ace the kind of vision and reachback D has but i can pass up the early promotion and pay increase. So I’d like to go, make the best impact I can for a couple years, then come back to D at the Mgr or Spec Master level. Thoughts?

Takes years to build your brand. If you want to untimely make partner, stick around and a year or two here won't matter. More important that you create as much support around you as needed while staying at D. If you want to eventually go to the industry, better title will improve exit opps.

No guarantee they’ll take you back at same level and comp, either. More than likely, if you return, they bring you back where you were when you left.

So when people boomerang, they usually boomerang back at their old level?

Seems short sighted if you want to make partner at your current firm I’d only go if you don’t want to come back.

It’s an opportunity to get more $, accelerated promotion, work at new firm is more aligned to what i want to do, and it’s in commercial (currently GPS)

I’m being promoted to Manager this November but recent got offer from a fintech.
