Feel like I should throw in that my SO (currently up for promo at ACN and got an internal people role at M) has been consulting for 5 years and is pretty exhausted, approaching burnout. Just for context!

Yeah afaik they get bonuses upto 5% while client facing roles are in the 15-30% range But internal roles also get smaller annual base bumps, generally in the 2-3% range

I'll be the client. 😎

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)

I feel like I’m hitting a glass ceiling of sorts when it comes to representing clients at important events (ie, mediation, hearing, etc.). I’ll handle everything up until that point, but then I get the sense that the client wants the partner to step in and handle the big event. These same partners have told me they think I can handle it and would like for me to, but we ultimately have to meet the client’s expectations.

We all weigh exit opps from a comp perspective here and not career growth / trajectory as much. I’m rejecting an offer for 210K TC (110K current TC) because it doesn’t have the growth / trajectory I want from my next role. Tell me I’m not being dumb lol
