Consulting Exit Opportunities

I’ve built a good rep at my current firm. I’ve been hating my recent projects and comp should be much higher than my current salary. Should I leave? Worried about restarting my reputation and network.

Look around. If higher comp is to be had you will find it. Decide if it’s worth jumping for when you see the offer.

Had an interview where they asked about salary. They asked what salary I was expecting and said that they pay 6 figure salary and I responded that I’d be happy with 6 figure salary. Would that mean they won’t offer me more than 100k?

The EY resource managers are incompetent! Their salary needs to be linked to practice utilization. They have no incentive to reduce the bench strength.
