I’m a Merrill Advisor based in the east coast, HCOL area and I graduated from our development program and joined a team making $90k plus paid on whatever I bring in. I’m interviewing for a private banker role at another firm where the base is $165k plus “discretionary” bonuses based on what I bring in. You would jump ship right?

Getting headhunted hardcore for a salaried banker position ($100k+ bonus) and right now I’m making $65-$70k as an FA in a development program. I’m hitting my tiers but I hate the program. This banker role would not have me in a program... what are pros/cons to leaving to go to a role like this?

I’m currently 28 weeks and just had a phone interview for a new job; throughout the course of the conversation I didn’t bring up that I’m pregnant. The hiring manager said the next step would be to come in for an in-person interview, and now I’m worried that this will somehow hurt my chances (even though I know it’s technically illegal to discriminate against women for being pregnant). Has anyone else had experience with this? Should I tell them now that I am pregnant?
