Any tips on negotiating severance package? What’s typical package for a NY lay off? How do we maximize the money we receive? I’ve also read things on the internet that say “don’t sign it on the spot.”
If you are separated from your firm and you are kept on payroll for an additional month to facilitate payout of severance when does the 60 day grace period count start? Is it on the last day on payrl?
KPMG is taking the PWC approach to audit layoffs. Low performers will be separated rather than defining a RIF, but we all know it’s a lay-off by another name.

Any updates on the compression compensation adjustments? Has anyone had their meeting yet?
I’ve recently accepted an ACI offer from Bain in a main office. What is everyone’s opinion on the outlook of Bain 5/10/20 years out? I occasionally hear remarks BCG and McKinsey are widening the gap and this has me questioning potentially re-recruiting. For context, I love Bain and the culture, but this concern paired with slower promotion is a little unsettling.
How much should I expect my salary to change if moving from a higher cost of living city (Chicago, for instance) to somewhere like Texas (Houston or Austin)?
Hi Folks, I am currently working at BCG GS. I am getting an exact similar role at Bain. Now I am unsure if I should make this switch. Any suggestions?

Has anyone successfully negotiated for a salary increase in their existing role without exiting? I like where i’m at, unfortunately the easiest route to get higher compensation is to look externally. Any success stories and how much?
Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
This recruiter is pushing for industry manager positions based on my experience but I don't feel ready for it. Im currently a senior 1. Will it look bad if I decline a manager position just because I don't feel ready?
