I wouldn’t worry about job hopping from a visibility standpoint, especially in this market, unless you signed a 2-year contract or something. Bigger questions is how the move fits into your long-term goals. Exits tend to be higher if you stay in for longer, but in this instance, it’s looking like you could really accelerate a bit. Trade off would be in your trajectory. You may or may not rise faster, but you’ll also be in a more narrow scope. If you like that scope, then great, but if you want to pivot to something else in 3 years, you may have an easier time in consulting

Totally agree on the point about broader exit opportunities if stayed longer in consulting (but probably not my current company, lol). Thanks!

Which CRO? Culture varies widely between the big ones - have anecdotal experience with all top 5 big ones in US

Why not the external consulting team?

I had a 1st round interview last week and I didn’t love the sound of the job. It’s in higher ed. It would also be a 20k pay cut (105 -> 85). They want to do a final round with me this week. During the interview, the director who would be my manager said they are understaffed and very busy. She also said someone in this role needs to love working. I don’t necessarily want to transition to another busy place for a pay cut. The only perk I see is the time off university staff get and tuition...comt
