Statistically speaking they may be correct, but its a nonsensical comparison because of the difference in the size of the talent pools and the acceptance criteria

Hey geniuses, financial modelling question: how do you account for the risk of fines in an excel business case model? For example if your project would eliminate a 10% risk each year of being fined $1m. Do I model it as a $1m P&L benefit a year? $100k? Something else? Thanks!

Been getting approached by multiple recruiters for boutique consulting firms, and salary expectations never seem to align (mine are too high). Im an experienced A in S& up for promotion fairly soon, which is why I benchmarked my salary expectation to SA level (140k base - even gave a slight discount there). More details: Im happy where I am, with no great desire to move. Should I generally be setting lower expectations? What would your considerations be?
