Hi, I have an offer from IQVIA Management Consulting - India Practice and they are offering a 30% pay hike. I am also due for promotion at my present firm and the results should be out in a week or 2. Should I go ahead with the offer?

Negotiate with them on the expected salary or ask them to wait

Any suggestions on the work culture at IQVIA or type of projects

Hard to assess your situation without knowing your offer pay package vs. expected pay package from the promotion. 30% bump means little at lower levels since the work opportunities you get are more important

Wherever you feel you will be less comfortable :)

I am almost 32, been w my partner for years & want kids eventually. In a perf world, we’d start trying at about 35 or so. I want to get a promotion before any leave & think I’m on path to achieve that by ~35. If willing to share, I’m looking to hear experiences w freezing your eggs (for better or for worse). A few friends had fertility problems, unsuccessful IVFs, & now I’m paranoid. I know everyone is different & I’m not looking for med advice, but would like to hear others’ experiences on this

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.

I live in a HCOL city and am still not being paid enough to save/live . I have all of the tools/ skill sets to leave consulting and go into big tech . Before going out to market myself and get a new job should I even ask D for a raise ? I’m frustrated because I’m adding a lot of value to my current engagements and I think I’d have a good business case for a raise. On a side note I see people leaving left and right here which is not a good sign!

Up for manager promotion next year. Any disadvantages if I leave now instead of waiting another year until I become a manager?

I feel jerked around by my team, as they keep telling me I will be promoted/have more responsibility, every few months. When I follow up, I am usually told, “but you have more responsibility now; no need to make it official”. Not sure what to believe any longer. They said they have put forward a case for my promotion now. I want to believe them this time but feel like a fool when I think back to some of the earlier conversations. Should I bring those conversations up, or just smile and saythanks

She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
