Hey fishes. I need an advice. I am right now working as Assistant Manager in Big 4 Consulting (CTC close to 25 lacs). I might get a promotion soon and then my overall CTC could be close to 30 lacs (again all estimates). I am planning to do MBA from UK and have got some good offers from good universities.

Wouldn’t recommend doing a UK based mba unless you want to move explicitly to the UK. Your post mba salary will be something like 75k £ which after tax will come to 50k £. After expenses you will be saving 20k £ a year if you’re living in London, not sure if that’s a great ROI given the mba (at Oxford or LBS) will cost you at least 100k £ total. I might consider asking for an office transfer to UK if you really want to move there. That’s the most cost effective in my opinion. Source: lived in the UK for several years.

Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?

How much do titles matter? Finally made the jump to ACD, except I’m brand-side and the company calls it a Creative Lead. I’m thrilled to receive the promotion and take on the responsibility. But at the same time I imagine my agency peers thinking “wtf even is a creative lead?”

Would you take a pay cut and dip in title to go in-house? I feel done with agency life and got an offer to go in-house at a well-known brand. The catch is that it’s about a 10% pay cut and I’d be going from a Director to Manager. And honestly, if I take this offer to my agency I know they’ll automatically bump my title to VP and give me a pay raise. I’m on track for that to happen in Dec. but I’m at the point I’m just worn out but not sure if this is a wise decision in the long run.
