Hey 🐠, I’m trying to understand if I need to be looking for lateral exit opportunities from a compensation perspective. I’m a Manager in the M&A IT practice, 12 YOE (7 in Tech and 5 in Consulting). I am happy with the work I do and the people I work with are tolerable. New base salary is $178K starting this month. Asking because I’ve heard that people should keep jumping from one company to another in Consulting to have a competitive comp. Basically guys, is my compensation competitive?

I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?
Hi 🐠: need some perspective. Currently approaching the end of my notice period at the current firm having accepted a role. However been getting much better opportunities to interview at other firms now. Have 2 months before I join the new firm. (1) What are the implications of interviewing after leaving the current firm from a referencing standpoint point? (2) Do I make it clear in the interviews that I’ve already resigned from the current firm? Thoughts welcome. TIA 🙏
My boyfriend of 7 years gave me an ultimatum — leave big law or we’re done…Sure there are better jobs but I don’t want to leave. I enjoy the money and things could be worse. Is this a sign that the future isn’t looking hot in my relationship ?
To be great at the ad game, you need to be a connoisseur of culture. The thing is, the people who've been in this industry the longest, have no idea what's going on because they've been busy as fuck.

I’m being contacted by recruiters for positions that I’m probably only half qualified. But pay is very good. Should I just see if I can ace the interview and get the offer or should I be honest upfront and tell them that I’m not 100% qualified ?

Hey team requesting help with evaluating exit ops: 1.) Corp Dev role (VP). 200 base, 22% bonus and some bps of fully diluted float. Comes out to ~100k annually at current valuation. Not sure I’m 100% sold on the company growth opportunity...sleepy company / industry 2.) manager level at MBB. Dream job of sorts. Something approximating 200 /20% bonus. Opens a lot of doors long term. In short, trading near term upside for prospect of something better. Thoughts?

This was posted somewhere else but seemed compelling enough to discuss…. The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of this belief is actually the whole point. (Cont.)

I'm a 'Consultant' who's worked as a Product Owner / Agile team lead throughout my career (3yrs) . This does involve client facing day to day activity . But I'm wondering where my career is going?
