Seems really high for a non Big 4 partner. You had a great first year of growth, enjoy your accomplishments.

Agree, does seem high

High especially for a non big 4

Agree 100%

Yep, very high

What are your annual ledger growth goals? ($ or %)

This is the perfect kind of post for this bowl that allows us to speak freely. Sadly not enough responses

Are those expectations consistent across all partners or just select ones?

My revenue goal doubled year 1 to year 2. Now I’m just hoping that trend doesn’t continue for year 3...

Eventually need to get to $3.5 by end of year 5. Some offices want $4M plus, with minimum $500k annual wins, and transitioning clients to directors and newer partners if above that amount.

Non-B4, top 25 firm here. I would say our expectations are in that range depending on your comp growth expectations. The question is I guess, where does it level off. How much can you actually carry without jeopardizing quality. And what will the expectations be then.

I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?

Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?
