Hi All, I was offered a role with Aecoms San Francisco office working with an energy client for a midlevel associate environmental planner. I wanted to gauge what is a general salary that ones been offered on this team. I felt lowballed at $79k/annual, initially offered 74k. This is given that I had 1.5 years in land use planning and a recent masters graduate in urban planning.
Serious question: For context, I work for a tech startup in the San Francisco Bay Area making $170K/year as a Sr. Technical Recruiter. Do I have golden handcuffs as an individual contributor or can I make this elsewhere and/or more? Also, can I continuing making this much or more solely as an IC or is management inevitable at this point?
I’ve done media management on 3 unscripted shows now, the last was a 3 year contract on a talk show. An earlier one I was embedded city subjects at sea for 4 months. I was a gaffer and key grip for a decade before that with occasional Cam Op gigs and did a bunch of one person crew unscripted content for clients along the way too. Often I end up doing the labor of 4 or 5 people while having 3 or more managers that just send emails. Any tips for protecting myself from this happening again?
Over extended myself. Debating on waiting a bit more for VTSAX to come back where I’ll be breaking even and taking my cash back out and averaging back in. Got in at $83 for 16.5k and feel like I missed the boat (time in market vs. timing lol). Put an additional 1k (DCA) in at $71 split 50/50 between brokerage and Roth IRA. Want to get at least my initial 10k out of brokerage. OR I could continue to average in but instead at my floor. So if we are above $83 I will put in HYS. Thoughts?

Slalom Consulting or UBS Group Internal Consulting? I received offers from both and need to make a decision soon. Slalom pays MUCH better, but UBS is a bigger name and will probably look better on MBA applications in the future? Also, for a fresh college grad entering the consulting world, is it better to take an in-house consultant or external consultant role as a first job? Please help a confused college senior out. Thanks!!!

Thoughts on a PT MBA (Kellogg, HAAS, Booth) vs. T14 full time MBA. I am a consultant in S& that makes over $200k+ a year right now and will make $300+ in 2 years or so (will be SM by then). If I left PwC for a full time MBA, I feel like I am setting myself back (e.g., full time MBA, maybe switch to MBB associate, etc. - which is an upgrade on prestige and a downgrade on comp.) Primary reason for the MBA is to get into a CXO role of a PE backed company someday.

I was a partner in a very small firm that broke up when a partner died. Became a solo and love the autonomy. But it can be lonely and I miss the camaraderie and support in a small office. I am a later in life lawyer so, because of my age, I do not want to start out all over in a firm. So, I have been thinking about retiring. But 2 firms have approached me about joining their firm as “of counsel”. I am interested but not really sure what that means. Any guidance before I talk to the firms?

Anyone of you that “dumb” / “goofy” one in your friend group? Like you aren’t actually dumb, but your friends already start laughing because they expect you to say something funny or dumb.
