🧐 reviews for this one are terrifying.

Thank you for the recs! I’m leading a very large team right now with the majority of the team being older than myself. I have 2 team members who seem to take issue with this. And in some instances are being downright disrespectful towards me. I think I’m being too nice and flexible to try and make them more comfortable but that approach doesn’t seem to be helping. And I don’t like escalating these things to the MD because that makes me feel like I can’t handle these things on my own. I think it comes down to needing to sharpen my leadership skills. Thanks for the recs. Might just order all of them!

Anything by Patrick Lencioni. I would start with 5 Dysfunctions of a Team. His books are easy reads with practical steps to implement!

If you’re succeeding on all the right metrics (i.e., leadership loves you, clients love you, you’re participating on pitches, you’ve brought in clients, and you’re set up to inherit a book of business), but you’re still not super into it, being promoted to income partner won’t change things, right? Worth sticking out to see or jumping to go in house at a pre-IPO, late stage startup you find super exciting and interesting?

Still not seeing location in the post window when turning it off.

I just received an offer within the industry and I'm excited to join. That said, they have come in at the bottom of my range (I said $320k when I started talking with them in December, and upgraded that to $350k based on market movements since then) I'm particularly bothered by the clawback on my bonus payments until my LTIP kicks in. Below I'm attaching my redacted offer letter and draft response. Looking for feedback on my response (whether reasonable, any improvements). Thanks.

Got an offer at KPMG w/ 30% increase at mgr and I’m a manager at Deloitte (going up for SM next year) …thoughts moving Deloitte to KPMG? should I stay or should I go? I’m worried because I don’t hate Deloitte (the people are great and I have tons of support)…I’d have to start over at KPMG and no guarantee I’d even go up for Director as experienced hire.

So I’m currently in an industry job and have a new consulting gig lined up to start mid-March. I just received my bonus letter which will be paid out in full at the end of February. I know the general rule is “wait until the $ hits your account to give notice,” but if I do, I won’t be able to give a full two weeks before I have to leave. Is there really a risk in giving notice to my current company before the bonus money is officially in my account?
