Export any good decks you have (cleanse of client data, names, etc first)

Seriously don’t do that. No deck is worth it.

Seeing posts about transitioning from PA to Law a lot lately and i’m not gonna lie, I thought I wanted to be a lawyer as a kid but never pursued b/c of confidence issues (knew a few lawyers and where I was at in life at 17, I didn’t think there was a chance to become a lawyer). Now I am in Big 4 and still think about being a lawyer. So i’m now considering law school. I went to a really small undergrad, but graduated cum laude and took a few accounting courses at a big school (continued..)

Hello hello.

I am getting promoted soon. I work out of the NYC office of a top ten (non B4) firm. I would love some insight on what others in a similar situation were paid as a first year manager or expect to be paid.

I am currently sitting at 92.5k as a senior. Covid killed my most recent raise (for the whole firm). I am consistently getting high ratings.

Thanks in advance!

I think being in US dominated chats makes it difficult for us to gage consultant compensation outside of US.
