.

Unpopular opinion: Don't understand what people are loving about Indian Matchmaking I do not find it hilarious and do not find Nadia adorable 🙄
