Stay at Deloitte as an M and try for SM promotion in 2023 or try to level up now at another firm? Current base is $185K with 12 YOE. M&A IT. I know M to SM moves across firms are tough. Assuming I can make the transition for argument’s sake, should I invest my free time in the holiday season into making the transition? Reasons for moving: Cut down M to SM timeline by a year or two, potentially increase my pay from $185K to the mid $200s.
I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
My Experienced Associate (new A2) thinks he deserves at next level ratings for all of the PwC framework dimensions. How do I better explain that he worked on associate level tasks and did them well, but would need to take on more senior level responsibilities for me to be comfortable rating them at next level? I’m an A3 up for promotion.
Strategy Consultant - Currently making $175 base as a 3yr Sr. Mngr. Very happy w my current firm, however I’v had multiple recruiters reach out w/ 200+ base roles. Any advice on how to negotiate a raise at the current firm without burning any bridges? Do I need to have a counter offer in my back pocket?

A1-A2 tax, 6% raise and 3% VC. Thoughts?
M/23/Cleveland OH/50k with about 3 years of experience. Reaching a critical point of utilization (I'm at about 140 billable hours a month) and considering asking for a raise. What should I aim for?
Are any of you CDs that were promoted to GCDs at small to mid-size agencies where the creative department is not technically divided into groups? If so, what added responsibilities were assigned to you with the promotion? I don’t work at a large agency with the traditional pyramid structure of a GCD having multiple CDs on specific accounts reporting to him/her. I work on 14 accounts.
Considering exiting my first consulting team for a lateral into a smaller firm/practice (boutique to boutique): same work, same city, +20% raise. What were some of the questions that helped get others off the fence when considering making the first jump? Love both teams, long-term trajectory is very similar - but, it seems like I simply have to jump to get an add-on raise. Appreciate any insight folks have.
What r the chances of a person who’s only had in-house experience for 7-8 yrs to lateral into Biglaw? I have had pretty rich experience for in-house (leading internal investigations, directly reporting to management on risks/legal issues, etc.). I recently moved to NYC (my company’s headquarters) but would love to go into Biglaw. Promotion seems to be an uphill battle at my company unless u r from Biglaw. How to start networking and get my foot in the Biglaw door?
Reasonable wait time on a Rolex explorer 1? No established relationship with an AD. Would be looking to purchase in the fall after promotion (fingers crossed)

I took a new job in order to move across the country for my husband's promotion and I hate my new job. The role sold to me by the recruiter and company leadership is not at all what I am actually doing. I am so overworked it's unreal. At first I thought that maybe I just sucked, even though I'm a seasoned sales professional with 11 years experience, but then I found out that I have 227 accounts vs the 35 & 64 that my counterparts have. Do I go over my boss's head and discuss with leadership?
I am grateful for what I make. I made $5K/year pre-tax in my first job and currently make >30x. That doesn't mean I shouldn't be disappointed by my raise that doesn't even beat inflation.
Moving into an ACD role and being asked to lead the team, and feel like I’m getting my first lesson in dealing with difficult creatives. I’m trying to help get a project over the finish line and the creative is extremely difficult with taking feedback. I’m trying to put myself in their shoes - the new ACD who used to be my peer is now suddenly making recommendations and providing feedback, but holy hell. Any tips?
Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
PwC people who recently joined. When do you receive the sign on bonus. I understand the pay cycle is every 15 days. Should I expect to get it in the very first pay check?
Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.
Is Scrum Master a good role to gain experience if you want to break into Product Mgmt/ Strategy at Big Tech?
Struggling with a decision. Just started a new role with good manager and WLB within healthcare technology. But another large tech firm/cloud/software reached out and willing to pay 20% more. Not sure what the WLF is for this other role. Should I take the better paying role?
Anyone know what the Deloitte interview process is like for Consultant and Senior Consultant levels? Does it differ for GPS as well?

Help!!! Struggling to complete my degree. I’ve been in a teaching role at my school since the beginning of the year. I’m at nearly 90 credits of college course work complete. I’m in Texas and there aren’t many options that can get me closer to certification. Any help or advice? I don’t want to lose the role I’m in. It’s literally what I’ve been groomed to do for the past two years. (& yes I’ve been in school during that time.)
Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether. Does anybody else feel the same way? (Contd).
Capital one product manager power day interview coming up. I was told it will be 3 case studies ( analyst, product design, product skills). Anyone have experience with the power day and can provide any pointers on what to expect and what resources I can study in advance? Not sure what type of questions they will pose. Any info is great. Thanks!!
What’s a reasonable salary for a junior associate at a mid-size (150+) insurance defense firm? Is $100k w/bonus at 1900 billable hours fine?
When you have that one mid-level client contact whose job you’re there to do, and they insist on making the similar dumb ‘suggestions’ on every call and wasting everyone’s time
Which firm benefits/insurance should I enroll and skip? Will elect HSA and firm-paid disability insurance. How about employee critical illness insurance or long term care plan?
Considering an offer from Facebook for L5 Manager (Non-tech in recruiting) in Austin (remote). TC started at 178. Now 200 TC which I’m told is top of the pay band. Kinda confused because TC feels low for L5 people manager and pay sounds like L5 IC Austin pay. Any thoughts on if this is competitive or if you get a pay cut for working remote? Data to consider: interviews went really well, currently at Google (considering the move for growth to manage 12-20). No info on lvls.fyi for this role
