What is the appropriate way to provide your two week notice? Should you have a conversation with your coach or project leads beforehand, or should you just go on your internal company page and hit that resign button and go through whatever processes you are prompted to do?

My tax accountant is scratching his head.

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?
