alright y’all, help a dude out. honestly, i am a slightly above average performer and only like to work 40-45 hours a week. i am just fine with my current role, there’s more interesting work that i would like to do and the exit options aren’t the greatest but the culture, WLB, and pay is fine enough at my role. i got an offer that is 85% higher than my current comp (base alone) but i know it’s gonna be a lot more hours and stress - easily 50-60 hours a week. WHAT DO I DO?

Take it and then you can always boomerangs or go somewhere else with better WLB

Man 85% is a fuck ton. But if you can afford your lifestyle and are happy where you’re at, then wait it out for a different exit opp. Flip side, you can also go back to your level if you wanted to after some time printing money

1. An Xtra 30k can be dumped in the s&p500 and will basically double every 8 yrs. 2. 50 hrs is an extra hr in the morning..60 hrs starts to push it. 3. Will your current boss, peers, etc stay the same indefinitely? 4. cant be faulted for doubling your salary. VAN HALEN SAYS...JUMP.

Is this EYP?

Dude. This is a no brainer question.

Jump and then start looking for a new gig in 6 months where you can retain your pay band but align with WLB / personal goals

Jump. An 85% comp increase justifies a 10-40% increase in work. In 2 years, you may be able to downshift to a role with the same higher pay, plus better wlb.

My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
