How much of a salary increase would be minimum for you to exit consulting?

I joined Dtt a year ago to build my network, learn, grow, not because of salary. I’m now getting offers that are *significantly* higher than my current salary, I’m talking almost double.

Role offers are semi-technical (think process, BI, etc), but my core passion is strategy. Whilst I’d likeish what I do, I’d become more specialised, which I don’t want.

Would you go without hesitation, or trf to internal Snr Str role?

Strategy has less of an obvious career path on the industry side. If you want to do strat, it's probably best to stay. The question is, why? Do you like the challenge and the ambiguity?

Be careful with chief of staff roles. Sometimes the work is strategic and business critical. Other times, you're making mother's day cards and making bio slides and ghostwriting emails. Really depends on what that specific opportunity wants.

How do you know that your passion is strategy? Maybe think what about it is exciting to you and how you can get that in the jobs you’re applying for and getting. Not sure I’d be passionate enough about most things to disregard doubling in my salary

And that’s exactly why it’s conflicting, I don’t know how much I’ll get when I apply internally, almost certainly not as much. Double is a lot of money. Then again, work will align more with what I like.
