Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC. Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft
This might be a dumb question (and I’m fine if anyone thinks so) but should I withdraw all 401k and do a cash out mortgage refi to pay off almost all of my $200k federal student loan debt?
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
For those of you who had to deal with a salary decrease as a result of Covid, how quickly was it reinstated? Did it make you want to leave the firm? Are you concerned it will happen again with the uncertain economy?
Feel like there’s conflating between the optimism people feel about reopening and return to work. By going to restaurants and ballgames, I choose to accept the consequences for my own enjoyment. It’s not the same tradeoff asking me to collocate with team members or travel to the client site…
2018 i was laid off, took a salary and title cut, only got a 1% bonus from Accenture, final round and rejected by BCG, and today McKinsey Digital. Any words of hope? Thinking of leaving consulting.
What should be the salary range for an analytics professional with 6.5 years of experience?
Evaluating an offer from a series a startup - base is $160k and equity is about half of that or .15% of the company today. It’s a huge step down for me in total comp (~65k less than what I make today) but I think company has a good chance of success. How can I negotiate more equity?

So do we assume after today's comp call that an Associate/Senior in a struggling practice will get VC if barely hitting adjusted utilization goal?
PwC fish, how many years does it take the combination of the wealth builder and 401k match to effectively equal the 6% match that other firms offer comparatively right out of the gate?
I’ve been a Software Developer at FedEx for over 3 years, making 75k plus a small bonus of ~$6k. I’m fine with the lower salary because of the great work/life balance, but seeing how much others are making at similar companies makes me think I’m getting ripped off. I’d like to be making six figures, but am worried about work/life balance if I leave FedEx. Thoughts?
I am meeting my work people including client at a wine & dine festival this weekend, not sure what I should wear. Need help!!! We do plan to walk through lot of stalls, the event is spread out.
Has anyone received equity as contingency comp? I have a potential client with a founders dispute. He doesn’t have cash, and the other founder ripped him off and is now running the company. He wants to sue for equity and wants to pay me with whatever equity he wins. I’ve never done a deal like that. Is that even enforceable? CA law. The startup is actually quite promising.
Serious question: Why’d we have to migrate our network logins to FCB Health in addition to our emails? Couldn’t we have just started listing our emails as “@fcbhealth” but logging in as “@FCB”? Our old emails instantly forward to our current ones, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be the other way.
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
Just moved to a city I don't quite like for an industry job (I like the job a lot), my goal is to move back to my old city to get together with family and friends. I would like to stay in the current company for 6 months before requesting the transfer, should I secure an offer first just in case the transfer request did not go through? Or start interviewing after the denied request?

Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.

Investment return from Jan to June (1st half of 2020) was about 40%. However, if I didn’t actively trade, my return would have been 300% during this same period. Great lesson for myself! Share ur lessons learned during 1H 2020
