How soon is too soon to leave a job? I applied for a bunch of different positions at once and accepted the best offer I received after interviewing. Fast forward three months and one of the companies that didn’t answer me initially reached out with an offer that is $75k higher than what I’m making in my current job. Feels really hard to pass the offer up but I don’t want everyone here to hate me…

The only one who cares about your best interest is yourself. Do what is best for you and you alone. Just don’t make it seem like you are constantly hopping. I myself did not follow this advice and it seems fine haha I have 2-3x what I did after grad school 4 years out so it was worth it for me and I have no regrets. Switched job. 3 times in those years but now I am stuck as I cannot find a way to make more money at my experience level 😂 good problem to have I guess haha

But seriously take it man especially if you believe you will also develop a skill set long term which employees and you find valuable

Before I would look for at least a 30% hike each job switch to make it worth it but now it’s just 20%. Make each job worthwhile as possible.

I understand you. I think we have a issue with loyalty, and worrying about what ppl think even when we probably wouldn't see those ppl again. But you need to do what's best for you. When you walk out that door and don't come back, no one is really thinking of you beyond the fact that you gave your supervisor more work.

However, is this a big pay jump?

If not, then you need to think about what are your benefits now vs what you know about the new job. Are you happy where you are now? Benefits package and pto (wlb)? Flexibility? Location? Cost of travel? Do you like your office prople and aesthetics? Do you have a desk/ cubicle/ office? All things you need to consider. I would say anything below a $5k difference you need to consider these questions.

Screw what they think it’s 75k lol. Always look out for yourself

Yup, also all raises and salary increases from changing jobs will now be based on that extra 75k salary

75k higher?! What company is this?! Asking for a friend lol 👀

Look at it this way, if the organization where you are currently at felt there was a need to lay you off this afternoon, they wouldn't hesitate. They would be making a decision that they thought was in the best interest of the company with little to no regard as to how it would look letting you go so soon after hire. So with that in mind, if you think this other opportunity is a better one, I would jump all over it.

I’d ask more questions. Sometimes when things too good to be true, they usually are.

Many people just got their bonuses so I expect there will be waves of people leaving. You never know what you are walking into.

Let your manager know you love the company, but you've this amazing offer. They might be able to increase enough you'd want to stay.

If not take the opportunity, early in your career job hopping doesn't look awful, especially for that jump.

Guys is not 75k more, she's just saying it's higher than her current pay. If that was a case, this wouldn't be an offer to debate.

Commas are important lol

The challenge by FA1 is the the pay is $75k, which happens to be more than the current pay, which could be $70k for example.

The supporting claim by FA1 is that this would not be a debate if the pay actually 75k greater than current.

Perhaps they’re correct if strict information speaking of salary and total compensation follows suit. But on the other hand, what is 75k and reputation impact for a position that’s already 300k in total comp (TC). Likely to be the first scenario, supporting FA1’s claim

Be honest and put it to your manager. They will understand - if they want they can counter offer but in that situation as a manager I’d advise you to follow what you think is in your best interest. Questions to ask yourself first. Is it comparable in terms of job security/career progression/work-life balance? If yes and you’re not just moving for the money then go for it. If there are major compromises to be made then just know that the money comes eventually if you’re in a place that offers good progression and wlb .. so hopefully it’s a win-win situation.. Good luck
