Would you work with a partner you’ve worked with before, but didn’t enjoy working for, if it meant a 25% bump in salary?

Define didn’t enjoy - are we talking "uninspiring" or "nightmare"?

Okay I’m imagining my Ex-McKinsey, Ex-Goldman Sachs, Harvard Business School graduate, MAGA hardo partner in the prime of his earnings potential who just gave me my first “Needs improvement” review on a Due Diligence and I want to cry.

“Didn’t enjoy” need clarification. Was it just boring work or did I hate every waking second of my life working under this person?

It was working for a person with poor management skills

That 25% bump in salary will have an impact on your future salary and bonus for a very long time. Working with a director you don’t like can be good for you as well if viewed as an obstacle to overcome. Take the cash, read The Obstacle is the Way - Ryan Holiday, and come out on the other side a better consultant making more money. Best of luck!

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Consulting vets, normal? I was lured into consulting and lost benefits due to the challenging transformation program being right up my alley.
