I’m a new CSM (9 months) and I work at a company that doesn’t invest much in its CSM team. I’ve been struggling because as time goes on I feel more and more like a token hire. We have no play book/structure, no CSM tool and I’m current organizing all 95 of my clients on spreadsheets while also handling presales trials with a salary under 50k.

Long story short: I’m searching for mentorship or to be pointed in the direction of a good course so I can help the clients I do have while I’m here

Hey Raijann- Ive been there Im so sorry. That is such a hard space to be in (hence me leaving my current job). Have you looked into using a project management tools like Asana or Click Up? I built my whole companies playbook on Click Up over the last year. There is no way we could have managed the day to day OPS without it.

As basic as it seems a simple excel spreadsheet. Start small then work your way through the biggest problems.

Left UK 5 years ago as Mgr because got fed up of low comp (and really, it’s the comp:houseprice ratio). Felt like unless you were in IB or Magic Circle law then getting on the property ladder was v difficult. But now wife wants to move back home - and trying to find the right moment when pay cut will be the smallest...

Hello Everyone!

The mods are thinking of starting a weekly series where we breakdown the compensation / salary of an in-house counsel offer. It will include variables like location, YOE, alma mater tier, company sector, and company size.

Would this be of interest to the community?


Hey, I have around 4.5 yoe, curr CTC 14.2 LPA fixed, I got an offer from Optum Labs @ Grade 27, What would be ideal salary for my exp level and grade*. Location : BLR

I have an experience of 8.3Yrs, current ctc 14lpa and i have an offer of 21.5lpa from tcs. My profile is python, django, docker and kubernetes. My technical rounds have been cleared in Capgemini. How much compensation should I ask for in my HR round?

Will I be getting the joining bonus with the first month salary or will I get that after 3 months ? Ps: I joined on 16th august and my first salary is due on 30th September.

Ok attempt 2 at demystifying partner comp:

This Q is going to spark some debate. Are the following ranges for average comp for partner with 2-3 YOE accurate? (Not meant to diminish any firms!)

Group 1 - MBB, Tier 2 - Kearney, LEK etc, “deep specialists” - ZS, OW etc: $750k - $1.5M
Group 2: B4, “broad specialists” - Navigant, W. Monroe etc: $400-600K
Group 3: Regional - North Highland, Point B etc: $250-400K


Found out I’m making $20k less than someone in same role (share similar experiences and both started over a year ago). Brought this up to my manager who encouraged me to talk to her manager (VP of department) if I felt comfortable. Scheduled a meeting with the VP, brought my facts, and politely asked if I could have a raise. She obliterated me. Said it was disrespectful to come to her and ask such a thing, unacceptable to be talking about salary with others, etc.


Recently laid off and interviewing for new roles at the senior brand strat/AD/director level.
