Mid size vs big 4 - which one to choose and why? Pay/work is same, no exit ops in either.

What group are you in that the exit ops in a midsize are the same as b4? Midsize you will likely work less, b4 you will work more but have the most cutting edge technology and be surrounded by some of the best and brightest. Obviously speaking in generalizations and will depend on your specific teams. I know people that average 45 hours/week in b4 and people that average 60 hours/week in midsize

Welp I’m nearing my first month into this AAE position, and now I’m realizing why I should’ve really seen being hired 30 min after the last interview as a huge 🚩🚩. I’m on 4 accounts and all of the previous AEs are transitioning off completely, essentially leaving me as the account lead. I do have two directors who share my accounts but they literally started a week after me, so I’ve really been getting crash courses and left to swim. Not totally a problem, but considering my title and salary…

Hi all, I am currently working at RB but I am interested in exiting to a tech strategy/product role after a few years. I was recently contacted by a recruiter at Publicis Sapient, and they do a lot of digital consulting. Which would position me better for FAANG in the future? RB but virtually no digital consulting, or a digital consulting house like Publicis Sapient? TIA

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.

When I moved in-house a year ago as a BigLaw mid-level, I took a 45% pay cut, far more than I was comfortable with (although I was fine with a 20-30% cut). I took the job because it was a great role and I was focused on making the jump in house and developing the skills I wanted, which required me moving away from my firm practice area. Now that my year-end review is coming up, how do I ask my company for a significant pay raise (not just a 2-5% inflation-matching raise)?
