I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.

I'm currently a second year analyst heading for promotion at a T2 firm. I'm also interviewing with MBB in the coming weeks. My goal is to apply for MBA programs in a year or two from now. What would be the best work experience for my applications? Would it make more sense to stick with my firm and start taking on more responsibility as a consultant / associate? Or would it make more sense to start from square 1 at a better brand (MBB)

Manager 1. Transfer from audit into FDD (and have to do one more busy season in audit), or leave to a financial reporting job at a large public co for 40% raise?

I feel jerked around by my team, as they keep telling me I will be promoted/have more responsibility, every few months. When I follow up, I am usually told, “but you have more responsibility now; no need to make it official”. Not sure what to believe any longer. They said they have put forward a case for my promotion now. I want to believe them this time but feel like a fool when I think back to some of the earlier conversations. Should I bring those conversations up, or just smile and saythanks

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
