If you're billing the same rate, you should get the same salary bands regardless of geography.

No. Cost of labour varies by geography.

SM1 - Ok. Let’s all agree we will take more or less comp based on a percent of what we bill the client and we pay for non-billable travel out of our own pockets. And we only get paid for billable hours, no billing bench time or other non-charge time. Is that your proposal at equity?

Agreed

Why? Wages are bound by labor market forces, not bill rates. Bill rates are related to a theoretical ceiling on rates. All of our firms pay wages far below those ceilings though. My client will pay $X and does not care if we fly consultants in from Oklahoma or NYC. Some poor soul in OKC is willing to accept $Y for the WLB trade offs of consulting because they can live like a queen. Another pour soul in NYC requires $Z (much more than $Y) to work here because that’s what they need to avoid living like a pauper. So they get different wages. By the way, there aren’t enough pour souls in OKC to do this job or the firm would only recruit there. It needs to recruit in NYC to find sufficient quantity of pour souls to staff projects.

Don't think I didn't notice you going back to edit your post when I was able to effectively rebut you

I got laid off during the beginning of the pandemic. Since then I’ve been struggling with drug use and finances. Deloitte hired me out grad school. I’ve been unable to find a job in IT Controls. Any help? I did IT Controls Audit Readiness for a couple years. The market is so niche and being black makes it twice as hard to find work. I really need some help landing a new role folks. I’m 22 days clean!

Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
