Take it. Most people end up leaving anyways, after they negotiate with their current firm

Take it. I doubt your current firm will match

I think he’s asking if he should negotiate with the new firm for an offer above 125k. It depends, some companies don’t negotiate and put their best foot forward. However, likely doesn’t hurt to ask and negotiate respectfully with the new firm. Regardless it’s a big jump!

$125K for an associate 3.5 years out of school going to a small firm? Unless you’re coming from McK where associate means more it sounds above market to me so I’d just take it!

Take it. I wouldn’t even negotiate after a pay raise that large

Congrats! Sounds like you were happy with the offer before and now you're just even happier 😊. I wouldn't negotiate any further at this point. Hopefully all the other aspects of the job/offer are what you're looking for too!
