My department had some turnover in leadership and I am meeting with my new lead for a 1:1. Any advice? I’m not as close to him as I was to our old lead, but now he is responsible for my promotion etc
What comp can we expect to target after 2 YOE? I’m not miserable in consulting but don’t think I get paid enough. With my promotion in a month, I’ll be hitting 100k and I want to only leave if I can get 110k or more (going for strategy, PM, and a few startup roles). Is that realistic? whens the best time to leave for max comp in the long term?
To all consultants out there: I am rather introvert and quite confcall - how did you learn to boost your confidence? Culturally I come from a region where self promotion is seen negatively. You always down-play.

Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean? TIA.

EY moms (not based in CA) - Has anyone taken an unpaid LOA on top of parental leave + 3 weeks of vacation to extend their leave to 6 months?
Finished my MBA and recieved a Senior Consultant offer from EY (3YOE). The pay (90 base+ 10 signing) is what I was making in manufacturing ops pre-MBA (with a guaranteed raise of 10% every year). Negotiating the pay right now but is it worth switching to consulting and taking this "pay cut"? Is the big4 grind worth?

Switched from consulting (1.5 YOE) into a more technical role but now I’m at the same level as new grads. Still higher paid than consulting. Did I make a wrong move taking a step down?
Any advice for negotiation? I made the mistake of letting slip my current salary to the recruiter and now I’m in final rounds at FB and the recruiter disclosed the salary for the position. It seems to be quite below industry average based on Glassdoor and other sources, but I know once given the salary it’s hard to negotiate at FB. I recently got a title change at my current company, and possible salary increase, so I was thinking of using that to counter. Never negotiated before!
