Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus

Any recommendation for a solo trip in the U.S?

Any other companies that you would suggest? I figure leveraging my medical knowledge would be best but I’m open. Thanks guys
