Consulting

If you get an offer from another consulting firm and leverage it to get a raise at your current firm (thereby rejecting the other firms offer), will that forever ruin your chances of ever working for that other firm?

Depends on how you phrase it. That being said, staying is almost always the worst option.

Heard that too, but for me it worked out, but I did switch teams, so that might have helped.

Need advice from moms that make more money than the spouse. I got a great offer for nice raise and career advancement but my husband now feels down saying he will not be able to catch up to me now... He is very supportive and proud of me, he never wanted a stay at home wife and loves that his wife has a career.

Has an offer to join a smaller but growing firm. Will get a decent raise, but I'm concerned about the lack of delivery capability. Seems like the expectation is they want you to be able to do it all, and they brand and technical breadth is not as established. Looks to me its high risk and the reward is just the raise they offer. Anyone has similar experience can share their experience?

From PwC bowl. I don’t think this is a widespread thing but want to unpack the idea of it. PwC is certainly looking at staff utilization for black employees to make sure they are getting put on jobs but that doesn’t mean better jobs. There are no saved opps for minorities, like wtf. And early promotion is definitely not a thing but could naturally happen when given more opportunity. It is insane to me that someone already privileged would even think of doing this to maintain their privilege.
