I am debating an offer from Northrop Grumman (in DC area). It would be a 10k paycut, going from 105k to 95k. Currently in industry right now, and prior to was in federal consulting. The benefits seem great at NG and work life balance seems awesome. I have a pretty decent work life balance now, when we’re not in the middle of integrating a new acquisition. Current company is also pretty lax about drinking (some ppl drink in the office) and overall less strict. But the place is a disorganized cont

Wait for a better offer, don’t take a pay cut unless it is for strategic growth. This isn’t.

..Mess. They’re also forcing folks back into the office and people are quitting by the masses. I don’t know what to do. Do I wait for a better offer?

If people are quitting in droves, can you leverage it into a salary increase or promo?

What are your YOE? What role? What sector?

How many hours per week do you work? I disagree that you are definitely taking a pay cut here. We need more information to really determine if this is accurate. Below is just an example. NG (95k) + OT (10 hours per week) = $118,750 base Current employer $105k (50 per week no OT) = $105k. See my point? Your base pay might be lower but if you compare how many hours you’re working you wouldn’t be taking a pay cut but receiving a raise.

A paycut?! In this economy?!

Wait for a better offer, not sure what part of NG you will be working for but I have not really heard good things

“I have not really heard good things.” Can’t you say that about 90% of the organizations you hear about on this app? LOL I’ve only been here a couple of months and that’s mostly all I hear.
