1.5 yrs into consulting and I feel like exiting. On track for a M promo in 3-4 months but have an opty to exit now into non-fang big tech. Current tc ~230k, big tech tc~ 250k. Should I make the plunge? Not sure if its worth waiting for M promo given im exhausted and dont see a future in consulting…anyone in similar boat?

Would strongly suggest getting the M title. It’s worth it long term as a quality signal, that you performed well enough to get promoted/weren’t counseled to leave.

This is probably the most valid argument for staying ^

Take a 2 week vacation (or just PTO and chill), stick out one more engagement to get the M title then leave. The above posters are right about getting the title. Unfortunate, but true

2 things to consider:
1. Make sure you're not exiting right before a bonus payback period if you don't have to

2. If you exit before M and decide to rebound you'll be back at SA.

S& M is similar to SA from what I’ve seen. So, if you can stick it out for a couple more years perhaps you can find a $300-350k exit

100% on board with SA1. I’m not sure where the confusion came from

What.. you’re at 230 as a consultant?

like

Yep, I’m paid like garbage and am not an MBA hire…

I understand logical thing maybe to wait it out 4 months to see the M title. My concern is I doubt exit opps may change drastically right away? I may need to wait out another 3-4 mos after M and im not sure if the total wait period is worth it…

Bird in the hand..

Stay the 4 months for promo, then another 3 months for bonus Sept 30, then might as well stay another 4 months for Manager bonus, another 2 months for get the additio al 20% vesting, then might as well atay another 3 for the next pay bump... rinse, repeat 🙃

Wait it out 4 months, not even a question.

Thanks folks. Not the answer i wanted to hear but i know is the right one. Ill slog it out for a few more months I guess. Thanks

Lol. Had a chat with him a few hrs ago and he wants to tale me to his next engagement. Fml

If you don’t mind me asking (happy to do it over DM) what is your exit? I am in a similar boat (3-4 months away from M) but am homegrown so much fewer total YOE, seems like it will be really hard to exit without a significant cut in pay

Total YOE?

YMMV here, but instantly started getting traction for Director + roles once I made M. In my case, cashing in my chips after the promo made a huge difference.

Hey all, 3rd party recruiter reached out to me about a job. We had interview which I think went well. I did not give my salary expectations, but the recruiter provided the hiring budget.

After sending resume, I am now being asked my current income. Seems expectation is ~20-25% comp increase when you change companies. Effectively it would be a promotion, but the budget would be significantly more than 25%.

Do I inflate my current comp? My wife said she had to find a paystub for her job.
