Do you think you'd enjoy the alternative investment opportunity more? I wouldn't reject the offer in hand for a potential opportunity. You can always accept the new offer if it comes and withdraw your acceptance.

If you don’t want the VC role, I’m happy to take it.

What would be your role or position in the VC fund? 350K seems like it’s VP level? Or back office?

Will they give carry for such a role? How is that looking?

I'd be straight with both firms. Talk to investment firm first to see if you can get them to commit to a timeline, and then ask tech firm to delay decision date. At that level of comp, I'd be shocked if they tried to twist your arm too hard.

What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting. One is the typical longer hours like 55 hours or more during busy season and the other one is 40 hours a week all year long with a reduced salary, almost like a reduced schedule employee. The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?
