Seems obvious to me yet i still must ask to hear out the trade offs…. Non equity tech MD at a specialty business unit at MBB, or MD at a leading system integrator with public equity and significant total compensation increase? Feels like being a true MD and no second rate citizen status supersedes the MBB brand name if you’re not partner track.

Non equity at MBB is the worst. I speak from experience. Take the equity role if you can.

Incoming unqualified opinions from 23-year old BAs at Deloitte in 3, 2, 1… If you want my unqualified opinion though, I took a pay cut going from a well-known EB IB to VC. Love what I do, and don’t give a damn about the firm name. If you have dependents, your consideration may change, but the feeling I get is that every year the names of previously amazing brands continue to get diluted the more they grow.

I could’ve probably made 300-400k upon the Associate promotion. Depending on how my carry plays out here, I might not lose money, but I’m losing about 30-50% in guaranteed comp.

So I received an offer that is +45k putting my total salary at 170 as a senior and I tried counter offering but my partner said to me that money will always be there but that I can’t buy connections and growth. I don’t understand the mindset behind this? Isn’t more money today worth more than more money tomorrow?

So I got divorced earlier this year. I left my husband because he was abusive and I don't hate him anymore or feel anger towards him, which has been a big accomplishment for me.

I'm so angry with them and don't want them to be happy but those feelings are preventing me from moving on. Advice on how to move on pls?
