Consulting

Interviewing for a director level position in industry. It probably would come with a $60k pay increase - not the main factor for me. What do you look for when shifting to industry from consulting?

I'm also negotiating an offer. I had to get them to up PTO days and throw in free parking.

Stock options. They’ll shell out a lot more in stock just want to make sure the holding period isn’t long. Also stock options will be taxed as capital gains instead of income

What industry OP? Where’d you find the opportunity? How long have you been in consulting? I’m considering a switch too!

What Director level is offering >$250k base pay? Are you sure you’re not mixing up base and TC?

In tech, Director levels routinely get over $300k base. I think people all have a certain fixed mindset on what a title means. In some firms Director is very high level. In others it’s middle. This is middle-high. Not uncommon at all...actually surprised people have different experiences

Cyber: EY vs Accenture - which do you think will give me better exit ops when up for Manager (2-3yrs)? Accenture seems very ahead of the game when it comes to tech, but im also trying to get less hands-on implementation and more into strategy and selling, which seems like it might align more with EY. These are just gut feelings tho, would like input from people in the know.

How long would you wait for your husband if he is having performance issues and you both are still virgins. We both waited until marriage, it was all exciting. It's been two years and no progress. I feel like we are living like roommates. Things are okay otherwise, everything just feels meh. We tried going to counseling and did what they suggested, but nothing. He tried medication, etc and nothing. I tried everything on my end in the bedroom but nothing. I'm more sad than mad..
