Are you burned out and looking for better WLB? Depends on what is driving your decision. I took a 20% dip from similar to where you are now but over 5 years I am back where I was with much better WLB. Interestingly enough I am regularly recruited at Big4/Accenture to come in as Managing Director at $600+ but not sure its worth the WLB trade off.

Didn’t an AP recently join G at 800k as an L8?

OP , I have seen a lot of EMs leave at L5/ L6 roles at FAANG for TC around 300 to 400k . Most APs have left around 500 to 700K . Depending on your specific expertise , your exits can vary widely. google is definitely the highest paying exit (on average) and has a well defined path for AP exits . The others - not so much

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

Currently working in tax consulting at a big4 considering making the switch to strat consulting since I have internship experience at an MBB or move to a stratops/ bizops role in tech.

Should I go through the process with strat consulting firms or directly look into stratops?

With all this extra, often unnecessary, communication while my company works remote, I’ve been having an awful time getting actual work done.

HOLY SHIT. What a game changer. I can actually get work done guilt free. I realize not everyone is able to do this, but if you can, do it.
