You brought that client/business in- ask for the billing credit. If they say no, then ask to split it with the partner. Make sure it’s documented in an email so you can refer to it later during your evals/compensation discussions. You earned that credit and don’t settle for less.

Of course! I’ve seen way too many friends and colleagues have business taken from them because it was never explained to them or they didn’t know/learn until after the fact. Stand your ground and let them know that, while you’re a team player, you also know your worth and know when/how to advocate for yourself when and where credit is due. I was so scared and nervous the first time I did this but I’ve come to find that the right people will respect you more for it. Keep us posted and you got this!

I am planning to join TCS from Infosys. My YOE- 8, Role- Assistant Consultant. Here I am seeing TCS employee's are very unhappy. Is this only because of low salary? If you ask me, I am leaving infosys just because of the salary. Rest all are good in Infosys. How is TCS if I keep money factor aside? How is the re-skilling opportunies, onsite opportunies, recognitions, rewards?

How much emphasis does your firm put on your personal dollars sold in determining your comp/success and how does it incentivize collaboration? At BCG (1) evaluation is pretty heavily focused on dollars sold (have heard that McKinsey is more focused on 'impact' and 'relationships', even if these are sometimes thinly veiled proxies for revenue) and (2) we are structurally incentivized to involve exactly two other partners in any given project (have heard McKinsey is "the more the merrier").

Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?
