Congrats. I did internal audit and compliance for 5 years before I switched (very fortunate) to a front-office role. Having been on both sides, I realized how awful (boring, not intellectually challenging) my old job was.

Grass is Greener on The Other Side Syndrome - Advice Needed

I’m a 24 year old man with a 27 year old gf, have been dating a year and a half and we live together since January (in a house I own alone).

This will sound obnoxious but is the heart of the issue. I am very intelligent and always have been growing up (skipped years in school, currently doing my second part time masters and have been a straight A student my whole life). I am also a very high performer in work with high aspirations…

I am so tired of Deloitte allowing bias towards MDs. Only because you are not an equity partner, your voice is automatically muted, you can contribute but you don’t get to decide. The minute a senior manager gets promoted to a principal, he gets on top of an MD with 15+ years experience and treats you like he is your boss. I mean this is a cast system at its best! I can’t wait to leave this firm, COVID can’t end fast enough.

The partner I have worked under for about six years is retiring. I’ve assisted on a portion of his cases for years, but with the retirement, many of his cases are being transferred to me. My personal caseload will essentially double because of the transition. I am in billable law so this means more hours to bill and work towards my goal/bonus, but do I have grounds to ask for an increase in base pay as well? I make $110k-California insurance defense averaging about 2100-2200 hrs annually. TYIA.
