2nd year consultant exiting to bay area tech.
Have an offer for:
Base 200K /yr
RSU 165k /yr

Seems like a great offer? Financially any reason to consider sticking around in consulting? It feels like a take it and run moment?

RSU seems incredibly strong. Is this pre-IPO? Or are you existing into a development role? Congrats. Agree seems like a good move. You can always return to consulting if you miss the grind. Can’t always leave to lucrative offers on teams you’re excited about.

This sounds like a great opportunity. Anything holding you back?

May be naive, but don't think you can make anything close to that in consulting with 3 YOE.

This is a great exit - take it and don’t look back!

Only possible reason not to take it is if you are positive that you will make partner and will not make VP/Director at the tech firm and you don’t mind terrible WLB. So no reason to not take it.

TAKE IT! I accepted a similar offer last year and couldn’t be happier. As a fresh faced C1, I really wanted to make it at BCG...2.5 years on, as a jaded PL, I would’ve left for 10-20% less than what they offered.
Real talk - unless you have very strong mdp pull, are crushing it, and truly enjoy the work, there’s no reason to stay. You can always bounce back to BCG if you realize consulting is your calling

You’re getting 165k RSU per year? Or it it total 165k vested over x years? I’d check the vesting schedule and if you’re granted additional RSU’s annually. They do for engineers as an incentive to keep them at the company

I highly doubt the offer is for 165rsu/yr. double check that. Still more you make in consulting though

Ey1 - you don’t know what you’re talking about. I got $580k rsu vesting over 4 years, and know many people that make that with less experience than me

Congrats OP!! That’s amazing, take it! Do you mind sharing if this is a product manager role? Trying to compare it to other roles in a startup and it seems like it’s hard to even find a company willing to shell out 100 RSUs over 4 years lest 165 per year...

Guys FYI OP did that thing only MBAs do where they say YOE like it’s irrelevant that they are only giving you post MBA YOE. This will literally never make sense to me. Did OP black out post-undergrad??

To be fair OP did say “2nd Year Consultant” not 2 YOE, so close but still no cigar.

From a short-term pure financial perspective what is the total comp you are foregoing if you stayed as PL next year at BCG? And in what city? That offer seems very attractive but if you are coming from a lower COL city and a state with no income tax to the Bay Area it might not be a net gain. WLB aside.

Seems like a great offer, especially for a consultant!

Is it a FAANG company?
