Fish, would like thoughts on this exit Opp:
Applying for a Product Owner position at a Pharma company for one of their Salesforce orgs, which is my long term goal. However, the position is at M level and high end of salary band is $160k base, which is the level/base I’m at now.
I’ll be up for promo to SM in the coming months, so wondering if I’m selling myself short going for a lateral or possible step down for the role. Ctd

I would hold out. Doesn’t make sense for you to take a shortchanged position if you don’t hate your current role.

I don’t *hate* my current position, so don’t feel I need to jump right yet. I also worked as a contractor at this company prior to my current position, so have a good chance due to the relationships I made there.

Should I go for it or hold out for potentially something better?

I will do it if salary difference is not huge. Obviously, you will be considering other factors too like WLB, travel etc

I am very new to consulting though I have almost a decade of experience prior. Both of my 1st 2 clients offered me jobs and told me they'd beat my current comp.

They're interesting jobs but it's not like I'm burnt out or anything. I just got here. I just don't know how common this is or if this is something I'll have to wrestle with continuously. Wondering others own processes/considerations.
