Congrats I left Accenture for Deloitte and got a $110k raise....I advise young consultants to jump ship as often as possible before making partner...that is the sure way to get consistent market value

likehelpfuluplifting

All nice and dandy but don’t forget that multiple jumps hurt your resume. Shows you don’t have longevity and will jump ship as soon as the next company throws some money at you. I’ve seen cases where partnership is denied for this very reason. Not saying you should never switch jobs, get paid what you’re worth but balance that with being reliable. The jumps mentioned above sound considerable, which makes sense, but do think long and hard about it before doing so.

Big congrats op. Smart move. Companies will pay as low as they can, and hopping for pay increases and fair market rate should absolutely be done! Don't let lifestyle creep getcha ;).

I got a 80k bump when I left Deloitte. "I'm very sorry, due to my developing skillset and market conditions, it's become necessary to move to a different company. I want you to know this resignation is in no way a statement about your culture or paycheck. If you wish for me, to speak on your behalf to potential employees and recommend you, please let them know my email."

Congrats!!! I was at KPMG 2 years ago making 74k, left for 110k, and just got bumped to 166k last week. Notoriously underpaid there, but the exit opps aren't bad!

With COVID-19, all MBAs will equal the same thing. I went to a full time MBA. One of the best experience of one’s life, but nowadays, nobody would care.

Not naming names since i haven't resigned yet (my start date is more than 2 weeks out). But a small startup ish company that does exactly what i do today on a smaller scale.

Thought experiment: Say you're exiting strategy consulting, looking at the typical opps and the crazy comp that comes with them. Then, all of a sudden, a corporate role comes up (strategy/finance/marketing etc.) in something you're 1000% passionate about. Slower sector, smaller company, lower prestige/trajectory, but you LOVE the product and industry (say a job at Specialized for a devout cyclist, or Activision Blizzard for the gamers). Would you go for it?
