In the 16 years since I was a summer clerk, profits per equity partner have more than doubled. The associate comp. scale has increased 20k in the same period. People wonder why associates are leaving for other jobs….
What’s a typical MBB exit for someone with 1.5 YOE at MBB? In terms of salary for strategy roles. I’m thinking ~130?
M3A - 2-rated, only $3k base increase and $12k bonus (last yr $12k base increase, $8k bonus). Told the next step to get a large base increase is promotion. Is this bullshit to keep me hanging on?

Does title in consulting matter when it comes to exiting to Industry? For example, a director level position requires 15 YOE, if a senior manager with 9 YOE applies, does he have a better advantage over a manager who has 25 YOE?
Has anyone regretted a move and title bump because they didn’t feel ready/weren’t ready? I have an offer from another Big4 for Senior Consultant but am getting nervous about the responsibility and current market. It’s hard to say no to with the title and significant salary bump. I’m on an easy project through the end of the year but have the offer now. Any advice or anyone face the same?

What kind of salary should I expect in London with 1.5-2 years experience? Planning a move and trying to figure out what to ask for/how to budget. Would really appreciate any insight.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I finally got the exit opportunity from my dream with a 50% increase in compensation thanks to this group for countless help and the ability to connect with so many people. Deloitte advisory is one of the most soul sucking jobs and it’s def nothing beyond staff augmentation. Why would anyone brag about working over the weekend? We’re not saving lives people!!! Glad to be out and hope the grass is greener on the other side.

When being considered for a project (long term), would you tell the engagement leader about your upcoming maternity leave? Has anyone here been rejected for a role after they communicated about parental leave? What is the right thing to do?
The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...
I have 2 years of experience in SAP HANA, SAP BUILD, Resource Management, Incident Management, Business Analysis, Failure Mode Analysis, Client Communication, Recruitment and Presentation skills.

Wanted to share a revelation with my fellow high-stress fishies. I used to take work so seriously that I’d toil late hours into the night and miss out on valuable time living life. I almost took medical leave my health was deteriorating from stress! Now that I have a spouse in medicine, I hear about his work with pediatric cancer patients every day and it REALLY puts things into perspective. Just a reminder to show up, do good, and don’t sweat the small stuff. We aren’t that important 😉
When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money
Im lucky enough to have the funds to pay for my MBA outright. Is there any reason I should say I’m going to try to get a loan on my app? Should I consider getting a loan? Does this affect my chances at a scholarship?

Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
Here's an antivaxxer story for you... My brother called my mom in a panic asking for a scan of photo of my dad's vaccine card - brother has the same name as my father. Apparently my brother is out with his bosses in NYC and they're all vaxxed and Mr. alt-right was going to be denied entry to a restaurant for an important business dinner. He got lucky but seriously, just get the vaccine already!!! (He's had COVID and recovered which is pushing him further info kuckoo antivaxxer territory 🙄) 🦠🦠
