Applied to Deloitte for a SC position & was told by HR that I was aiming too high so she had me interview for a Consultant position instead. Received an offer, she asked what salary I wanted & I said $100k based off the averages I saw online, she quickly agreed. Today was my first day & I saw that in the system they have me as a SC which has an average of $120k so now I’m not sure if there’s an error or if I got finessed out of $20k 😭 is it worth it to ask HR about/any tips on how to go about it

Switching consulting agencies atm. Currently I earn way below average at 42k€/p.a + car. Next week I am negotiating with another company wanting to employ me. I am actually bringing in a customer with a fixed 2 year project @ 1000€ all-in/day rate (5 billable days/week). What salary should I aim for - and what bonuses? I would love something around the market average of 65-75k is it realistic even though I am in my mid 20s?

The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...

Wondering how many investment hours other folks are putting in. I lateraled to my AM100 firm in June 2020 after starting my career at a small (12 attorney) shop, followed by a two year clerkship when I moved. My firm just instituted a new three tier system of compensation based on billables and I feel like I’m getting completely screwed because I had over 2400 hours, but a literal third of them are investment time. So I’m putting in tons of time, but will be in the lowest tier of compensation.

When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money

Keep hustlin’ y’all! It’s been 1 mo since I left consulting (exited to a high growth tech company, pre IPO) and I can honestly say every part of my professional life is better. Hours are reasonable, work is interesting, I can make plans for nights / weekends, and people are genuinely excited to work here. Plus TC is much better (200k —> 350k)! I interviewed a ton of places and turned down offers that weren’t right. I just wanted to post to say thanks, and if you’re still looking, don’t give up!

I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.
