Do you think most people would quote that money in the 1840’s value that you had to specifically say today’s dollars?

Unless you are already at your peak who knows what the dollar will look like after inflation (and don't speculate on that in your answer to this post) years from now which I'm guessing is what OP meant.

As much as humanly possible. My income goals have no cap.

About 500K. Assuming I get there in the next ten years, which might be reasonable based on my expected timing of getting to partner and giving it a couple extra years to stabilize after I make it, that would likely be between 610K and 740K at the time, depending on the actual average level of inflation between now and then. It could also be much more, or even much less, but if I could actually forecast that stuff, I sure as hell wouldn't be working in B4.

Just joined a startup after 4 YOE in consulting. My title is “Associate”, and the new hires that we are planning to add this summer (new grads) will also be coming in at the “Associate” title. As part of my responsibilities, I am expected to manage/lead a team of them. Can I formally request a title bump and additional compensation as such before then? This was just poor planning on the company’s end from a title standpoint.

Anyone else had to deal with construction next door? I get the daily jackhammers while trying to work from home and not using our backyard due to noise/dust. But every time they infringe on our property, the response is hostile. Broke our front fence from pulling on it, stand on our back fence until it shakes, and today dropped something on our roof. Each time they act offended when asked about it. 3x had drug addicts using on the site since it’s left unsecured, and they still won’t secure it.

Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.
