What comp can we expect to target after 2 YOE? I’m not miserable in consulting but don’t think I get paid enough. With my promotion in a month, I’ll be hitting 100k and I want to only leave if I can get 110k or more (going for strategy, PM, and a few startup roles). Is that realistic? whens the best time to leave for max comp in the long term?

Lateraled to a firm about 7 months ago and have been really unhappy. It’s not what I was told at all while interviewing, I’m getting administrative work as a mid-level, and it’s impossible to get a response from anyone at the firm whether work-related or office-related. I’m hesitant to lateral again given the threat of an upcoming recession. Any advice?

Baby furniture. What is everyone doing? FTM and trying to figure out if it’s worth investing in very expensive nursery furniture. We were looking at the Natart furniture collection and the Silva collections. These both come in at about $2000-$2400. The furniture is high quality and grows with the child. Alternatively I could go the lower end route at get everything for like $800. Is that wise? I hear horror stories about low quality and paint chipping from the baby teething on the crib.

I’m currently a solid agency gig that’s been going great and extending. They recently asked if I’d lower my rate. I already took a lower rate when I took the job. It’s a big network place. I feel like if they needed to cut freelance budgets they could just be like “we can only offer you X for the extension” and I could take it or leave it. But if they’re going to ask, I’m going to say no. Freelance is really picking up right now so I’m not afraid to walk away if I must. How would you react?
