A1-A2 tax, 6% raise and 3% VC. Thoughts?
EY 🐠 at what level are seniors eligible for promotion taking in to account that they are capable and ready, is it at the beginning of senior 3 or end of year 3?
Been a mobile dev for two years at my current company, and for the last 6 months been working alone (used to have a second developer). I asked manager for a raise and he said ‘it looks bad to ask’ is this a normal response? He said you should let management come to you with an offer and not the other way around.
There’s an experienced manager (I am a SA up for promotion) on my file, but she is very hands off. So I go to the partner directly for some issues. The partner pulled the manager aside and mentione
Finished paying off my student loans!! Its like I got an 18% raise. Its a shame Im not exactly sure what to do with this extra money. I dont want to fall into the trap of earn more=spend more. Max 401K? house?
When will American stop the “limited time”in-flight credit card promotion......it make me irrationally angry and I find it rude to disrupt passengers with this ad. Am I crazy?
Ladies - going to negotiate a payrise next week. Received an unsatisfactory (<$2k) bump with promotion. Getting offers $60k above current pay from industry. Am nervous... Any tips / anecdotes? TIA 🙏
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?
I just got promoted to manager but I still want to leave my firm. Should I put this on my resume and apply in a few months? The reason I want to leave is because I want to be at a firm that’s a bit more team projects rather than more single jobs. I wonder how this would be received after I just got a promotion
Any tips on asking for a promotion?

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
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
I need advice on a late in life career pivot. I am spoiled - well-paid, but will never receive a raise above 1% or a decent bonus (I've hit the ceiling). My new boss is horrible, and 1/2 of the team left in the first year of her tenure. Staying is my last resort. My limitations: I need a high-level legal job (Assistant GC) in the LA area. I specialize in intellectual property law and global procurement. Do I hire someone to help with the search? The job boards have limited opportunties for me.
Is it better to exit consulting as a manager or after promotion to SM? MD chances are slim so I don’t know how long I should stay
AA ✈️💺 Benchmarking: I’m often curious as to the spend for folks above / below on the upgrade list. Perhaps others are also curious, too? Would AA folks post: Home airport / EQD / EQM / EQS?
I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.
Ladies, have any of you made the jump from big 4 manager to mid-tier firm and not regret it? I feel like my optuons in industry in my city are not ideal and wouldn't offer the same flexibility as PA. At the same time, the culture in my office has become too toxic and don't feel like my contributions matter at all. Also, not to mention the lack of business case.

If [said company] asks to put you "on hold" for the month of December...but you found a better offer, do you: -have to follow through with said gig -communicate this with them if they haven't followed up yet (but added you to new slack channels) (asking because I no longer wish to work with them) Thanks for the advice.
