Industry is not that different but you have to live with your ideas, execute your plans, manage up and down the chain, respect the culture and recognize the hours aren’t shorter, just different. Spent 10 years in industry. Last rec is get equity, that’s how you build wealth faster in industry.

I’m a Director at an industrials company. Total comp is about $70k more than I made as a M at D. I, and almost all Ds and VPs, work pretty close to 8-5 most weeks. SBU presidents and c-suite of course work more but they also make more than partners at consulting firms.

Well, either your new gig sees your potential which made them comfortable in making that offer or they are too dim to see through the consulting veneer. In either case you should be fine :)

Not really sure what board is proper for this. But has anyone had an experience where your boss required paperwork for a raise? I started my job as an account manager at a less than reasonable salary, but I was under the impression that I would be able to grow and would have help. A lot of work is dumped on me at one time and all the responsibility falls to me, it's often way to much work for one person. I tried to negotiate a raise with my boss and lead with the fact that I was moving to the area and the salary was not conducive to rent here. He cut me off after my first point and said he'd figure it out. I never got to tell him about my workload. Long story short he required a lease agreement for me to get this raise. It took quite a while to get one... had a few places fall through. My landlord is in the middle of moving so was only able to forward me a PDF of the document that was unsigned, until she has time to meet. Now my boss wants a signed lease with all my roommates signatures too. This is not part of the contract I signed that simply says "provide a lease agreement"... tips?
