Question-Should one look out for new (or moving on) opportunities in the first year of job? Yes/no? How early/delay shld one?

I’m in the first year of a new organization, been on individual contributing projects with leadership - and already feeling drained and not much inclusive to the practice or leadership. My concerns on comp and my level assessment (consultant despite 10yrs of exp in field) could be additional factors for my discomfort. Looking for advice from peers and community mentors.

I give it 6 months to figure out what the job actually is, 3 months to be the best I can be at it, and at least one performance cycle to project salary/benefits. If 9-12mo is a downward trend, it’s time to start looking. Don’t pull the trigger until you see no other way forward.

Well said! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Appreciate it.

Unfortunately, it’s tough to come into consulting at a level above the Consultant level. As a fellow experienced hire, I can definitely understand your frustration. You may be able to grab a promotion if you switch companies, but I would think you’d probably want to wait a year, if that’s your end game, just to pick up experience. I personally waited a year just so I made sure I kept my signing bonus, lol

Ahhhh, yea if your firm has SC’s, then you could’ve come in at that level. Haven’t heard of experienced hires without consulting coming in as Managers. But no worries, rant away!

Hello fishes,

I have received an offer letter from PWC AC Bangalore but they have only mentioned that I will be eligible for bonus time to time.
I don't see anything about variable pay and the joining bonus that was promised to me. Is it normal with PWC offer letter or I should ask HR to get everything updated in offer letter

I work as a clinical care manager (LCSW) with an insurance company. Wondering if there is a better way of finding out salary information for other companies out there that have similar positions?

I was told it’s because it’s based on cost of living where I am residing (not sure if that was legit or just an excuse).
