Is there really that big of a difference between 250k and 300k? Maybe focus on your spending?

What level are you?

D1 - If so, then the answer is pretty straightforward. Exceed the signings clip for 2 years and then push to go through LAP and make Band D Partner.

If you're not happy with 250k, you won't be much happier with 300k.. most people would kill to have those means, any additional happiness you derive deceases after your needs are met.

Hey Fishes, Will ECBA (Entry Certificate Business Analyst) certification by IIBA be helpful to me in my career ? My background- * B.E in Computer science * MBA in Systems and Analytics (2019-21) * It's been 6 months I am working as an Analyst- Data science at Infosys

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂

I have 6.5 yrs of IT experience in Testing field. I have worked completely in Agile Delivery Model and have pretty decent understanding of Agile. Recently I completed my MBA in Technology Management as well. I am currently working in Accenture. I am looking for change in my career from QA to Scrum Master or PO kind of role. Can someone in this bowl help me. Thank you in advance

I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP. I have an offer to leave for 60% more to a big 4 + get title bump (associate to senior consultant) but I feel bad. I think this will burn bridges. I love manager, team and WLB. They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help

it’s wild how much casual racism there is in the HBS threads. maybe the reason you didn’t get in despite your top stats is that your essay pointed to the same type of low EQ that goes with complaining about how unfair it is.
