Is the grass always greener. I’m super happy in my current job. I like my coworkers, I get to do the projects that I want, and I have an all around good support network. I have also built my reputation up enough to the point where I have a lot of flexibility and can control how I work. But sometimes it bothers me knowing that I could leave and get a significant raise. Reading fishbowl it seems like everyone chases money regardless of how happy they are currently
What has been a typical annual raise pre-pandemic for tech consulting seniors at EY? 10-12%?
Hi fishes I'm being constantly denied opportunities to grow and being targeted by a female manager for a rating discussion which happened a year ago . She is literally dropping allegations over me in managers meets which are false and some how my coach is also with her. My current year performance is well, with highest quality yet I'm not being considered for promotion.I'm seriously trying to look out but not getting any calls, what options do I have, can I raise this to intigrity helpline ??
What % of a raise can I expect with a 2 rating going from C to SC? Technology consultant

A while ago, my firm gave me great performance review, said I was ready for promo, but didnt have the necessary months at level. Client took the chance, offered me a promo and pay raise. So I left. I have been killing it, everyone agree I am "ready" for yet another promo but need more time and experience for the next level. So client subsidiary offered me that promo and pay raise, and now they are surprised I am leaving, what did they expect? Lol
Thinking about buying the LV Alma BB as a promotion gift - seems like it’s super popular. Any ladies have this bag and do you use it often? Trying to buy a bag that I’ll actually carry around
I actually like PA. Anyone else can relate? I worked in industry and government before joining PA. I made the switch to PA after I was told my raise was going to be 5% after 2yrs of work. Smh
Need advice on whether or not to use an MBA consultant. Any opinions / thoughts appreciated! Situation: just turned down a promotion and quit my job because it doesn’t align with my career goals and was becoming a waste of time. Planning on spending the next 10 weeks studying for GMAT and applying for new jobs/volunteering, then applying R2 for 2021. I have a 3.9 GPA in a non-traditional major (French lit) from a “fake Ivy.” Only M7s I’m interested in are Kellogg and Sloan. (Cont.)
I’m a Senior 2 high performer in Tax and am happy with my current job/coworkers. But I know that if I never leave EY, I’ll be underpaid compared to outside hires. I don’t want to leave EY for another firm, because I don’t want to have to rebuild my reputation and network. The thought has crossed my mind to apply to another Big 4 firm and get an offer from them and bring it to EY to ask for a pay raise (essentially say “match it or I’ll leave”). Has anyone ever done this? What was the response?
In a dilemma- Im applying R1 and one of my managers who I’m going to request a letter of rec from is also who I would need to advocate for me for a promotion this upcoming cycle. Has anyone gone through something similar and have advice on how I should approach this?
Does BNP APAC does background verification before sending offer letter or after sending the offer letter? I have not been asked about the educational certificates yet. They have only asked the PAN, PASSPORT and Current employer salalry slips and promotion letter. P.s - I have recieved the offer letter now. Will they be still doing any background verification or this is done ?
More and more colleagues are claiming that bringing a job offer from the competition is the fastest way to get a promotion from mgr to sr mgr and/to MD, do you agree?
I am from public acctg and a Senior for 5 years. I’ve had this conversation on my promotion to Manager and was told I need another year. I feel demotivated and getting frustrated that they do not see me as someone who can be a Manager.
Any agencies giving raises right now? We keep hearing the same pandemic-related excuse every week for the raise freeze. I was due for a raise when everything shut down last year, took a pay cut for half the year, and don’t know how much longer I can hold out.
Anyone has any good interview coach suggestions?

I am a Manager in Salesforce practice at D and I have 15 YOE and 5 years in Salesforce and at 145k base at D. Is it reasonable to expect a Senior Manager or Director role at pwc or accenture or other top consulting firms with a 30% hike? I took my current role at D at the start of the pandemic and got myself a bad bargain which is why I am looking to move.
