I want to get an offer from another firm to get EY to match. (1) If I go through the process with another B4 and then tell them I’m staying, does that become a black mark on my record if I apply for another job in the future? (2) Should I tell my referral contact about my plan?

I would approach your partner and say you have been looking at Market research and it seems that the salary for your role is x. Look at https://www.levels.fyi/. If EY is smart they will match. The cost to find new talent is huge - HR time, interview time, onboarding time. It is far easier / cheaper to keep someone

If I were the one referring you, you got an offer, and the stayed and I found out that was the plan all along I’d be pretty ticked.

To be honest...they will not give you a raise just because you think you deserve it (aka market level). People are more successful when you have a offer in hand. They do try to give you a larger raise when you do have a competing offer (dont reveal which company, just the amount) but many of the times they come close but never beat the competing offer...also once they are forced to give you a raise your future raises might be less since they try to level salaries across the levels. If you really love where you currently work and are seriously considering leaving due to the salary, then have a honest conversation with your partner early in the year since a lot of the salary is confirmed and closed like mid year I think...

Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
