Am I underpaid? Analytics Sr. Consultant (semi-technical role) w/ 8 YOE, age 31 - Austin, Tx. With Finance BA and Econ MA from mediocre University. Salary-$90k, no bonus/stock/etc.
Does your sign on bonus require you to work for the company for at least several years? Any way to negotiate out of it?
Big4 consulting salaries: have 5 YOE in consulting, 2-3 in industry, and top 25 MBA. If I come through experienced hire route, can I still aim for the MBA salary bands around 140-170k?
Friend has JD/MBA and 130k in student loans and after 3 months of looking just accepted a job for 72k. That’s a nightmare right there. Really adjusting my desire to go get my MBA now.
Does pre-MBA T2 consulting experience help or hurt for M7 summer internship interviews at MBB? Have heard prior consulting is helpful but have also heard that MBB doesnt like “bad habits” formed at other consulting firms.
The TCS HR asked me to upload all the educational certificates, last hike letters, last 3 pay slips, ID proofs and past work experience letters before the salary discussion. To which I said, I will upload the payslips and hike letter for now as they are required for salary discussion. And will provide other docs post salary discussion based on the out come. Now, she is like "You seem reluctant to share basic information and hence we are not proceeding further".

For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*

About to discuss offer for a secondment abroad. Is there usually room for comp negotiation on these assignments?
I see a fundamental issue with consultant salary/role expectations when exiting. What do you expect when exiting MBB after 3, 5, 7 years post MBA? What's your target (VC, IB, FAANG etc.)?
When you negotiate your comp, do you give them your counter right there on the spot or do you take it back and make it look like you thought through it? I have a number in my head but...

How do you approach a lateral? Started as an undergrad at T2 (EU), promoted to post-MBA level after ~1 year due to high performance. Targeting Bain specifically due to focus and continuing interest in PE work.
Heartwarming diversity on display at the DNC! From Republicans to Democrats, representation from all races - even Northern Marinara Islands got a shout out. Go Joe & Kamala!
Going through one of the phases where I’m hanging on by a thread (and I’m not even frequently traveling right now!!), ugh. Preschool parent visits, rsvps to birthdays and school events...

Lady 🐠 - need advice on recruiting. Been networking very heavily with a company over the last few months. Had an face to face interview with hiring manager a week ago...
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Interviewing for a role at BP, what are they like as a firm to work at? It’d be the commercial/strategy side of the business rather than production. I understand they went thru a major re-org to be relevant for the future energy industry. How’s that going?
Potentially have an offer from a local tech startup. I’m 24, currently make ~$95K base and ~$50K, with an additional ~$20K in profit sharing (so total comp around $160-170K). Offer would likely (cont)
