Finally I have 2 offers to get out of this place. Both new roles are a step up and pay the same in federal space. One is a very small company doing a traditional SM of PMs role, non sdlc pmo work. Other is a large company as a Program Manager, overseeing a staff of ~25 doing sdlc- some agile. I eventually want to go big tech for an IC role. I feel like the smaller company position is more aligned with IC role. My only scare is I will be out of touch on emerging tech and practices.

5YOE in Analytics consulting Received an offer from a mid tier Bank for a Senior Manager of DS role within internal audit where I’d be leading all data related projects (dash boarding, ETL, analytics) for their IA practice but not performing IA. Offer is 195k TC . Been targeting tech but have failed at AMZN, G, PayPal, Coin for roles. Do I keep chugging along or take the TC bump and Title bump and try again in the future? Thoughts?

The manager guy said generally they put you at a low step so pay obviously isn’t spectacular. Now entering my 3rd year as a SM is it worth taking a pay hit or would you try industry?
