Consulting

Is the Career Outlook discussion the appropriate time to ask your RP to up your compensation or you are out (assuming you have a higher offer in hand)?

It's always the right time. However, you are looked at as a savage if you get the raise and stay.

I agree with EY1. Once is fine with a given RP, but make sure this is worth it. Also, if you're gonna pull that card, be prepared to leave if they don't match it, or risk looking like an idiot

SA1, how could you pull this off "always?" The firm only adjusts compensation once per year.

OP, try to do it before if you can. The ink is pretty dry by Career Outlook in June. Your team is finalizing numbers now. Also, there's not much, if anything, they can do if you are within a cohort.

Don't do it every year was the message. But, hey , it's your career. Go for it and good luck.

With the new Cohorts model there will be less flexibility (to none) for base but they may be able to influence bonus

I have five years big 4. Always did well bonus and promotion wise. In between I left for IT sales to make more money but being in Boston I would of had to move for better opportunities. Now I’m back in consulting and miss the freedom of sales. Anyone in my position? I felt this way before quarantine too. The SM on my project almost got divorced so she worked so much, then she said I realized it just my life. It’s just too unhealthy. Thoughts bowlers?
