What do you think is a reasonable % of revenue to ask for from a billable rate? I work part time (~5 hours / week) for a company where they bill $250 and hour for mine time. I’d assume my costs as an employee are minimal. What do you think would be an appropriate hourly rate?
Been getting approached by multiple recruiters for boutique consulting firms, and salary expectations never seem to align (mine are too high). I’m an experienced A in S& up for promotion fairly soon, which is why I benchmarked my salary expectation to SA level (140k base - even gave a slight discount there). More details: I’m happy where I am, with no great desire to move. Should I generally be setting lower expectations? What would your considerations be?
How many non-billable hours do you bill per year? Do they count towards your goal and bonus?
Survey: - Where do you work (industry or profession is fine if not company)? - How many hours per week do you work? - Annual salary?

Need help ladies :) I feel I am being paid very less as compared to my peers and other team members. I was the only one on the team from last 4-5 months and have handled everything by myself including coding to daily BAU tasks. How do I go about asking the leadership to increase my compensation? Also, my manager is very demanding and has suggested me not to talk to the CRO about my compensation. Don’t know what to do 😳

I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid.

The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar

I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!
