What would you recommend - start May or October?

Currently wrapping up my first year at Deloitte doing strategy and innovation projects.

I don’t apply for tuition reimbursement at Deloitte and I eventually want to shift to product marketing and tech. Would an MBA make sense for my situation? I wonder if it’s worth staying through a promotion then applying. I’m 27 and wouldn’t get promoted for another year at least.

I currently work as an engineer for the utility industry and have been offered a position as a project manager in healthcare. The base pay is the same as what I’m currently getting.

I’m really tired of my current job but I feel like the offer isn’t good from a financial perspective. Any tips or insight that could help? Should I try negotiating?
