Started at PwC in fall of 2016, moved to D for a raise (80->125) Watching my PwC classmates who are all Sr Associates, some on cusp of Manager. Can’t help but feel left behind as a C at Deloitte. I know I’m doing fine but man still feels like maybe I was too hasty to jump 😪

Er...title is probably the last thing you should worry about in life (especially now in Pandemic, and you’re so early in your career...). I finished college in Fall 2012 and started working in Spring 2014, and I’m still a consultant 🙄 (actually this is quite common) vs some of my classmates having senior manager /director titles (though in other industries) - but I’m not going to feel sad for this

Comparison is the thief of joy. Let’s look at my progression, I took the long way to consulting and at 10 years out of school, am only a Senior Consultant. Not to mention, I make less money than you do, $115 base comp, my level doesn’t qualify for any bonus, and I only get 12 days of PTO.....when you compare against me, you’re doing well. What I am saying is that you are 4 years into your career with likely 35-40 more to go. It will happen, but stop comparing and just focus on improving you.

This is the real question. You should be at SC on the cusp of M (1-2 yrs C, 2 years SC for experienced hire at Deloitte). What happened?

I’m also a year behind my colleagues I started with at KPMG, moved country and to Deloitte. Everyone in my KPMG cohort made Manager last year I’m only getting SC this year (equivalent to KPMG manager) but the pay rise and country change is worth being one year behind now.

I'm so fed up with the casual sexism of my mom.

When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)

Before seeing this info, I had asked my boss for a raise based on the success I've had over the past 8 years but have only gotten 4% bump per year. What can I reasonably ask/expect ? 20%? Do I mention the disparity if boss lowballs?

Have a great opp with a new company for a leadership role and to make a run at partner. BUT there are partners that I had a huge negative interaction early in my career (my first consulting company, we’ve all subsequently moved around). At the time I was young and in the wrong and one of the partners tried (unsuccessfully) to sack me. Should I reconsider the move? Would they block my bid for partner based on bad blood from 10 years ago?
