Currently leading product at an early stage startup nearing PMF but may have an offer in industry for a senior global role in a leader within my industry of choice. Feel like I'm dicking over the startup after they took good care of me but tough to turn down this kind of offer

I work at a scaling startup and I’ve personally seen many of the leaders who helped achieve PMF suddenly resign (ie get sacked) while they brought in more experienced C-Suite. The old guard didn’t do anything wrong but they just weren’t a fit (I guess?) for the company stage. Honestly your current startups investors might even insist that you get sacked. All this to say that you shouldn’t feel too much of a sense of loyalty, dis business after all

As others have said I wouldn’t stay for loyalty reasons. I’d only stay if that’s what I thought that was the better decision for my happiness or career. If you are certain that the BigCo job will be better for you, then I say go for it.

Point of the post - do I just get over it and take the offer since who knows about the startup? Or do I stick it out

MKe sure you've vested some, document your efforts, take the new job

I understand the feeling, but know that whatever loyalty you show now may not be reciprocated if/when things become difficult for the company in the future.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Should I be blunt when saying why? Would anyone here have actually appreciated to hear this if you were in a leadership position at a start up, or is co-founder status too late to make a change anyway?
