I think daily I would like to go backwards, and my pay probably isn’t even too far out of senior range. I so miss just grinding out work and not dealing with annoying ass clients all day or partners constantly asking where stuff is knowing we are understaffed at every level. It’s like you’re getting attacked from every direction all day.

It sounds like you don't want to crash into the Peter prinicple.

Yes but why take a step down in title, being a senior was the worst

How is the senior the toughest level? Elaborate please.

What you need is a manager level job with no direct reports. I’ve interviewed for two of these lately. They’ll prob pay you more than where you’re currently at. If your sick of clients why not just go industry? You’ll regret taking a demotion and pay cut real fast.

Not sure on the pay aspect, but CLA is not an up or out firm. Career path is truly self defined and can stop or change at any point between associate and principal. If you wanna be a life long preparer there is a good chance we’ve got a spot for you. I wouldn’t expect much, if anything, in terms of comp adjustments though.

I have two offers: 1. a strategy and ops role at a late stage startup, pre ipo (think databricks, Stripe) 2. a data science role at a bank. Comp is roughly the same at 270k TC. I’m much more interested in data science long term, but have FOMO about missing out on pre ipo shares. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
