Got an offer from Salesforce for Director of Customer Success: base - 190k, EOY bonus - 25%, equity - 120k 4 yr vesting. Is this competitive? 10 yrs of exp, currently a mgr up for mid yr promo to Sr manager at Big 4. Wouldve gotten promoted had it not been for Covid. Current base - 175k, EOY bonus - 25%. Roughly a 14% increase if i jump to SF but expecting similar total comp with my promotion. I like my job but hrs could be slightly better as im working 50-55 hrs which isnt bad for consulting.

I work for a big 4 firm in their consulting arm and want to test the market. I've got about 9 years of experience. My GPA in college was 3.55 overall, 3.68 for my major, and 3.7 for a minor. I still have it on my resume from when I applied to consulting a few years ago. Should I remove it? It doesn't take much space (I'm good at layout) and it's a pretty decent GPA, but my gf was surprised to see it on my resume still. Thoughts?

Odd question: I graduated law school in 1993 and walked away to be an entrepreneur in 2008. I loved my legal work and while I worked harder than I should have looking back; it was a great life. I now have a legal resource brokerage and since Covid I have been overwhelmed with attorneys wanting to step away from their firms to work with me. It is not the money because it is about the same. Has practicing law become that challenging since the pandemic started?
