12% is still more money and significantly less hours.

What M1 is discounting is bonus. I'm sure the 12% bump is salary only. When you factor in bonuses (much more lucrative outside of public) the total comp bump is probably in the 17%+ range. On a $85K salary that's almost $16K increase. Not sure what you consider significant to be M1, but I'd consider $16K comp increase to be significant.

Good luck

It's way more than the less than the less than 1% raise I got this year. Plus at this point going from an average of 60+hrs a week to 45 I'm ok with 12%.

Happy for you OP but keep in mind that 12% raise isn't that much

And the alternative would be stay in public with the lower salary because you didn't see enough of an increase? Sounds silly to me.

Things you can't buy with money: 1) time, 2) prolonged happiness, 3) less stress in life. The argument of don't leave if you make the same are only x% more is not a good argument if money is not the motivating factor to leave. People get rich or obtain upper (middle) class status outside of public as well.

You got this 🖐🏼

agree with M1, negotiate for more!

OP what city/market are you in?

Peace

Good luck, but FYI your annual raises will likely drop more than dramatically
