It’s shocking to see with the amount of overtime we are forced to work we would make significantly more working at a gas station than a professional services firm. Although, I’m pretty sure if we attempted to work 75+ hours each week for two months that the gas station owners would probably think something was wrong with us.

There is a promise made for the future. And that future becomes reality for very few may be 1-2%. For others it’s a realization later they worked to make someone else rich. Welcome to the trenches. It’s a normal trend in most organizations.

“The market” is dictated by the 4 firms. They’ve had it at 57-60 for almost 7 years now. You can’t call something a “market” when they have full control over that wage. If it was indeed “market” wages should be shooting up this year with labor shortages and high demand, but even then, the raises in the past month were lame in all firms.

I wish EY coffee was a good a Buc-ee's Coffee and the bathrooms were as nice as Buc-ee's bathroom. Maybe my life's calling is a life in service to that wonderful beaver and I should be Regional Manager for them.

Looking for thoughts on if you would pursue an MBA given my age, YOE, current pay/track and post-MBA goals. 27M, 3 YOE all in consulting.

I don’t want to pivot into IB or PE, probably don’t want to work the hours required for MBB, but enjoy consulting and could see myself exiting to a tech company down the road.
