Bulge bracket bank can definitely offer more in cash. Their pocketbook is much deeper than big 4. But the hierarchy is less forgiving. You can skate by in B4 and make partner. You could also get filtered out of the bulge bracket at manager. There’s no guarantee you’ll make managing director just by subsisting / getting by like there is here in B4.

What’s the wlb? I made the switch from consulting to big bank. My pay isn’t as high as your offer, but 40-50 hours per week. I think it’s a solid offer, especially for project management.

Hi, I joined Deloitte USI on November 8. I believe that I will be eligible for hike for June 2022 (on pro-rated basis). Can you please suggest how to go about raising a snapshot? Is snapshot mandatory to be eligible for hike? I see that the final snapshot deadline is Dec 10, but my project is just getting started now. Not sure how can I take this up with my project manager, looks too early to ask for such things. Please suggest.

As companies scale, they lose identity. I think that is happening to Deloitte too. There is distribution in terms of capability and now the middle of distribution is way too big.
