It’s not really a promotion if you’re being paid less...I would only take it if I loved the work/role.

So ask yourself: Would you do more work for less pay?

Yeah what part of it would be a promotion? And if you’re an analyst, does that mean you’d be paid around 75k at Salesforce/Airbnb? Sounds like an entry level job. I’d consider it if I’m new to consulting and really hate it and don’t wanna stick it out for 1-2 more years

It would be a promotion in the sense that it would have 1.title increase 2. Scope of responsibility increased 3. Directly reporting to member of leadership. In a sense, everything is a step up expect salary

My logic is long term: great brand, 1 more future step until manager. Is this logic flawed? I’m essentially saying I’ll take 20% less now, but could potentially exit internally or externally for a manager role 2 years down the line for 60% than what I’m making now

Depends on your current firm. Generally, yes, your logic is flawed. Exit ops with be better from consulting than a tier 2 FAANG, unless you’re at a no name consulting firm now
