How much would you invest (cash and loan) for a relatively stable franchise that as a median number produce the following: $1.6mm revenue and $350m gross profit (royalty fees, staff, occupancy but no owner salary or loan amortization). Takes about 6 months ramp to that point.

Curious what everyone’s bonus structure for their admin staff is like this year? Obviously a crazy year and they came in almost every day among everything has happened and has done quality work. Do you base it off of growth at all? Percentage of salary? Doing anything outside of your norm for 2020?

Question about overtime on salary—if we’re on salary and working till 2AM, and not getting paid overtime due to being on staff, does that mean the agency is billing clients for all those extra hours and pocketing all of it? 🤔

Question for the fish who have been around the pond for 15 years...Has the average comp of big 4 staff actually trended downwards in spending power over the last 3 decades? Would be curious what a manager in 1998 made versus today adjusted for inflation.

Trying to think ahead. What is the best holiday gift you’ve gotten or could get from your manager? I’m looking for ideas other than alcohol, pay raise/bonus, extra time off. I’ve got those covered. Looking for actual ideas that would make my staff happy/special. Thanks in advance!

I’ve been proposed an exit as Product Owner at a real company, not a consulting one. Staff seems nice, good culture, good salary (less than consulting but well), BUT I would have to move countries for that job and start a new life. I’ve also been proposed a Manager position at a consulting company in my home city, with potential of bigger salary thanks to bonuses. Culture seems good... But I’m sure it’s gonna be a hell lot of work. Which one would you take? Should I exit and never look back?

Have a long term goal of growing a full service office. A team of wealth managers, planners, life insurance agent(s), PC agent(s), etc. with support staff as needed. Everyone has a role. My question is how should I structure the comp? No idea what’s standard in this structure or where to even research models in our industry. Any ideas?

Hello everyone, I would to hear other people’s thoughts. So my mom runs a company which her and other employees salary is paid by their members (trade association). She’s above 60 and takes a medicine which makes her a higher risk for COVID. The members are having a convention in Florida in a few months, and while “there’s no for staff to be there”.. she’s running the meeting so they’re expecting her to be there. She doesn’t want to go but feels huge Professional pressure. I think it’s CTD

Are you incoming staff 1? What’s your starting salary for your city and service line? I’m really skeptical that firms will be paying those of us that progressed less than incoming staff just out of my own experience where I came in as staff 1 earning more than the staff 2 when I started for the same service line.

I applied for a job and received an offer from my client. 15k+ bump in salary, better benefits/remote work, and responsibilities will give me exposure to all areas of the organization (start up). The problem is that they’re looking to staff me as a Senior when I’m currently a Manager at DT. They said they’re flexible on title, but curious to hear how others have navigated similar situations. I would report directly to the controller and have 1-2 staff reporting to me...

Staff two here and just got my new salary. Base is a measly $2,700 more than incoming hires. When you take into account their bonus our peer group makes 8.1% less than people with zero experience. How does this make any sense. Did leadership think this was a good idea? I’ve been reading a lot on fishbowl about managers making less than incoming MBAs. How is that fair? Think this was a really poor job of executing salary adjustments. Am I wrong or does there need to be a change soon

Interviewing with a company and agreed upon a salary with the recruiter. Now the recruiter is saying the company will agree upon the salary, but pay me reduced for a set-agreed time, which would likely bring me under 100k. This company also recently cut 20% of its staff. Any advice to navigate through this? It’s an employer market and they are spoiled for choice.

Small law question that may resonate with all: Signs you’re in a failing firm? Asking for a friend. He works at a firm that just cut two attorneys and three staff and imposed major across the board salary cuts as soon as Covid hit. All bonuses on hold. No end date provided. Firm ostensibly successful for many years prior.

My father has a very misogynistic view at the same time is struggling with severe depression, so anytime somebody counters his view, he gets really depressed and starts inflicting pain upon himself.

That does make me feel very guilty, coming here to get your thoughts on what should I be doing?
