I just got an offer for 20% below my current pay but I hate my job and can’t bear to stay in it. The new company would be fully remote and the team seems infinitely more supportive than my current job. Is it career suicide to retrograde in terms of comp? Anyone been in this situation?

You’re basically saying that you think this job would make you much happier. Does anything else really matters?

I took a ~40% paycut a year ago and am beyond happy and thriving. If it works for you financially, do it. It does not necessarily translate to being less ambitious or taking a step back.

You mention remote… are you currently traveling / going into the office now? Don’t forget to compare the total costs (clothes, gas to office, etc) when comparing a remote role

Also, not career suicide you can always try and move up at the new gig

One weekend a month?! Yeah I’d definitely take the hit to get more time at home. I found that going from 80% travel > remote, work was still important for me but not my entire life anymore

Regardless I would absolutely counter their offer. It is very likely to at least come up a few percentage points

You should also talk to your future employer and share your concerns. Maybe it will help clarify or strengthen a path forward for future comp growth trajectory.

This is a legit question so don’t hate me just trying to understand if it’s worth it or not. What is the draw of applying to M7? I understand elite status, but based on research the median total comp for an M7 grad is 185k as of 2020 study (2019 data) and the average age of the students in these programs is 27/28. I know going to MBB they have pretty specific comp coming out for M7 grads but outside of those three firms, what is the draw? Trying to justify spending 200k for a degree.
