My partner, male, got a 10% raise.
Would appreciate some career advice. Currently a Manager in Corporate Strategy with a broad focus across multiple BU’s. Have a potential opportunity for a promotion to a Sr. Manager role (10-15% raise) focused on Healthcare strategy. Curious to hear opinions on 1) pros and cons of focusing on the healthcare space for a strategy career and 2) whether it makes sense to take the promotion even if not as interested in the industry for the sake of faster career progression/more $$.
For the purposes of pay bump, is it better to switch firms and remain a Manager for a few extra years? Or take the SM promotion? (Contd)

Fellow fishes, in case anyone of you is pursuing lateral entry opportunity with the MC-HIA team at PwC Acceleration Center, would advise you to consider again as the promotion opportunities are close to zero for lateral entries nowadays.
I am an entry level employee that was denied a raise in 1 of the last 3 years I was eligible due to being at the higher end of the pay scale for my position. I spoke to my manager recently regarding promotion and he is looking for me to make innovations for my group prior to promoting me. I have trained 2 other analysts the Sr analyst that was hired on. I am an Analyst and my predecessor was promoted to sr analyst after 2 years. Is it time to move on?
This watch is my favorite! It was a gift from my father-in-law when I proposed to my wife.
However, it's currently my only “luxury” watch. I would like to grow my watch collection starting at my budget which is around 1-2.5k I would love opinions/options as I'm still a novice in the watch world.
Preferably not a Rolex as I enjoy the diversity. Thanks in advance for any helpful insight :)

Concerned that announcing my pregnancy early might affect my raise? Getting promoted to manager this year and I’ll be due shortly after the promotion. Should I wait to announce my pregnancy until after the YE review process (after raise numbers are set)? My promotion will not be affected but I’m concerned about the raise % and bonus. Not that someone will blatantly say “let’s give her less since she’s pregnant” but they might use other excuses. Am I being irrational?
Considering making move from enabling/internal firm service areas back into client service. I'm worried about work life balance as i have extra demands from family for next few years.

Anyone make a similar move?

Question about negotiating when hired-- During negotiations would it be weird to ask for an annual review for promotion until I am promoted to senior producer? Usually people ask for vacation or salary but i'm more concerned about making a title jump and not sitting at the same position for three more years.
