When companies match or beat outside offers to retain you, is it going to bite you down the road (ex: less raises, less% raise when you do get promoted, first one to be reviewed when cuts have to be made, etc)?

Absolutely, all of the above. That’s just a part of being at the top of a pay band though.

95% +Utilization, got a 4 of 5. (no raise, no bonus). I was benched last year due to awaiting my clearance (missed utilization) and got a 3 of 5 with a raise and bonus.

Just got an offer for manager from another firm and I know Accenture won’t give me the promotion until after the year-end reviews. How can I have the conversation to get a retention bonus now? I’ve already been signaled promotion is highly likely after reviews. Any tips on how to navigate? 15% raise.

Internally transferred into FDD as an audit senior 3. My coach and partner have indicated that I’m still eligible for promotion to manager based on years of experience. I’m trying to gauge the actual likelihood of this happening. Obviously firms bring in audit managers at the manager level with no FDD experience but would love to know if it’s possible/likely to be promoted to manager with less than a year of experience. I’d advise anyone in audit to transfer sooner rather than later!

INSEAD vs LBS: Targeting MBBs post MBA. Profile: Nationality - Indian, Current Location - London, Experience: ~6.5 years across Deloitte and EY. Currently on track for Manager promotion at Deloitte next year. My main concern is around sponsorship, are MBBs looking to hire non-Europeans esp. @INSEAD? People say it is a consulting school but majority of campus hires are EU / British citizens. Not sure if Brexit has changed something recently.
