WHERE IS MY RAISE
Current role: Entry level cyber consultant, ~1 YOE post grad, 75k, leadership has floated the idea of early promotion to senior in May (for whatever that is worth) Opportunity: boutique CRM firm at a senior consultant level, 100k What’re the bowl’s thoughts? Better to stay at a larger firm with more potential long term growth, or switch now for the immediate pay bump and more start up vibes meaning potential rapid leadership position?
Hi Accenture 🐠, I recently moved to a different state and bought a 🏡 here. Can I still keep my affiliation with my precious office (SF)? Or do I need to switch? What is the policy? Also, I am up for a promotion. Will the change of office impact my promotion? Thanks.

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?

I am H1B and I’ve started my GC process. my husband is also on H1B but won’t get his GC sponsored until his next job. What happens if he has started the GC process but by then his H1B had run out?

5 weeks ago I told my boss we need to start working on a “we’re open again” spot. She basically called me blind for not seeing that the Covid crisis was nowhere near finished and then accused me of not having enough work to do. This morning at 6 am she texted me - “Need you to kick off a ‘we’re open again’ spot with the agency. Tell them they have 1.5 weeks to stand it up.”
Why is there an overlap / inverse correlation between salary and designation? For example there are senior consultants making a lot more than managers, and managers making a lot more than SM.

Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
