I tell people to bounce all the time so don’t take this as bias in favor of ACN, but Dell’s prospects over the next Decade are suspect. If you’re going to leave for a relatively minuscule bump, at least go to a company that isn’t in its slow death spiral.

Thank you all, I also feel that going from Accenture to Dell isn’t an upgrade. At Accenture, we get exposure to latest projects, where at Dell it will be old hardware stack, that’s it

People have been calling for Dell's demise for longer than I can remember. The company is not going anywhere. If the work you'd do there is interesting and relevant, go for it.

I favor Dell not because Dell is a great destination for the next 30 years, but because working there will get you into product management. Go to Dell for 3-5 years, get your equity, then play up your PM experience, and then jump to another firm.

Agreed, but wouldn’t that pigeon-hole me into “Hardware” PM, of which there are not great career options

As a second year consulting analyst/staff, how much money would you leave for? Have an offer in the works from one of the tech “unicorns”. Current pay is 70K. On track to make senior in 8 months; tech offer will probably be around 105K (maybe more) based on my research. Wondering if I should wait to leave or bounce. I don’t have hopes for raises/bonuses this year yet again at my current firm 🙃

Currently living with parents and having trouble deciding what to do when I move out.

On the other hand, rent in my area is 2-3 times the cost of a mortgage payment so it feels like I’d be throwing excess money away.
