What do you do if your personal history is a Shipshewana and your company encourages personal sharing? My answer in the team happy hour for what my happiest childhood memory would be the day the cps took me and my brother to a fair to keep us busy while my mom was in court. Like, i dont want to make anyone uncomfortable and I appreciate the culture of sharing, but I know when my answers aren't work appropriate but I don't feel like lying. I work in a leadership position, too.

Shipshewana is an autocorrect and I love it, leaving it.

In that case I’d just say “when I got to go to the fair with my brother” and talk about the games and treats or whatever and just leave out the family detail while they still get the gist. Or just pick something else to share. Sometimes these questions don’t account for people who didn’t have an idyllic life, or people just don’t think that deeply about them. I don’t think most people expect you to share too deeply.

I am currently a PwC senior associate working in IFS (L&D) and am interviewing for a senior advisory learning services role at KPMG. If I were offered the job, I assume there would be a significant pay increase due to moving from an internal role to a client facing one. But what are the other pros/cons of jumping firms/moving from one LoS to another?

I have been in house for several years but am considering a counsel role in big law. Transactional practice, 1750 hrs expectation. 25% pay increase. One of the reasons I’m considering a switch is that I’m already working long hours including some nights/wkds and want to make more money. Moms in roles with similar billing requirements - does this feel pretty doable with kids’ schedules/activities? Are you able to enjoy downtime with the kids without constantly feeling guilty about hours?

Curious to get an idea of where my company compares regarding compensation. I am one of a team of 5 advisors dedicated to about 6500 individual clients and $2.97Billion in client assets. Each one of us is fully licensed (7,66 and insurance), and I hold my 24. My base is $80k with a VC target of 40% of base salary. Goals are mostly made up of client satisfaction surveys, asset additions, and retention. I feel that we are grossly underpaid for the role, but not sure exactly how that compares.
