Interviewing with BCG for Principal, Insurance Strategy. What should I expect comp and bonus to be? Just want to negotiate right.
Got promoted to senior 7/1/16. They changed up how they do bonuses so it's only one bonus paid out in Sept instead of 2 per year. I won't see a penny in bonus $ for over 16 months. (Assurance LOS)
Can we talk about comp for a minute? Curious on management compensation based on experience / segment. I’ll start: 150/150k, 40k RSUs, 7 yrs mgmt experience, 8 years AE. Primarily commercial segment Below Fortune 2000 companies. Variable is pretty spot on or above +10-15% given performance in a year. Please share actual attainment not advertised OTE. Thanks!
My most recent director told me that my time is being charged as Sr Consultant, so that’s the expectation for my performance. My title is associate, so two levels below a senior consultant. My last two appraisals have been scored against senior consultant roles, which my company has used to justify why I’m not eligible for a salary increase or promotion to consultant. Is this normal?

Just saw someone got denied from a job after counter offering in the coronavirus workplace bowl so wanted to gain thoughts from you all. I received an offer today from a great company and am considering counter offering for them to meet me in the middle since the offer is 20k below my current base salary. I’d like to counter for 10k more on my base salary. Has anyone experienced salary negotiations recently and are they working out?

Is anyone else having a hard time matching compensation? I’m currently making about $250k total comp. I’ve interviewed for several Director-level roles but most have total comp in the $190-220k range. Is it actually possible to keep my comp level or should I set my target lower?

Thoughts on this article? Seems like the authors bumbled a bit without really doing their homework. At least they were able to exit without loss. Very amateur. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/05/frank-and-stevens-excellent-corporate-raiding-adventure/521436/
Was laid off from my job today, which is a personal first. Was there for over 18 months. It was my first full time job in the industry. Is it a logical assumption to think this is the norm?
Body aches from sitting all day during this WFH. Looking to get a new chair with good lumbar support... any recommendations?
How do your companies recognize technical (e.g., STEM) accomplishments? I’ve heard of old school things like fellowships and “Distinguished Engineer” titles. Wondering what other places do now. I’m struggling to see where my path leads if I don’t want to be a people manager and instead focus on becoming a top technical IC instead. Are there clear paths for that anymore?
I feel like I’ve wasted 6 years of my “career” and with covid and no one truly hiring going to be 7. Sometimes I wish I just went to law school

Ladies, How can I support a friend going through mental health issues like anxiety and depression ? She is constantly going to her work computer even when she has nothing to do. She struggles to focus on other activities outside of work
Is it a vacation if your boss emails every 10 minutes *around the clock*? Stupid me let IT install Outlook on my phone. PEOPLE. If you are in leadership, have the good sense not to email your team ‘round the clock. ESPECIALLY if your employees have been generous enough to use their personal phones to keep in touch. They need a break from work and a break from you. Every time your name pops up on their screen, it’s a micro PTSD moment. Put that shit in your outbox and send it in the morning.
Worst onsite consulting locations? Mine was San Antonio... I have a tough time finding good eats in the area.🍗🍣🍔
