Spoke to a recruiter at EY prior to interviewing about comp. Agreed on 120k base for an SA position and now 2 weeks later they come back with mentioning they need to get PM approval as well as asking if I am firm on comp. Does this even make sense? I have 4 YOE within cyber and they mentioned after initially discussing that my experience may not be enough for 120k…
Would it be burning bridges if I were honest when putting in my two weeks/exit interview. I just want to say the reason I’m leaving is that I don’t think advertising is for me and I don’t enjoy it...
If your team is looking to add another analyst to “take on workload” but your own workload has been minimal, is this writing on the wall for you to find exit ops? I’ve been a good performer, but since Covid started, I’ve had barely any work to do - even including the self starting projects I’ve worked on. This is in industry btw. Thx 🐠

Is M&A experience a must for corp strat exit opps? Looking to move to industry- mainly tech corp strat roles. Would appreciate insights if anyone has had experiences in this move. HNY!
2YoE at Tier 2 FS practice, considering a switch to commercial law. Any thoughts on the long-term TC trajectory at MBB/Tier 2 consulting vs Magic circle law? Also on the stability of the respective careers? I have this perception that even if I don’t survive Commercial law, at least I can move to Swindon or Milton Keynes and retrain as a high street solicitor doing divorce filings making £50k for the rest of my career. Exit opportunity for consultants seems to be pretty bleak in UK.
Is Management/Strategy Consulting really worth the trouble? I currently work in risk/compliance engagements in and offered a role at a respected healthcare strategy consulting firm. Caveats are that..
I don’t want to burn my bridges, but my dream agency contacted me after being at my new job for a month! I’m all for sticking it out, but this other opportunity allows for more creativity, closer to home, and most likely better pay. Anybody ever been in this position, and what did you do?
New S1 here. What are the odds of landing a senior role in industry when you fit 60% of the criteria - is it worth applying or should I save my time? Feel like some of the years experience qualifications are a little pumped up
Do you think sales has a better trajectory/potential than PA? I’m hearing senior salaries being 25% higher than starting salaries and exit opportunities around 40-45% higher than starting salaries after slaving for 3-4 years. Meanwhile, sales you could make the exit salary numbers in your first year (and in some cases 2x as much even with the pandemic). What are your thoughts? PA is more stable, but I didn’t join accounting to be a CAO, I did it for money—- so where is it...?
Just got a 5% raise(not a flex). Do I put it straight into my 401k and get a little match (not too great but still something) or keep it liquid and save it for a house? I want to get into a house in the next year but only put 10% into retirement currently.
Just got an offer to work someplace else. Pay, PTO, medical and 401k seem good. What else could I try to negotiate?
Any fishes working 2 full time jobs simultaneously? What’s your experience like? Heard it’s been trending upward due to WFH.
I have an upcoming interview with on of the FAANG companies that was previously a client of mine. Is it ok to speak to the recruiter/interviewer about the details of the project I worked on. Or is that frowned upon and I should anonymize the project details?

I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?

Mind blowing question. If the big 4 were to be domestic US airlines, which one would they be and why. I say Deloitte is United, pwc is delta, ey is American, and kpmg is southwest. What y’all think ?
