Any tips for figuring out a day rate at a senior account level? Had seen the tip of adding 30% to salary (with the expectation of getting lower). Is there any right formula? Thank you!
Should I go to Booz Allen as an “Associate” for about 50% more pay? I’m a SA at 70k.. Worst part is that I must move 3 hours away and must be on client site at all times, while KPMG is super flexible and I wfh all the time even before Covid. Also, I feel like “branding” wise it might be a downgrade. What is the KPMG equivalent to Associate at Booz? What is the typical YoE for Booz Associates? Any Booz/ex-Booz folks on here to help give direction?
What kind of interview questions does a recruiter ask vs a creative director? What’s the biggest difference? Just got into the industry so need a bit of help prepping for interviews, thanks!
Let’s say they make work from home permanent, what will they do about pay structure across areas where there are different cost of livings? Let’s say you are hired out of New York as the same level as someone in Houston? Will the Houston employees get bumped up or NY employees get bumped down over time? Looks like the real winners here may be those in high paying areas such as New York and San Francisco. They can move to areas now with low cost of livings and make a killing! Thoughts?
After a year of being extremely underpaid, my boss gave me a 30% raise I didn't ask for. Is that normal? Or super generous?
What is your approach when a recruiter reaches out even if you’re not actively looking for exit avenues? What’s your strategy for maintaining that point of contact for the future?
What's Hill Holiday like? Thinking of a strategist role there in the small NYC office? Is the Healthcare work good?
There is no reason to take your foot off the gas. Leadership thinks it’s done enough because it put out a video about D&I headed by a Karen. Diversity still means white woman or Indian male. Continue to agitate. Document what your PPMD / leadership/ firm have promised about diversity & what they’ll do to support Black & African American employees. If they put out a 12 month roadmap, make sure you’re there 12 months + 1 day later holding them accountable to what was promised.
With all the travel, it is easy to turn into one of those people who "get turned on by elite status". Then, every so often that status scores you an amazing upgrade in a beautiful city...
Recently exited to corporate as a manager in a strategy role. The place is great, but I realize I don't have dedicated folks to make slides for me similar to consulting, and end up making quite few on my own (which is not the most efficient - since it has been a while since I made slides e2e with the formatting et. al). When one tends to apply consulting rigor into the process - this can get quite time consuming. Anyone else face this? How did you handle it?
A question for those in coverage teams at Bulge Brackets: Does your team have an MD/Director who specializes in M&A for that sector? ie, in a Healthcare team, an MD who only works on Healthcare M&A
Has anyone here ever successfully complained about the performance rating and bonus their MD gave them at the end of the year? What's the best way of going about it without killing your career?
Just started a job & strongly dislike it. Nothing like they said it would be in my interviews & weeks of deciding & conversing. Travel is ridiculous (10 hrs on Mon & Thurs) + mind numbing work. Help?
