Anybody with 3 YOE+ switch from Core tax to their international group? How was the transition? Did you have to step down a level if you were a recent senior/manager? Did you have to switch firms? Reason I ask is that I wouldn't mind delaying my promotion to manager to get international experience. Want to experience international before jumping from PA.
Considering exiting my first consulting team for a lateral into a smaller firm/practice (boutique to boutique): same work, same city, +20% raise. What were some of the questions that helped get others off the fence when considering making the first jump? Love both teams, long-term trajectory is very similar - but, it seems like I simply have to jump to get an add-on raise. Appreciate any insight folks have.
Ever get annoyed at how happy the partners/MDs are at work everyday knowing it’s probably because they’re making $Mlns from the project? If I see one more “Happy Monday so blessed to be at this client” I’m asking for a raise

Currently at EY senior 3 up for promotion to manager just interviewed with Deloitte and people seem great! Salary increase is amazing… is this a good decision hmm… you guys tell me. I have no issues with EY but my salary is not what I would like it to be and when I promote I don’t think they will come close to offer from Deloitte.
If my milestone year is in 2023, can anyone tell me if that can ever come down to 2022. Also 2023 is a year, which quarter do they actually give the promotion.

Can I trade my upvotes for a higher raise?
Both the agency owner and the senior director I report to introduced me to new clients last week as a director even though my job title is manager. Should I ask to (or just start) use director as my job title since clearly they want clients to think I am? We all just took salary cuts due to COVID so it’d be a promotion in title only for work that I’ve already been doing.
What r the chances of a person who’s only had in-house experience for 7-8 yrs to lateral into Biglaw? I have had pretty rich experience for in-house (leading internal investigations, directly reporting to management on risks/legal issues, etc.). I recently moved to NYC (my company’s headquarters) but would love to go into Biglaw. Promotion seems to be an uphill battle at my company unless u r from Biglaw. How to start networking and get my foot in the Biglaw door?
Expecting a CMAAS experienced associate offer from Pwc transferring from audit. When can i expect a senior promotion and what is the salary i can expect? Is it negotiable?
I work at an association where they have to report the top 10 highly paid employees. Saw that my peer w/ same years of experience is making $70k more than me. I wish I had never seen this information-it has put a horrible twist in my gut and a lot of resentment. Before seeing this info, I had asked my boss for a raise based on the success I've had over the past 8 years but have only gotten 4% bump per year. What can I reasonably ask/expect ? 20%? Do I mention the disparity if boss lowballs?

Started a new job. Today. In the midst of the coronavirus. Was working at a startup with no sizable income and is on halt now. I feel extremely lucky. Good luck to all, not all hope is lost!
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
Good neighborhood/Hilton properties to stay in Cleveland. Also, preferably nearby Marriott would be great as the PM does only the latter! Must visit bars/restaurants (veggie) in CLE?
Two parter, maybe three. First year partner looking to move out of Illinois. 1. What to partners typically spend on their house (wife doesn't work)?

My company was acquired by a larger company. They offered me a more senior position outside of EA space, in an area that i know very little about, but no additional pay compensation. I also do not get equity, like at my last company. They’ll offer me a retention bonus after 1 year equal to the amount of severance they would have given if I do not take the job. Would you take the new job or take the severance and find something more in line with what I’m doing now?
Just out of curiosity - what sort of events/mishaps, with airlines or hotels, actually trigger you to ask for points as compensation?
Aight holiday gifts/tips for staff (mainly my PA) - I had heard as junior that it’s $100 per class year, so for example if ur a 3rd year it’s $300 to your PA. Is that the norm for your firm too, and same rule all the way up to senior year (so 6th year is $600…?) I love my PA but this year with WFH I really did not give her any work, but also we all get paid more what with covid bonuses so it seems extra grinch to not pay out. What’s your plan?
