They cut our raises and told us to be grateful for our jobs. Can confirm, definitely did not work. I have not found a single analyst or consultant that wants to stay.

Having the same issue in our boutique firm. No bonuses, frozen promotions, no expense account

They’ve give us more work with fewer workers so that’s motivated me to want to die

Oh, and no raises, bonuses or encores(“attaboys” redeemable for $). Though I do feel fortunate that I can complain about those things vs the folks who are out of work and struggling.

Looking for advice! Engineer with 7 years of experience + MBA looking to switch to consulting. I have two offers from Big 4 firms: one as a manager and the other is as a senior consultant. Obviously manager level pays more but I am not sure if the transition from the industry to consulting manager level without the senior experience would set me up for success in the long term. Thanks in advance.
