Been getting approached by multiple recruiters for boutique consulting firms, and salary expectations never seem to align (mine are too high). I’m an experienced A in S& up for promotion fairly soon, which is why I benchmarked my salary expectation to SA level (140k base - even gave a slight discount there). More details: I’m happy where I am, with no great desire to move. Should I generally be setting lower expectations? What would your considerations be?

I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640.

I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?

I build products used by many users but had a project added where my team will build an app only for one client. If it’s successful, it may be marketed to similar clients. I am now working as a project manager for this - where the client asks for something and we just build it. It’s completely white glove and will not scale. When I communicate this to executives, the response is “just build what they want”. I’m losing sense of purpose and motivation.
