What are jobs and companies that require similar skills like consulting, digital marketing, etc. but have excellent WLB and are more slower paced...?

Also the longer I progress in my role, the more I have to focus on sales and I hate sales so much 😢
Here's a situation. I have been selected to join as a manager at a big four entity. While the HR seems to be fine with the hike and the overall package, the senior/management in the team/project seems to be unhappy with the same. Not sure if the offer might go ahead with a lower package or might not go through at all. The general understanding is that the HR takes a call on packages. Is it different at the big four?
Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?

Hi fishes I'm being constantly denied opportunities to grow and being targeted by a female manager for a rating discussion which happened a year ago . She is literally dropping allegations over me in managers meets which are false and some how my coach is also with her.

Received an offer as an SC at BCG Platinion for Enterprise Architecture at 145k + 5k sign on. I would like to negotiate up to match the average on Glassdoor at 155k, however, never have negotiated before. Any advice on negotiation process, points, and tactics? I have 4YOE in consulting, an MS degree, and hard tech skills. I think they lowballed me a bit and want to work it up.
Need help on weighing an offer: Currently SC at 115k ~ (+25k retention), offer from Capgemini Invent at 170 for M level.. not sure on sign on bonus. Worth the switch? Any reviews of capgemini?
Craziest stories about people getting fired?
Does higher vault ranking (v10-30 compared to v80-100) open more doors for corporate in-house opportunities for a senior associate? If chambers practice area rankings and expected billable hours are similar and they offer the same DPW pay scale, does it matter less? Is it better to stay at/lateral to a firm where you might be able last longer to learn the necessary skills? Any personal anecdote or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
