Just wondering...were partners all top performers when they were at senior or manager level?🤔

Most likely not, they just lasted at the company the largest. Most top performers burn out and leave


This is exactly how it works.


Partners are people who were avg-above avg. Top talent leaves for money and bottom talent gets fired


C students hire B students who hire A students


Top sellers? Most definitely.

Top performers? It depends…


It’s about endurance friend


Never thought about it this way but a good point from lots of folks here


Lots were top.


And many top performers understand burnout and balance and find a way to make it work for them. Those that look for others to solve the problem usually don’t have the problem solved.



So says the SM1. Biased much? lol

The base is not changing much for me. I am Senior Managing Consultant at IBM.

Never saw IBM giving 10% bonus for last 10 years anyway. But heard Accenture gives 15K roughly to SM.

Tried to negotiate but Accenture is not willing to change base. They added 10K in RSU and Joining to make 40 each.

Mother in law constant interference has caused friction between me and my partner. She is over possessive about him to the extent how he should be fed , what he should be fed, what he should think and how he should perceive things, when he shd be happy and when he shd feel hurt everything is communicated to him in a subtle way. He gets influenced too.

She had come here for 6 months stay to help me post my delivery with our baby . But hardly she did. I don't know how to improve my partner

By chance anyone needs it this Sunday. Don’t punish yourself for the things done whilst drunk. Chemically you are not the same person, your whole brain is altered, who could expect for it to make the same decisions.
