Stay. It will be a longer path to M

I don’t agree with EM that it will be a longer path to M if you go to EY depending on how you work. I had a friend leave a no name firm at SC, went to EY and made M in 2ish yrs. It’s possible. In terms of trying to leverage the offer for more money at D you could try but it could fall flat. Is making M in a certain amt of time important or would you rather a bigger salary?

SC at EY is roughly the same level as C as Deloitte. EY doesn’t have Analysts as far as I know

I’d say apply for the other offer, see what you get, and consider that as leverage. But as someone else said, you need to be ready to leave if they say no, so consider are you ready. If you have a good rep/connections you’d have to start from scratch. Also, remember you can only pull out this card once, and either way you’re screwing old firm vs. new firm. Considering its a pandemic, they may not want to budge. Consider maybe saving it for a later higher promo too. Best of luck!

Just remember if you try to leverage an outside offer and it falls flat, you better be ready to actually leave. If you don’t you’re not going anywhere in the company

SC at EY is same as C at Deloitte... also if the recruiter just reached out, then get an offer before having such dilemma

D1 is not wrong tho? This is hypothetical with no offer on hand. I was in this situation 2 years ago and got a counteroff.

if the money is better and the promo (assuming SC at D = SC at EY, idk if that’s true) is now, leave. if a high performer goes from SC -> M in 2 years at both, you just saved yourself 6 months and make more money. you’re not burning bridges. people leave all the time. people come back all the time. that’s how you get to the top of the pay band.

Now is the time to switch and get that raise.
