So grateful for the generous salaries that the consulting world provides. What is one thing you’ve splurged on for your personal life? Mine is a Pottery Barn comforter! OBSESSED with how cozy it is and the perfect weight. Overpriced but a great investment! Looking forward to hearing others😊

Generous salaries really irked me. The salaries compared to the median American are great, but it’s all earned.


OP - Thank you for showing the full picture! Completely agree that it’s a matter of perspective. C1 - It’s a little bit abrasive that you feel like you need to “win” this argument, especially by only screenshotting the part of the definition in line with your views. We can both be right about this topic; OP and I have both acknowledged that there are multiple interpretations. Everything doesn’t always have to be a fight.
