Industry hands out amazing job titles while consulting has basic titles for different milestones. I feel like it's hurting us when we look for exit strategies.

Industry knows about titles....trust me, consulting titles don't hurt your exit ops - everyone in banking is a VP; so the "amazingness" of the title has been downgraded to the point of "everyone is a VP". Type of work you do, how you perform, and honestly your employer's brand have a much greater effect on your opportunities than your title.

Um, no. When you leave consulting you get an amazing title and pay based on consulting levels and pay which are typically higher than for non consultants. The only real caveat to this is that trying to get into a function that does not have many ex consultants can be difficult.

Employer's brand is really key.

I couldn't care less about titles, as long as the pay is good.

Amazing titles lose their value when they are just handed out. They become worthless. It's what you actually do that matters.

I got a 7% raise yesterday and 'potential for a bonus', but I'm disappointed. Our ACD and junior copywriter left a year ago. Despite hiring another CW six months ago, my responsibilities have almost doubled in the past year.

My boss said he fought for the 7% raise - they originally offered less. They haven't told me what bonus I qualify for, only that I 'qualify for one this year', and they haven't given me any criteria to meet.

I worked the past few years at an Independent fee based firm. I enjoyed my job, but was underpaid and not where I wanted to be geographically. I took a job at a private practice for a larger company. The pay is better & the hours are more reasonable, but my job duties are mundane and I feel no real impact/purpose with my position. I was told to view it like a “residency” program that would ultimately lead to an advisor role,I feel like it’s hindering my growth at this point it. Any advice?
