Not dick measuring but really curious on what the % raise you've gotten the past 2 years. Gotten 4% and 3% here and feeling like I'm getting screwed over.
Is there any reason to lateral from one big 4 strategy practice to another other than a comp bump? Working on great projects at great clients right now with a good network, and up for a promo. So not sure I want to risk leaving but didnt receive a raise due to firm performance. Am pre mba and have already switched big 4’s once....
What are your thoughts on this article? I was confused by how an earnest request of how to deal with money matters turned into a "you are sexist and part of the problem" epithet. Interested to hear if others agree or disagree with the approach taken in this article and what I might be missing. https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/my-girlfriend-makes-twice-what-i-earn-i-reluctantly-paid-the-200-dinner-check-for-her-first-promotion-she-just-got-another-one-should-i-pay-again-11627260385
I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬
I’ve been working hard this year, but I’m concerned I won’t get a promotion at the end of the year due to covid (we’ve had severe pay cuts/furloughs at our company). Any advice?
If I accept the promotion to Partner/Principal what's the least number of years I could work without it being a financial mistake. I have an opportunity to do something completely unrelated that's my passion, but I feel like that's the wrong decision when I'm this close. The other opportunity should still be there for 2-3 years
Hello Friends, What is the annual average hike at Deloitte USI for senior consultant in SAP and what will be the hike during promotion to Manager.
Would you move from D to other Big 4 with only 20k raise (115 -> 135k)? Assuming you need to restart GC process from scratch a year after joining
I'm falling apart mentally due to stress causing issues on my mental health, but I'm trying to stay strong because I desperately need a promotion.
Can you negotiate a promotion after the fact, if you don't get it at year end, if your manager and leadership on your team all agrees/supports you? (Not currently in this situation, but curious)
Hello Fishes, Is anyone aware about what would be the average hike percentage this year for the falks getting promotion from associate to senior associate? YOE is 9 and currently having 6.5L fixed. Talking about EY GDS not EY India.
I’m completely checked out and doing the minimum to get by. If I can’t get a legitimate raise, this is my raise to myself.
Does anyone have any “I made it” items they would get themselves to celebrate a big milestone or promotion?
Can I ask my current employer for a pay raise upon graduation with a technical MS degree? If so, how much? Thanks in advance!
McKinsey 🐟s - what are your promotion cycles for generalist, digital and Ops. I have seen some 2018 MBAs, becoming EMs in 1 year 7 months and some are still associates! Confused as a fellow consultant from EY-P
Any “jr” level copywriter who believes that they are mid level and haven’t got the promotion yet? I’m looking for someone to partner up with and apply places in California. if anyone is interested leave your website and I can check it out! Will contact you from there !
You started at a new role/company 2 months ago that is +50% your previous TC, a level promotion, and you’re happy with the team and scope. However you’re also currently in a long distance relationship with a SO you love and have been with for 4 years. The relationship is starting to crack and moving abroad to be with her seems like the best decision to kee the relationship. How would you play this out sirs/maams? Ask manager to work abroad and quit if they reject it? Thx for the feedback 😔
Deloitte advisory folks, when does promotion decisions are made????? Up for M and feeling fairly close to burning out ...
Looking to get some insights in PwC's bonus policies. I have an offer from PwC in their Salesforce practice and the bonus offered is a range of 27% to 35%. But they have not included that bonus % in the offer letter. For those who have worked at PwC, is this a norm? Have you seen them follow through the Bonus payout? Does the bonus % change significantly from YOY? What are the individual objectives/targets that need to be met at the Sr Manager level to earn the bonus?

How do you leave a project when you're about to leave the company? Potential to start a project next week but am anticipating leaving the company with an offer sometime soon.
I’m burnt out on taxes; I wanted to do 10 returns a year, if that. Looking at an accounting manager position with KPMG, from the job description, looks like just accounting and financial reporting. Does anyone know if that is true. Also, how’s the culture at KPMG? Looking in the STL area.
ZS vs. Slalom? Money is very similar for roles at both with focus on LS compliance so just asking for a sense of culture and WLB

All - looking for a referral to the product development and procurement fellow role at Mckinsey. Please dm / comment. Would appreciate your help.
Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
How is Deloitte’s Industrial Products and Construction practice? Got reached out for a tech position in Aerospace and Defense sector and like to learn more.
My friend gave birth 1.5 months early. She kept it on the dl due to some finds in the ultrasound. It’s her first child and he’s in the NICU (developmental issue). I want to send her something but am at a total loss. For any moms here, any ideas? Don’t know if she didn’t disclose earlier because the child’s survival odds are rare (his issue is very rare and there’s not a lot of medical literature on it). TIA
I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.
