Hi all,

At a good T2 company with decent comp and WLB, well recognized in my country. However, i am mostly staffed on projects i don't really like (Implementation, ERP etc). Been here for 1y and 9 months.

Have gotten an offer from a small agency to do innovation and strat work, which i like better. Offer same TC, although progression is slower.

Plot twist: I am having a kid in january, and current employer offers 6 months leave with full pay.

What would you do?

I would stay. No point taking risk without reward, especially when a baby is coming soon. Congrats on that though!

Looks cool but would like an office in my home country. But thanks!

Have you been searching for a long time? From a T2 you can probably do better

Just started searching actively.
Have been dissatisfied with projects from the beginning. Have tried to move internally without any luck although i have got solid reviews.

Would prefer more innovation/strat/design work.

Don't know how it would play out if i applied for strategy roles in other consultancy firms.

Have to say that the agency offers a senior role with lots of responsibility but obviously more risky.

Stay
