& pay quarterly bonus advances against potential year end bonus formulas, which I would be eligible for immediately. Historically I’ve been promoted regularly at each review (much older than my title says now!) and have never really been under a bonus structure, so I’m a bit scared of the uncertainty of it all. Is this a good deal? Are there any questions I should be asking them? Appreciate your thoughts!

I have always look at the base as my salary and anything on top as extra but not counted on. Quarterly bonuses are nice, but what are the key metrics you’re trying to hit for your bonus? What happens if you’re advanced and something falls through? Do they get to claw back? I would imagine you would have to set that aside even if they paid you in advance. Make sure your new role is more than a 10% pay bump and congrats!

I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!
