Got 60K USD when I joined BCG as a PL.

6 months. And joined with 6 months of tenure. Don’t think my tenure mattered. Think it’s the interview performance (and internal push by a friend who knew me) that got me this. Wasn’t offered at first so I asked without naming the amount

I have a weird question. I am splitting my time in 2 tracks of the same project and each track has its own SM. Track 1 SM wants me to escalate against Track 2 SM for he is delinquent is providing some information. This puts me in an uncomfortable situation as I don’t want to sour my working relationship with Track 2 SM (This escalation will sure blow up) How do you handle these situations?

How do you deal with someone who consistently doesn’t contribute to a project that’s supposed to be a shared? I like him as a person but this has now been 2 months of me & my senior strat doing all the work while this other guy rarely contributes because he claims to be busy. I think my boss finally saw this - last time he had us take ownership of various parts, he didn’t even bother adding this dude but I still waste time waiting for him to respond, says he can meet then doesn’t, etc.
