25% bump needed, 50% if anything other than T2 Your network is so, so valuable

Would be careful because most firms have you restart the number of years in level...

@S&1, would you count Big 4 as T2? Offer is 33% on base, promotion to senior, and 5-10% more in performance bonus than current firm. Role is slightly deeper into a competency I would rather get away from, but having trouble changing my alignment at current firm anyways

Eh, that’s tough OP If you’re close to promo at your current firm, I’d hold off. If you’re not, I’d jump.

Been passed over for promotion twice (had support from multiple partners both times). Received the top performance rating every year since joining the firm (6 years), which I’ve heard is rare. When passed over, the partners say there were others who have been waiting longer (not necessarily with the highest ratings) and that I should “keep doing what I’m doing” and basically wait my turn. Anyone else face this and have any suggestions/guidance?

I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role.

I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?
