Compensation

27 / 28 year olds. 5.5 year manager in tier 2 city. Is 165k / 15% bonus enough to jump ship for an industry role? It’s more than I make now...no mba

Few things to consider OP. How significant is the bump? Are you happy where you are at and do you see yourself in consulting long term? Do you have a family? What’s your current WLB like? Personally I would take it, $165k for a 9-5 job is a no brainer. You’ll have a life after work where you can be with your friends and family. A lot of folks on this app are stuck on the rat race, but you gota find a balance between work and life. I’m only saying this because I’ve spoken with several partners and the common theme of regrets is loss time with loved ones. A few were so stuck in the rat race that it lead to divorce. Just remember, the higher up you go in this business, the more sacrifices you’ll make.

If the industry job provides you with the intellectual challenge, room for growth in your responsibilities over time, and a good work/life balance I think this is a great move.

It’s all about what makes you happy. Will you be happy with the pay and job responsibilities? Also, I assume yearly raise in pay is minimal with industry.

I think it's good as well, but I'd also check if it's really a 9-5.

This is very high and well off the normal. Managers at Big4 with 10-15 years might not even make this.

If 9-5 or even 9-6, I think at 165k @ 27 is good. Yes, you don’t have an mba salary, but no, you’re not anywhere below or level with what the generally regarded “well off” 27-35 year old either. Worth noting you could potentially return to consulting for a raise with that industry experience

165 isn’t an mba salary? Thought that mba hires to industry make closer to 135 base (from top schools)

I’m considering the same general jump but hoping for 140 in Tier 3

Is it okay to wear an N95 mask now?? I know at the beginning all N95s we’re supposed to go to medical personnel, but I recently was given a new one from a friend and want to know if it’s acceptable to wear it, or if I should stick to my cloth mask. Note: don’t comment saying “you don’t need a mask”. I WILL wear my mask outside to keep others and myself safe; I’m just wondering if it’s socially acceptable to start wearing N95s if you have one.

Salary question - am I underpaid? I think I know the answer but I want validation from my peers to make an informed decision. I am an IT project manager with 5 yoe, PMP/CSM certified, government consulting, making 72k in DC. How much should I be making?

Recruiter gives salary range of 130-145k in initial convo. I say under 155k would be hard, he says “$10k higher, that’s doable.” Healthcare at company sucks - so Now want to ask for 160k. Is that ok?
