Got an Assoc. Principal offer from IQVIA launch strategy group, also interviewing with ZS Growth Marketing strategy group for M role. If I land an offer from ZS as well then any suggestions which one is better from work quality, future prospects and career progression standpoint; also any notable difference in culture, WLB and compensation? Another question - how much room is there for salary negotiation and sign on bonus at both companies? (More interested in IQVIA as have an offer at hand rn)

If you don't have the title you don't have it...think about it this if ZS M then you have to climb twice however of AP then one jump to P which one will you choose even if compensation is off by 20K a year...think through it

I turned down IQVIA AP-role and the Partner told me I’m welcome any time I change my mind. If ZS is a better fit for you, take it and rest assured the jump to IQVIA will always be there. Good luck!

Yeah. The levels don’t line up.

No brainer ZS. Also a ZS to Iqvia jump is the easiest thing in the world (the pick up anyone who wants to voluntarily or forcefully leaves ZS) so you can do it any day. 😂

True take the AP role at IQViA Zs is growing so post 24 months see if AP role is open at Zs. ZS does hire AP directly then try to get into ZS as AP. You'll have the tile prestige comp and list go on.

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

Anyone else feel like their actual work is very disconnected from their paycheck? If I do a great job and create a ton of value for the client I’ll get a maximum of a 15% TC increase YOY (much less due to covid). Similarly if I do the absolute minimum it’s really hard to be fired since I’m in a hot market and they can’t decrease my TC without cutting my base pay (which I’m 99% sure they won’t do). And my raise/bonus won’t even necessarily be indicative of my performance anyways.
