Given all the recent buzz about expected large raises around the big 4, I’d like to level set on the average salary for a 4th/5th year female senior manager in federal tax ( credits & methods group) in the Midwest - Chicago/Minneapolis/Detroit market. Anyone willing to share a range if they work in a similar area of tax / similar level? I recognize all groups vary greatly in salary expectations, so looking for input specific to my area. Current expectations set at 140-160k. Reasonable?

I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.

Am I overreacting? My former boss texted me last night asking if I would be able to work on a landing page project over the night. For some context I left the company a month ago because I was severely underpaid and with no benefits. I’m 30 and I’ve been there for over 5 years paying for health insurance out of pocket and a 50k salary. I offered to help with a few side projects but now I feel like he’s leaning on me again and thinks because I’m so nice I’ll say yes and slave away for him anytime
Salary negotiation tips / tactics?
Just joined a Big 4 firm under the impression I would be doing XYZ work, but it turns out they misrepresented the position and the reality of the engagements available. I was straight up lied to (I did my due diligence as best I could). What should I do?

Which looks better: 1) tier 1 undergrad, mediocre work experience after college 2) average undergrad, equally mediocre work experience after college Would adcoms view (1) unfavorably since they could have landed a good role after college but didnt?

Has anyone made the switch from consultant to Project Manager in industry? How was the transition? Moving onto a 3rd round for a PM role, haven’t had formal PM training but they said the next interview will be PM specific questions. What’s the best way to prepare?
Are there any women in this group who are reduced time in a transactional practice at a big law firm? I’d love to hear if you’re glad you made the switch or not, what has worked, what hasn’t. I’m contemplating moving to 80% now, and maybe 60% after I come back from a mat leave for my 2nd kid next year. FWIW, my practice group leader seems very supportive of whatever I choose and I am not up for any promotions for the foreseeable future.
