Titles vary from firm to firm and industry to industry so I don't think they matter that much. Money is money though so all other factors being the same I would swap title for a significant pay hike just about any time.

That's not necessarily a title cut either. In tech, a Lead is not considered less than, it's just considered more technical than.

It just feels like I can’t have anything. I already don’t have many friends, family etc. Work is my main thing and I do generally enjoy it but it’s hard to get/stay motivated when I’m this isolated/depressed. I’m well-regarded but also not seen as the best/promotion material, at least yet. Just got scolded and it is so disheartening when I need to get myself motivated to work a ton this weekend regardless. Just venting, but happy to hear thoughts.

At a boutique firm for just over a year, I know this isn’t the best place for my growth, but a promotion is coming. Am I better of sticking around or try to go to MBB or big 4 at an associate level?

Would you rather get big raises when firm does well and no raise in a bad year or get similar raises each year?

I just started at a new company 2 months ago with the expectation of having 3-4 people on my team. However, my team size will be increasing to 7. I don’t really want to rock the boat so early at my new job especially since I’m still in the “drinking from the firehose” phase, but this is going to be a significant increase in responsibility. We only have pay review in January of each year. Would it be crazy to ask about a raise later this month?

I currently work at a big start up and made a lateral move to another team a few months ago with five years experience. Since then , I’ve created a whole new service line and took over many of my managers duties. As I took a paycut to join this team - I’m pushing for a raise and title change. Is this reasonable?

I recently moved out of my apartment complex 2 weeks ago and ended my lease early because I had to move for work.

After looking the lease, I found the clause but I really don’t want to pay especially when they made the mistake on not billing me and are just now following up 2 weeks later. Advice? Ideas? Similar situations?
