Putnam fish: I have 2 year 3 mon experience specific in life science consulting (wide project type experience), but offered a position as associate II. Is it expected? Surprised as I assumed it is logical to be assessed as senior associate. Thanks!

Is this MBB?

No, but the projects are 90% at least similar to Putnam’s work and I have also started taking project management / client facing role in my current job

To be completely honest I really find auditing to be boring and tedious. I really only learn how to audit better versus learning how a business really operates/ how to do the job of a controller or CFO. The only part of the job I really liked was talking things over with the client and with the WFH that’s at a stop. Will things get better for me as a senior or should I consider hoping out when things look better?

Came into consulting with the shark mentality and wanted to be an “over-achiever”. Now, I’m realizing that the juice just isn’t worth the squeeze (cringe). I just feel down considering my firm is not issuing any raises or bonuses to non promotion folks. Therefore, getting the same reward as the dude riding the bench with a <50% uti. The middle ground is the place to be quite honestly. Can anyone shed light on this pls?
