As a high performing Tax Senior 2 in financial services, at what % pay raise would you consider switching to industry? I’m asking this cause I don’t even feel comfortable negotiating for this much salary (current + 15%) since there will be so much to learn at the new job. But maybe just impostor syndrome?


Since we got so much time on our hands lol I am a new analyst at the D wanting to figure out if MBA is the right next step to go to MBB post MBA. How would you guys recommend I start reaching out ? ..


Does it hurt your interview / career at Facebook, Snap, Twitter etc. if you don’t have an account personally? I’m interested in applying to these companies but am a very private person that prefers not to be on social media myself.


Anyone work for a company that went public? What was you’re experience like and how does it compare to B4 in terms of hours, learning, etc.? Did you feel like it opened up opportunities after the fact?


My glowing review, complete with the “It’s not a matter of ‘if’ you’ll make partner, but ‘when’” line, resulted in a $4,000 salary increase. For the third year in a row. I billed 200 more hours than last year and earned another certification. Now at $76k in a low to mid COL area. Top 25 firm. Is it time to jump ship?

I’m a manager making roughly $120K, but am interested in exploring different career paths. Most recently, Commercial Real Estate has struck me as an interest. I’m comfortable with the idea of taking a step back in my career (in terms of salary and role level) as long as it isn’t a hard reset (starting again from the very bottom). Any recommendations on how to pivot effectively without encountering severe financial setbacks?

Does anyone make employees submit their formal complaints via written/email? I’m tired of these “I want to complain and I want you do something, but don’t tell anyone” requests.


How long does it take to hear back after your final interview for an in house counsel role? I did the final round of interviews for a Bay Area company last Monday and still haven't heard anything. No rejection yet, but the longer I hear nothing, the more I worry they're not confident I'm the right fit.
