Got a healthcare hedge fund analyst offer with 150K base and up to 250K bonus. With comp increase potential but no clear path to be promoted to portfolio manager given the fund size. I have 6 YOE in consulting and a PhD in life sciences. Lifestyle is not much better than consulting. The hiring manager tried to convince me with “long-term upside” but of course cannot commit to anything given the fund is new. Thinking I should turn it down but wonder how others think

Currently a first year analyst with a TS/SCI full scope clearance. Yet at my firm I’m paid the same as my uncleared peers because you don’t receive a clearance bonus until a few years down the road. Are there places where I could receive a big pay bump for my clearance or since I’m so new to the game would it be wiser to stick around even without any reward for the clearance?

So I’m a second year consultant. Like most, I was disappointed with compensation this year and am pretty bearish on my future earning potential here. I’m currently interviewing with a big tech company (not FAANG but close) for a position with substantially higher pay as a business analyst. I really wanted to stay til SC/M but the money is too good to pass up. I guess my question is: are there any major downsides to exiting to industry “too early?” Has anyone done it and regretted it?

SO is at the offer stage for a fintech. It’s a compliance analyst level role and a lateral move. The trouble is that the offer came in at the same point as her current salary at a bank. The recruiter made it sound like we don’t negotiate with candidates and it’s an exploding offer. After considering the usual tech perks like discounted ESPP, the offer improves marginally. Unsure if it is the recruiter playing hardball or if they truly don’t negotiate for compliance analyst roles. Any advice?

When it comes to YOE in regard to salary, does it count if it’s not in consulting, but contributes to the skills required in the particular consulting role? (E.g., was an intelligence analyst, consulting role requires analyzing data and deriving insights, etc.)
