I just need to get this off my chest. I went from insurance defense to workers comp because I like that side of the v. and I thought it would lead to a decent pay raise. I wasn't making market value at ID firm and the firm had no more money to give (sometimes had to wait a week for paychecks to issue due to finance problems). After a year at this new firm, I definitely have my bearings of WC and ask for a raise during my review. That was denied and they had their feedback. After about 6 months..
Same responsibilities, higher expectations, and lower pay than my peer group but I’m told that I’m the future... Not sure how to approach ... should I raise with HR or my boss?
Am I the only one who has heard of PwC giving undergrads with a 10k higher base starting this year? Looking to see if I'm going to get a bigger raise this year 😄.

I am due for promotion next year from S. Con to Manager. I was assured that I would get it this yr but didn't happen and now the partner tells me that it's definitely going to happen next year. I have got an offer with 50% hike from a well to do start up but for the same profile. Should I make the move or should I wait another year? In a dilemma, kindly advice. I was also awarded the president award this time - but I guess that was more like a consolation for not getting the promotion.

Is it wrong to not want a promotion? Ive been told I’m on track for one soon but I still have sooo much to learn at this level and I don’t feel ready to move up.

Is it possible to raise a family if both parents are in Consulting? I feel our industry does not really support the idea of raising kids while working. This gets more difficult if both parents are in consulting (60+ hours per week, travel, constant pressure to move up, Sales targets, etc.) thoughts? Any good examples out there of working parents in Consulting?
Need Advice: My company recently announced that we are in the process of being acquired by a competitor and the deal should close in Q4 this year (this is a first for me.) The acquiring company only sells services and my current company sells both tech and services. I am on the tech sales team but I am concerned because we have 2x the number of employees. Any advice would be great (networking, begin job hunt, ask for raise/promotion, etc.)
Leaving for a new firm and the pay raise will mean that I’m above the contribution limits for both Traditional and Roth IRA’s. Where do I put my money now? (Already max 401(k)
