Anyone have success stories or tips for pulling themselves out of a loss of confidence / work rut? I’ve been stuck in a role for 2 years that I hated for the majority (stayed due to large signing bonus terms). As I’m starting to shop for new roles I feel like my confidence in my abilities has taken a serious hit. Any advice?
Would differentiators determine promotion or bonus only? In other words, if at least half of my snapshots are partially next level/next level but no differentiators, would I get promoted to senior?
Hello Folks, Need your suggestions . I have two offers in Hand. EY GDS and IBM . Both are offering same fixed salary. YOE: 7, Skill : SAP Functional.
Which one should I join ?
What’s an average, reasonable salary for an IT marketing manager in the DC metro area? It’s a large private company that’s only been growing exponentially- was offered 99k but feel like I’m worth $120k - especially when recruiters have offered me $120k at other companies for a non-management, individual contributor role.
Considering an exit to a startup that just completed a solid series B. They’re willing to provide competitive comp package and surprised how large the base is for a startup. Has me concerned about being on the high end and being the first person that comes to mind when it’s time to pinch a few pennies or clean up the books ahead of future rounds/IPO. Valid concern or am I overthinking it?
Recruiter tip: To make yourself stand out to candidates, try putting the salary range and WFH policy in the subject line to grab our attention :)
Does anyone have insight on what an offer should look like for an Experienced Associate 3 (2 YOE) in PwC management consulting? Specifically DDV? And how it would compare to comp for the same level in Deals Strategy (which is based on Strategy& payscale I believe)? Thanks
What's a typical M level bonus as % of salary? PwC and is it increased with firm performance?
MD (not direct manager) but work alongside them closely knows I’m unhappy and frustrated with role/comp. Has offered to be a reference if needed for external search. Some what rhetorical, but should I trust this person or should I be lips sealed until I find the next seat? Gut leaning toward stfu-ing
Can someone provide the salary expectation for each level for EY tech consulting from staff through manager? Wondering what to expect (just got an offer to switch firms, HCOL)
How do salary negotiations work? I might quit consulting but now have to negotiate salary with future employer next week. How to do this step-by-step? Have zero experience 🤷🏼♀️ (continued)
Will new employers be able to determine current compensation? Assuming it is a data privacy rule, but not 100%. Thanks in advance
Is there a reason to turn down a Job offer from Microsoft consulting services? -L63
Here is my situation - My firm wants me to stay and have matched the salary and topped it with retention bonus (makes me feel valued!) plus I have another offer from another Big4 - higher base pay than MCS (lower Total comp, because B4 don’t have stocks, etc), higher role and I know the leadership quite well (So faster promotions are very much possible).
Hearing mixed reviews about MCS.
Any advise/ pointers?
CMAAS individuals - asked this in another bowl but want to reach here too. 2 questions.
1) If external hire, what was your level and sign on? Salary isn’t negotiable is it?
2) Care to connect and discuss WLB and projects? Looking to get some information.
Does anyone have a copy of the employee compensation report? It outlines the average salaries for all positions in advertising?

Took the GMAT - decently happy -730 overall 45Q/46V/8IR. Background is Engineering from top 10 school but subpar gpa (3.3) undergrad, better for MS (3.7). Does my background help, or is my Q too low?
Is is just me, or are there way more openings for mid- and sr- level creatives and nothing for ACDs?
God bless document production center resources within firms. I don’t know I made it at my last firm without them. I can fully focus on thinking about content and not picking out icons all day.
Recommendations for LA? Staying around North Hollywood but willing to travel around a bit. I’ll have 4 full days there!
Does anyone know if there’s any MeToo events happening in response to the Weinstein verdict in NYC?
Need advice. My roommate has anxiety/depression and has been experimenting with drugs like ketamine. He’s always been super chill but freaked out on me violently last week over something small and made me feel super unsafe (I think he was on drugs). Found a new place to move to but idk how to tell him because idk how to react. I want to tell him the day I’m leaving when the movers come but I feel like that might trigger him too. Thoughts? I’d be ending our joint lease, I can afford it, he cant.

Two Schools (one M7 and one T15) admitted me with some scholarship money. Two other M7 (Sloan & Booth) waitlisted me. Assuming I get off the waitlist, is there any chance these schools will give me some merit scholarship if I negotiate? My guess it’s no but maybe someone here has direct experience
I am looking for referrals in Accenture for Pega technology. Any leads would be very helpful.
What to do if you have a substantial offer somewhere else, but don’t want to leave? The offer came through networking information conversations. I was not looking. Turning it down would be leaving a lot of $ on the table.
Holy s***. Just did my first Solidcore class and that kicked my butt.
27M in pretty good shape too and used to do orangetheory but I think that was the hardest class I’ve ever done
My full time freelance contract asked me if I would go full time (I’m about 2.5months in to a 3 month contract). They do good work. Has this happened to you, and what did you do and why?
Here's a pro tip that I tried today: when someone you dislike presents a different way of doing something, pretend they are repeating something that someone you respects said. it can help you make...
