I am looking for moving forward in my career. My background is as follows: - bachelors in environmental health and safety engineering (EHS) - masters in safety sciences 6.5 years work experience - worked in distribution in EHS for a year - worked in EHS Consulting for 3 years - currently working in insurance consulting in risk management Want to get opinions on next move. Living in TX now. Insurance pays alright but my last raise was less than inflation rate and salary growth is low.
How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask. Just finished my first year, started at a very low salary (65k) for defense litigation associate and no raise yet. I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.
Negotiating a promotion and raise from Sr Manager to Assoc Director. How much should I ask for? Low 100s?
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
Consulting career is ruining my marriage and relationships with kids. I'm obsessed with promotion and don't feel close to my family anymore. I need help
Hope for promotion or get out? Basically I worked ~9 months on strategy/activation and then interviewed and got moved to analytics 2 months ago. I didn't get a chance to ask for increase compensation
So I’m 3 weeks into a new full time job. Been working like mad—late nights and all Memorial Day weekend. I’m the only senior writer on the team. How do I ask for a raise?
I went to my boss at work and said, "I need a raise. Three other companies are after me." He said, "Really? Which other companies are after you?" I said, "The electric, water and gas companies"
If your promotion leaves you undervalued and your boss says it's not a reflection of your skills and ability, it was a decision based on "pay band". How do you fight for the right title?
How many months after promotion to senior should you stay before exiting or transferring to another practice?
Probably within 1 year of manager promotion, is it short sighted to leave before the promo?
Everytime I ask my boss for a raise he tells me there is a freeze. How should I handle the situation?
1.5 years in T2 consulting and 6 mo from my first promotion. Got a pretty great offer at the industry and company I’d like to end up in down the road at analyst level. Worth waiting for promo?
Folks I never worked in India. I was thinking of moving back once Covid-19 is over. What are some of the challenges you faced back in India which made you move here? How is the work culture and growth opportunity compared to US? Do graduates from IIT/IIM get preference over Foreign Graduates (from a very reputed university - Top 20 in world) in promotion and growth? How expensive is India compared to US (in terms of salary to affordability ratio)?
If you get some development points and a partially at level in your third year, are you screwed for promotion?
One of the SMs is supporting my promotion case but they are lately trying to micromanage me and ask all nagging questions unnecessarily. Unsure how to handle this professionally.
Any Point B fish willing to talk about the company, it’s culture, and a Process Improvement role?
At PwC(S&) are evaluations (career roundtables) driven primarily by utilization? How much do reinvest and snapshots play?
How do you make snowboarding trips more affordable? First timer and can drive to mammoth/lake tahoe so that saves on airfare, but b/w just the 2.5hr lesson, gear rental, clothing rental, and 3 day lift tickets, that’s $1000 alone. I wanna do it before my body can’t handle an activity like that (I have patellar tendonitis, herniated disc) but man, this trip is costing more than half of what I predict one of our Euro trips next year will cost. No wonder I never went growing up 😔
The truth about how covid started
Moving to london soon - curious how much you spend on bills? Internet, water, gas & electricity, council tax, insurance?
Continued to be impressed by the Publicis response. We've had processes in place to support WFH for roughly a week. A process for bringing second screens home, support lines, team checks, etc. https://youtu.be/zz2IsWjT2HM

I interviewed for an internship at an agency I wasn’t super excited about, but wanted to get some interview practice in. When I met the ACD who interviewed me, we really hit it off and it made me (..)
If you're already making 6 figgies, is it worth pursuing an MBA for a bigger salary? At that point, an (top 20) MBA is about the network right?

I’m planning to buy the study materials for the SHRM-CP certificate through Amazon. What are the best ones to obtain?
Heads up for TSA precheck lady with a power trip in AA terminal in ORD. Made me check a bag that fit in the bin and that I flew with 130 times last year
I just moved to a foreign country and I am really in need of a job. I applied to a big 4 and spent weeks making it through interviews only to get turned down, because they wanted someone with big 4 experience. How can I get big 4 experience if a big 4 isn’t willing to hire me? I feel defeated.
I'm 25 and have found myself in a very unique position in my company. I haven't been here long but through hard work have had the opportunity to move up quickly and am now a Team Lead. A large group (basically anyone there longer than I) does not respect nor encourage my accomplishments but rather I feel their eyes are waiting on me to crash and burn. What are some ways you support yourself when you don't have the support of others?
