I'm one of the top rated associates in my advisory practice (currently in high demand) and have been (verbally) promised a "large" raise come year end.
All else being equal, I'd like to stay at my firm, but the pay is shitty.
I've been interviewing in industry and the numbers being thrown around are +50% what I'm getting now.
I was thinking if I stick around, my Big4 firm will be good to me.
Too optimistic? Any S1's out there getting north of 100k?
