Heard I won’t be promoted this cycle and also got an offer from my client for a 20% raise, which was roughly what I expected with a promotion. I like my job now. What would you do if you were me.

20% isn’t all that much if you won’t see YOY growth like in consulting. That’s literally two years to catch up (assuming you get promoted in one) and industry averages 2-4% raises in a good year

like

2% raise if you joined close to year end isn’t bad. What form are you at? 5-8% is a pretty average year over year growth for most consulting firms factoring in promotions

Depends. How much do you make now / are you post MBA?

3.5 years experience. No MBA. I make decent money already, but the 20% would be nice. The role would be more technically challenging which is a big plus, but I also enjoy the consulting aspect of different clients/projects. Very conflicted.

Any thoughts on how I can leverage this offer to get a match from my current firm? Keep in mind I wasn’t actively searching for another offer.

In a tough situation and need some advice. I’m an audit associate who got passed up for senior promotion this year, but senioring a busy season engagement. There is another senior that is supposed to be on the job, but he hasn’t been staffed on the engagement the past couple weeks and is off this week. I now have the full responsibility of this engagement on my hands and feel like it’s pretty unfair considering I got passed up for promotion and am not getting paid to be a senior. What do I do?

Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?
