Should I potentially take new role with 38% increase in base salary? I currently make $126k base with ~10% bonus with 2 YOE. Great WLB, WFH 4 days a week. In final round at Private Equity fund where I would be their main technology liaison between deal team/portfolio managers and the programmers/IT people at the firm. I would be the only person on the team. Comp would increase to 175k base w/ 20% bonus but I’m assuming my WLB would disappear. Need some advice. Thanks.

Has anyone experienced a Director who does not communicate properly and then blames their team for their own lack of communication and gives contradictory feedback? What can I do to avoid getting thrown under the bus for something I was incorrectly briefed on. And yes this Director is a woman. She acts very fake and nice to me but when it comes to HR she's very fast to blame me for something I activated that she never updated me on the client strategy. Has anyone experienced anything similar any advice? I'm puzzled why she is so quick to throw me under the bus and set me up for failure instead of properly communicating with me and the team underneath her.

Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that.

I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.
