I like my team at D and the work is pretty chill. Getting paid 90k base with 1.5 YOE. However I have an offer at another big 4 (Not KPMG) for 130k base, with a title increase. Not sure if I really vibed with the people I met during the interviews. What would you guys do? Stay or jump to the competitor?

Damn that sucks man, definitely yes if KPMG but you don't want to take a step down and end up at EY or PwC.

Go to the new firm, cruise for a year then take a bump and come to KPMG 🤷‍♂️

I would jump bc I have a naive belief that I can get anything done as long as I work hard enough. Also the $. I also am not at the point where I appreciate a WLB. However, if you’re not in any rush and you’re confident you can find some better options (in terms of vibes, maybe not compensation), I don’t think it would be a bad idea to keep looking.

1. Slim to none. I have low utilization and have just been cruising. My 1.5 YOE is realistically just 1 YOE. 2. That's unknown. The senior I did talk to said she's on 2-3 proj atm, but they are hiring like crazy for the team.

That is a big jump, but understand your hesitancy. Really depends on which company and what specific type of work you’ll be doing - which one is better known for your skillset? Also since it’s clearly either EY or PwC lol would you rather have unlimited PTO or a potential PTO payout whenever you do leave? Will you be going into the office or permanent WFH? Helps if you personally know 1 person there already (can’t speak for PwC, but being at EY has been tough not connecting with folks) are both options consulting or is one advisory and the other consulting? (Choose consulting for your career) is it completely a lateral jump, including level? Or moving up a level? Just some q’s to consider when you try to make this decision.

like

Maybe you can meet with a few more people at the new company to help you make a decision? I would also try to think a few years ahead. Despite the salary I would not make the jump if you end up doing less interesting work that may not be aligned with your goals. You can also tell your coach that you have received an offer and you are very seriously considering it as the pay is significantly better, but that you also don’t necessarily want to leave as you like the team and work at D. This can help you get a pay bump where you are.

like

Other than culture, WFH, benefits what’s the exit opp? I’d weigh pros, cons and strategize the next move before taking the offer quite frankly. Also because the work is chill, can you start working a side hustle and grow it into a $40k revenue side business down the road? That might be something to consider as your business is yours. No one can fire you. The other thing is 40k difference after tax is $25k give or take. Buy assets, throw it into SPY or QQQ would average 8-10%/year. Inflation and low rates benefit asset holders. So $25k now is actually $50k in 7 years (Law of 70). Totally up to the OP assessing pros and cons.

You're spitting facts, consulting leadership wanting us to think about long term financial benefits of being partner while being underpaid tens of thousands every year for 10+ years is insane. Even if I make partner eventually, I'd probably still be worse off financially than leaving after 2 years if I just invested the extra cash into an index fund.

At EY. The range of work between seniors and staff (entry level) varies so widely that I doubt you’ll be expected to work any differently than you are now. Take the 💸

If you’re never challenged in your current role what makes you think you would even be ready to perform at the next level regardless of YoE?

Exactly. my 1.5 YOE is realistically 1 YOE. But I like money and feel like I can do it, but idk if I'm signing up for too much.
