I hadn’t been planning to leave consulting, but ended up with an exciting tech offer and now I’m torn. Have been in consulting ~2 years, on the verge of being promoted to Manager level. Has anyone else chosen to leave earlier than planned? What made you decide to take the offer? Anyone who had an interesting offer but decided to stay?

TC YOE type of company needed.

TC $250k + $80K annual equity (pre ipo), fintech, 8 YOE

EMs/PLs can pull 400k+ in this market if you come with the right background and land the right role. But many also getting offers near what you have on end or even lower in non-HCOL.

If you want to be in growth tech I think it’s better to jump earlier—they typically care less for the consulting titles and better to grow internally. If you want to work at Google or other giant tech then staying can pay huge dividends as you can get promo in 1yr vs. 3.

SOS. How do I know if I’m being paid fairly? I feel as though I’ve grown out out the “coordinator” role, but my company insists that I “prove myself” and add more responsibilities to my plate to show I am capable before I am promoted. But I feel like I already am doing more than a coordinator title, and my job title is just wrong. Is that fair?

Hi Moms, just had baby #2 and we want to upgrade our family car from Toyota Rav4 to a 3-row luxury SUV that's nice looking inside and outside, reliable and has decent cargo space too. My husband doesn't like the exterior of Grand Wagoner. We are considering the Grand Cherokee, Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator. But I have read terrible reviews about Escalade. Folks seem to like GMC Yukon Denali but I'm worried it'll be too big for me to drive. Appreciate recommendations / thoughts. Thanks!

I applied few weeks ago to Moon Active’s QA bootcamp. Received a decline. I reapplied few weeks later while adding a personal note describing that I started taking few relevant Udemy courses. For my second application. And at the same time I messaged a link on LinkedIn and emailed a lead in HR department. But for my second time I didn’t receive any message. Was I marked by the company? Is it unacceptable to reapply for a job you’re dreaming about ? Is there anything to do now?
