Just had a look at some start-ups that are hiring and a lot of them offer unlimited vacation days... think this is a good practice?
Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
Am I underpaid? Analytics Sr. Consultant (semi-technical role) w/ 8 YOE, age 31 - Austin, Tx. With Finance BA and Econ MA from mediocre University. Salary-$90k, no bonus/stock/etc.
Interviewing for a role at BP, what are they like as a firm to work at? It’d be the commercial/strategy side of the business rather than production. I understand they went thru a major re-org to be relevant for the future energy industry. How’s that going?
What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance? I’ve heard positive things about Google and Amazon/AWS and about some of the big defense firms (Lockheed). Is it actually possible to boost comp by 50% or so on exit from big 4 in this space?
Is there a difference between a normal tax professional vs a tax consultant that works for the big 4? Are they essentially the same position and get paid the same as well?
Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
I have only had male mentors and I really wish I had a female role model to look up to in this field. Any advice for how to network and find a good female mentor? Im up for promotion to manager this year and I want to leave the firm after. I don’t know where to start and I lack the confidence and network needed to change careers. Any useful advice? Thank you!!
Can any Adobe 🐟 help me out with comp for a Sr. Solutions Architect? Am I correct that a a Solutions Architect is L5 and Sr. Solutions Architect is L6? Glassdoor is showing the following averages: Base: $162k RSU: $34k/yr Bonus: $10k Is this in the ballpark? Role is remote in a LCOL southern state. Thank you in advance!
I’m documenting updates my manager provides every week in my PIP document and at the end of the month he says his feedback isn’t captured accurately. What’s the best way to deal with this? Don’t want to get fired and think I’m doing much better than other people in my role

I’m burnt out on taxes; I wanted to do 10 returns a year, if that. Looking at an accounting manager position with KPMG, from the job description, looks like just accounting and financial reporting. Does anyone know if that is true. Also, how’s the culture at KPMG? Looking in the STL area.
Hey all! I was told I might get help here! I got an offer at a mid pharma for a strategy role that I’m intending to take. Partner is threatening to sue because the job offer is from a direct client that I work with. I’ve received legal counsel and have no apparent liabilities in any of my or my clients contracts (non-compete, non-solicitation, etc.). Unfortunately, that doesn’t prevent me from getting sued because I still have to defend it. Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation?
Any gov consulting firms actively hiring in dc? I have a buddy who just graduated with his MBA but didn't go through consulting recruitment. Veteran + worked on the hill. Fishbowlburnerdallas@gmail.com
Help! I may have screwed myself over. I got an offer for $80,000 from a company for a role that was very hard/impossible to find salary data for online (I currently make $78,000) and I negotiated and asked for $94,000 (knowing that was a little high and I wouldn’t get that). The recruiter came back to me and asked if I could provide her data to support this ask. It’s literally based on my current salary and expected promotion/bonus (I know neither of those are certain). I just don’t know how to

I have an offer for a senior associate role at a $1B private equity. Currently a manager though, so a downgrade. Getting pay rise. Pros and cons of losing title?
Made M recently. Total 10 YOE industry (7) and consulting (3) combined. Based out of MCOL city. Found a Directory level exit opportunity that pays 200k base (20% increase over current) but requires me to relocate to a HCOL city. I'm not sure whether to bite. Company isn't all that sexy and I like where I live but the JD looks like it was written for me. If it was a job that I wouldn't need to relocate for, I might just take it. Does it make good career sense to take it? Got a family too.
Heartwarming diversity on display at the DNC! From Republicans to Democrats, representation from all races - even Northern Marinara Islands got a shout out. Go Joe & Kamala!
How do you all handle stress at work? I’m on a though project and feeling sort of hung out to figure it all myself. My stomach is in knots and I’m waking up in the middle of the night thinking about the case.
I have an interview with Deloitte Strategy & Analytics for a Senior Consultant role. What can I expect in the case? Is it a regular case? Or something new? The email I got is throwing me off. Help, thanks :)
Drinking seems to be built into big law atmosphere/ central to networking. Any tips or lessons learned?
Wild that conservatives think they're on the right side of history after supporting officials who let tens of thousands die needlessly and will now try to take away people's healthcare.

Are there any married couples working at two different big 4 firms? How did you make sure your finances were compliant with both?
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Potentially have an offer from a local tech startup. I’m 24, currently make ~$95K base and ~$50K, with an additional ~$20K in profit sharing (so total comp around $160-170K). Offer would likely (cont)
Had a final round interview with B4 consulting on Monday and spoke with a partner for 10 min. When is it okay to follow up with them about a final decision? Currently staffed and they wanted me to start in March. So wanted to give my team maximum time to backfill my position.
I made limited EQ partner in 2019 . This week I was told I’m getting moved to counsel effective Jan 1. My hours were negatively impacted in 2019 by an ill parent (only child) and in 2020 multiple clients said pencils down for half the year (& additional family illness & a death), + kids. I know nothing about the counsel role. What terms/arrangements have people negotiated? I don’t know what negotiation ability I’ll have, but wanted to be better informed.
