Hi Tech Fishes - I'm a presales solutions architect trying to pivot to the partner business side of large cloud service providers.

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

I was let go during the pandemic and I 100% believe it was because I had kids and could not work around the clock. I’m enjoying freelance and was recently offered a full time remote position.

Would welcome any thoughts or kind words.

Hey ladies, I need your help. I’m on a project with a new manager and they don’t really know what to do. I’m an SC and the subject of the project is new to me but I’m still trying to get things done. After a few meetings this week I think the client and our firm leadership are frustrated and I can’t help but take it personally because I feel like I’m the most experienced person on the engagement and my manager doesn’t seem to do much during the day. What should I do?
