Need honest advice. Been on a project for 2 years as a sub to Consulting firm X. Team lead is from consulting firm X. New member from consulting firm X comes in couple weeks ago. New member plays similar role as me. Team lead rolls off project and replaces new member as team lead. Is it wrong to feel like I should have that role? I’ve often been seen as the co-lead to this project & often times leading the team together but now I feel like I am not good enough... CONT.

I work client side and had a woman in my team just put in her notice because she got an offer from another company for much more than she’s making here. Is $60k for a fully remote mid-level (3-5yrs exp) design position reasonable? If I rehire at the same salary will I get someone who will feel underpaid? It’s a state org so the benefits are amazing - but I don’t want to find myself in a situation where someone feels under valued from day 1. Thoughts, creative fishies?

I had an email for a SA role in the Capital Project Services team at PwC UK inviting me for a screening call and asking for salary expectations. I gave a range (£70-75k)and made clear that the salary was negotiable. Got a reply back by the recruiter saying my application was rejected, but the portal says candidate withdrew. Is this normal - I'm a little annoyed that it would be rejected for this reason when I was clear about negotiating?

I’m an introvert in strategy consulting, working in US, born in India. I find it difficult to host client meetings - how to drive conversation, fill in the pauses, and help drive the group move towards next steps consensus. It’s not that I don’t know how, it’s that I doubt myself, and my language skills. I see some other SC/Ms just repeating what others said, and just talking too much of what’s already known - and they are appreciated. How do I reach a stage where I am able to do this better?
