Got an offer to join another firm consulting firm with a 38% pay raise. I’ve only been at my current firm for over a year now with ~3 years experience. Is it too soon to jump after only one year?

take it. you can easily explain it by telling the truth. no consultant would hold it against you.

Did u interview and got the offer? If u interviewed, then u already thought about leaving...

Gotta do what’s best for your own career! It’ll look bad if you KEEP doing it. But if you like the new company and culture and stay longer than a few years, you should be fine.

Fair point, but I’ve only been passively looking at job opportunities partially to keep my interviewing skills sharp, partially to be wary of other consulting options. I feel like I’d be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t at least passively look.

I don’t want firms to look down at the fact that I’ve “job hopped” too much early in my career.

That’s a pretty huge bump, personally I’d take it unless you have specific reservations about the firm who made the offer.

Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project. I’ve also asked for a raise multiple times and have been told no. I’m underpaid but am up for promotion this year (June). I don’t think Deloitte can/willmatch. I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)

Imposter Syndrome - help! I just got the best job offer of my life for a client side position. I’m talking a $30k raise. But it is a LOT more responsibility and I can’t help but feel insane imposter syndrome. They are putting a lot of faith in me for this role and it’s a brand new position internally so there is a lot of pressure to do well. It has me questioning all my qualifications… I recognize there are things I can bring to the table but there is a lot I have to learn in this role.

Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
