Haha no worries! I got that a lot.. it’s in the cons list as not many ppl know about it now... but who knows in 10 years? 🌠

Dont rush. You put in years of hard work there to get to the track you're on. If you've felt like this for 3 months or 6 months then consider seriously. Maybe check in with your mentor about the timeline of your switching roles in 3 months and see how that goes before jumping ship

12 % sounds low; what’s the total comp like?

Thanks for the insight. I think you are right on that one.

What are you going to do at CFGI? Is it going to be really different than what you do now?

In April/May, through a referral my friend who is a SM there. Then they scheduled 3 interviews for me to speak with 2 partners and 1 SM. Verbally expressed interested in extending the offer but holding off due to covid ... Similar with other big 4 I think

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
