Post-Performance review (went amazingly well, immensely positive on all marks), my manager told me HR said my raise is capped at 2.75% this year which at the rate I'm being paid is barely anything...
For those who work in black box comp big law - how do your firms adjust when the market raises the typical scale? Do you get a bigger raise at reviews or do they do an adjustment eventually?
Does anyone work for Pepsico? Position is Senior Manager in PMO Role with TC 200K in Dallas. Does anyone work there and how's the career progression looking like (promotion to Director)? Is it possible to relocate to either Chicago or New York?
This may be a stupid question, but when using an offer as leverage for a pay raise at your current job do you need to have the offer in hand and have gone through all the background checks, etc.? As opposed to just a verbal offer or email? I guess the answer is yes because you should be prepared to leave if they say no.
I was making 99k at current employer and got an offer for 140k but no promotion with a competitor...should I take?
I got turned down for a raise and promotion request today because while I’m “doing an amazing job and killing it” they don’t have the money to give it. Can I come back and ask for a lower amount?
Uncle D is curbing promotions this year and I learned yesterday that my otherwise “sure thing” promotion from C to SC was quashed. No one else in my group was promoted (at any level). Considering jumping ship but not sure how that will go without the SC title. Can I explain to recruiters that I “should” have been promoted? Or is that a cop out?
How much money should you make to raise 1 kid in Manhattan? Some factors: public school, 2 or 3 bedroom apartment
I’m so confused. I tried to have a conversation with my manager regarding taking on more responsibility and getting a promotion and he basically shot it down and said we all have the same objectives. Just giving you more responsibility does not mean you’re growing more. We all do the same job in the investment process. I’ve never felt more gaslighted or more discouraged after a promotion conversation. Is this a common experience ?
How do you get a promotion? Did you ask for it? Did someone above you leave? Did your boss offer it because you deserved it? ￼￼
I do like the work..but I know I’ll be paid atleast 35K more if I leave..and not sure if the next promotion will happen sooner than 3 years..leave or stay? Don’t have much partner or leadership support but not in a bad book as well
Hi 🐠 Fam: Accenture compensation and promotion results will be available this Wednesday. Apologies in advance for hijacking the traffic. Some of us may need your moral support or referral. Cheers! 🥂
Year end meetings for most groups at KPMG tomorrow and things expected to be very tight promotion wise.
What's your office promotion day venue?
I applied for Global Entry in India 14 months ago. I tweeted a complaint to passport seva and got this response “clearance from MHA and MoF not received”. Possible to raise an official complaint? TIA!
Going to law school next year, also been told that I'm up for promotion to senior next year (been working almost 2 years). Is it worthwhile to stay for the shot at getting promoted? If I leave early I'd just spend the next 8 months studying for CPA. The partners in my office know I'm leaving and I'm wondering if that'll factor into my promotion.

How do you balance the perceived bias towards extroverts in consulting? ATK culture is shifting towards being more fun, social, informal & collaborative. What does that mean for introverts?

Has anyone done a AWS loop interview for a BD role? Got one coming up and a two page writing assignment and wanted to see if anyone had any experience with that seeing as most of the posts I see are around the Solutions Architect/Engineer loops. Thanks in advance!
I want to resign but don't want to share the reason. It's too personal and I'm not in a space to talk it out with my managers. Should I just drop a resignation email and awol? Any suggestions? Project recently ended so team has no dependency on me at this point.
Had final round last week. Recruiter reached out 3 days ago saying they want an additional interview and a coordinator will reach out to schedule but haven’t heard anything. Too early to follow up?
What does the parentheses at the end of name, which is some combination of (B / G / Y / R) stand for? In my zoom calls, some have the he/she/they pronouns after their names, others have these abbreviations. Thanks!
If I were in MBB would there be less travel? I feel like I’ve gotten the impression that maybe bain/bcg travels a little less. Any truth to this?
Interviewing for a “specialist” position at a well funded startup. Any idea on comp / equity expectations? NYC based fin tech. <2 YOE
I’m in a smaller town that has a big trade show coming up where I’m setting up a booth. Has anyone done his with success? What made it successful? Did you do anything special other than stand there?
I’m in process for the green card and will likely get it next year. Should I wait to apply for MBA next year when the green card is approved? Does it make difference in success rate if I apply as a foreign citizen (Chinese) vs. a green card holder?
I know it’s been repealed, but I’m curious to hear what other advisors thought of the fiduciary rule. I’m new to the industry and think it makes sense frankly. Prevents bad FAs from ripping off their clients.
Any MBB fishes working in life sciences sector? Would appreciate it we can have a quick chat about the type of work / skill sets / experience required before applying. Thank you!
1st yr, been putting away 18% of pre-tax income to 401K (-27% return). Have $3k to invest, what would you recommend? pay towards $4k loan, increase contributions, roth ira?
Is SM rank fairly similar across all the big4s, in terms of factors like work responsibilties, salary, market value, etc?
I’m a 2016 grad making $120k in a small to mid-size regional firm. I’m based in Nashville. My firm’s management is trying to survey other small to mid-size regional firms to get a feel for where the comp is now, especially in light of the big law increases that are making headlines, and to see just how far below market we may have fallen. Any additional data points from smaller regional firms (especially if you have a presence in Nashville or across the SE) would be appreciated! TIA
Okay so I recently got into Booth off the waitlist (so so stoked, my first choice) with no scholarship but have accepted an offer to Tuck with a 30k scholarship. Post MBA goals are MBB. Leaning hard on Booth but is there any chance they’d swing a scholarship at this point in the game?
