How do you decide when/what is a good exit? Do you have your own hurdle rate, checklist or criteria?

I am very new to consulting though I have almost a decade of experience prior. Both of my 1st 2 clients offered me jobs and told me they'd beat my current comp.

They're interesting jobs but it's not like I'm burnt out or anything. I just got here. I just don't know how common this is or if this is something I'll have to wrestle with continuously. Wondering others own processes/considerations.

30%+ higher than ur current TC is when you know it’s a good exit

The key to maximizing salary is hopping every 2 years (at least that’s what I was told). If that 30% isn’t enough in 2 years, rinse and repeat

Please dont look at this as a flex by the way. I am really looking for insight/help here - especially from those who have been consulting for a few years. Thank you.

Hey everyone! I’ve been an SDR at my current company for 8mo and an opportunity in the AE role came up but my boss (male) said he wanted me to have more experience before promoting me. Offered me a CSM role at the end of Q4 but then I found out he is promoting the other SDR (male) who has 4 months less experience than me and has by no means proved himself. So long story short, I’m pretty upset about the blatant favouritism and looking to move. Anyone have any CSM or AE roles open??
