Hi everybody! 😊
I've been working as a Junior Analog Design Engineer for a year and half.
I received a proposal for a Senior Analog Designer role from Bosch in the same city where I am currently working.
Should I wait and build up a few more years of experience before accepting a Senior role or should I jump in and work to fill the gap?
Next year, there will be an important deadline for the project I'm working on and my resignation could be critical for the team, how would you deal with it?

Why would you need to build up more years of experience if you're already being offered a higher position? I doubt you would be getting an offer like that if you weren't capable of handling it

How sure are you that you can afford to pass up on the promotion now and still get it later? Some chances don't come twice

Would it be possible for you to accept the new role AND have time to train someone to assume your responsibilities so that your departure isn't detrimental to the team?

First question should be, do you even want the job in the first place? If so, I don't see a reason to delay your growth.

I hear you on not wanting to leave your team hanging, but as long as you're working there, there will always be a next project that you'll be needed in. If you wait for the perfect moment to make the switch, you might just miss out on a lot of opportunities while waiting around. I think it's in your best interest to take the promotion and do your best to set up your team for success without you

You don't always have to take the promotion, here's a pretty short article on when it could be a good idea to not do so: https://www.recruiter.com/recruiting/should-you-always-take-the-promotion/

I'm a big proponent of taking promotions whenever available, I enjoy the challenge, it allows me to keep developing my skills, and the added pay is always a nice bonus. Those years waiting around to "build up experience" could be spent becoming a more proficient senior member and accelerating your path forward. Just my two cents

If you're already getting offers for senior roles I doubt you'd have to wait too long to gather experience. Realistically, what's the minimum amount of time you need to stick around to see that project through?

Anyone willing to DM/maybe give some advice?

Assuming both firms agree to similar pricing, when would people use biglaw versus a smaller firm (~100 lawyers) with equally (if not more) qualified people on the particular deal? This is for a decent size (~50 million) corporate transaction but within both firm’s capabilities. Basically are there situations where you use biglaw because it’s biglaw, even if smaller firm can do the job?

Anyone else required to put together completely unrealistic timelines?

Upper management's direction is to put together the most aggressive deadlines we can. If we think a project will take 16 months, make the plan for 10 months then there's a chance we may launch in 13 months.

I understand that time to market is important in consumer product goods, but being constantly behind schedule and rushing everything is terrible for the team's morale.
