Has anyone ever taken a gig then cut out early for a higher paying gig but with notice? Guessing it's a good way to burn bridges, but what if gig is nearly 2x rate you're making and co 1 won't budge?

Always take the money. Do it tactfully, thank the OG spot, but tell them it’s best for you/your fam/etc. to pursue the better opportunities. Agencies will drop you in a heartbeat if they lose the account you’re working on, so you have to look out for yourself.


Truth is a good place to start. Talk to your manager/CD or whomever brought you in. Let them know it’s nothing to do with them, but the opportunity is too good to pass up. Not saying they won’t be disappointed at first, but let them know how much you appreciate the work you did with them and it’ll smooth out in the end.

Saw this and thought it was interesting. I know this is supposed to be the average in the United States, but doesn't everything seem really low? I was making more working full time as a grad student?

I’m a Deloitte alumni. The attached image is on brand. While there are pockets of excellence & collegial respect at D - overall, D culture is toxic, particularly for people of color, Black people, & non-binary people. So, if you fall in any one of those groups, & you are told/wondering if you are being “sensitive” or “overreacting” to what you’re seeing,hearing, & sensing-I can assure you that you aren’t. Get what you can from the firm (experiences/certs) & pivot to something better.
