What's better: senior product manager at Amazon, or Director at a large pharma company? Long term goals are fuzzy, but would like to stick in the health-tech space Comp is about the same
Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
My friend became a senior quant in a reputed hedge fund and confidentially mentioned to me that his bonus was >1M this year. Do hedge fund quants really make this much or is it based on individual?
Looking at Consulting roles at Avanade - Is associate the lowest level there? What is expected comp for NJ/NY area?
If you request a salary that’s too high does the hirer usually tell you it’s too high and offer you the salary they had in mind or just ghost you and move on to the next candidate?
I’m being promoted to Manager this November but recent got offer from a fintech. In money term the manager base pay is 5k greater than the new role but i’m negotiating to match the offer with my Manager salary. Should I wait until promoted or move asap? I dont want to continue working in external audit so trying to pivot to data analyst role/IA in the fintech before moving to full DA/DS position… but thinking the Manager promotion would help negotiate salary in the future.
Looking for input from indy/RIA, wirehouse, B/D, Bank, Insurance folks all in one spot. If you have $50M wrapped at 1% (let’s just assume for this purpose)... what does that equate to for total comp?

What is Senior Manager base salary at Deloitte?
My contract states if I pass the CPA in 18 months I get a $5k bonus. Do you think because of the pandemic there won't be a bonus once I am done ?
Anyone move from Deloitte to KPMG (or visa versa)? Any strong feelings on wether it was a good move or a bad move? I have an offer from KPMG for significantly more money (I’m pretty underpaid at D) but don’t hate the Deloitte culture or my job. Just won’t get anywhere near the comp KPMG offered to pay me. (I doubt they’ll even counter for the full amount if I tell them) Thanks for the input.

Should I be looking at Manager or Senior Manager level?
Firm is giving an extra bonus this year. After taxes theyll be just about the amount of interest on my law school loans (so much interest it’s disgusting). Do I immediately use all of it to pay off that interest, pay off one of the loans in full and put the rest toward interest, invest some, or other? I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!
Being offered 140k + 20% performance bonus for Tech Lead role in New York City with Capegemini. No signing bonus and relocation based on actual expenses How good/bad is this offer?
What’s the top non-obvious benefit of an MBA?
Quick scenario: If I have a consulting offer from a different Big 4 that has a start date post-10/15, so that in theory I would not have to submit a 2 weeks notice until post-10/1 (bonus payout date) but I sign the offer pre-9/30, am I obligated (looking for both legal & professional standpoint) to tell PwC because it is with a competitor? This is essentially the exact same group at the other big 4
HCL or Capgemini, where the chances of getting US onsite is more? I have H1-B, worked there for sometime and came back for personal reasons and would like to travel again if I get a chance.
My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
If you're laid off, do they ask you to resign? If so, can you refuse and ask them to fire you instead?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Can someone give me the high level summary on what a strategic partnerships role does please?
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general

What are realistic career paths for BDRs that do not want to be an account executive? I have been a BDR for 4 years now and looking to get out of sales but unsuccessful so far . I’ve interviewed for social media roles, BDR manager roles , always falling short on what they are looking for. Beginning to think I’ll just have to accept a career that I hate that brings me no passion and try for AE role. My ideal role would be in product marketing or social. Any advice?

ACN fishes. Salary check for Manager in S&C, London office? Got an offer for £79k base. Should I ask more? Feels like lowballed.
What is your hourly rate? Since, I’m 95% fee based. I don’t have an hourly rate for consultations or FP reviews. I was recently asked, what my hourly rate is for advising . Didn’t have an answer.
Do you stay at a good firm with a good reputation where you are siloed in a back office role with no growth or go to a lesser known firm with less track record and opportunity to learn and grow? I’m in an extremely operational role and want to leave but the benefits down the line could be grand. How do you evaluate a decision like this?
