Plenty of MBB people have kids at SM/Principal/AP level and still make partner. Obviously if you take 6-12 months off for the kid you may make partner 6-12 months later, but it doesn't kill your trajectory

May want to also ask in the Moms bowl to see if you get more responses.

I'm a technology senior consultant in a C tiered city (per EY). Rank is Senior 2 about to be senior 3 and base is $85k. Not sure what my raise will be but I'm assuming I'll bump up to $90k+.

I've been with the firm almost 2 years and actually really like it but my spouse has left their job to be a stay at home parent and our income was essentially cut in half.

Are people really getting 30% or higher raises to move to other big 4s? People keep ripping on homegrown getting paid poorly. Thoughts?
