It's easier to exit from a larger corporation to a smaller one at executive levels than the other way round. You also have more runway at larger ones unless the smaller one you mention has massive growth potential

smart

I’d go with the bigger company personally, but I also prefer the stability of F500s. That part of the decision is personal preference. Is there any way to negotiate flexible work arrangements until the new office to reduce the number of days you have to commute 75min? Especially if they’re not yet mandating everyone return to office, maybe you could ask if you could go in 2-3 days a week?

I think the second role would be 9-6…eventually. But would definitely need to prove myself in the beginning, probably even more than the first job, because it’s such high visibility. I think the role itself is really exciting but given how covid has allows me to be really present in family life even the 1 day a week of travel is an unappealing thought. I think with the first role, they really “walk the walk” when it comes to culture (eg mothers, fathers, adoptive parents have 6 months full pay for parental leave) so it really is more family friendly (which is probably also reflected in pay). I think I am not thinking long term enough so your comment has really helped crystallise a few things!

and potentially P&L ownership after that. Role reports into C suite and frequent collab of exco. People are also smart with no ego, relatively flat working style. 4.5% pay cut and big bonus potential. 30 min commute to local office but Head office (at least once a week) is 2 hours one way, so a day there would be equivalent to a “travel” to client site. Mitigating factors: I have very young children and want to be present in their lives; I am the primary income contributor in my household; I currently work at boutique so a big name would be helpful on my CV

Immediate role is better in second job, probably the role after initial role is equal to role after first job. Hear you on smaller companies, I’m at a small boutique right now and love the tight knit feeling - but that’s also why I wonder if I need the bigger org for stability/name recognition.
