I chose ED because of my health issues. I dont want to dedicate my life to the firm. The pay is high enough to not consider industry. Im happy being an ED given my health and family situation

What I like about being ED, is that the partners are not competitive with me. They help me out, they guide and mentor me and they find work while I deliver for them.

I was asked to move for a client (“partner making opportunities”) a couple times and was not willing to let my life be dictated by career. I am now an MD and am happy with my pay and quality of life. Pay will never be partner grade and I will never have the same “clout”, and my voice will never be as meaningful as having the “partner” title which is hard on the ego but my life is very good. I would take this track all over again.

Current firm at SC level - 105k base, typically 10% bonus. Great WLB at the moment as I'm staffed on a very lax project that will run through 2022. Enjoy working with my team, no complaints.

Another firm I'm entertaining for an SC role - 5k sign on, 130k base. They're ramping up their practice so are looking for people with my specific skillset. Have heard good things about their culture but I take word of mouth with a grain of salt.

Salary bump worth the jump?
