I recently received an offer for a Finance Manager and earning the same amount I earn now (no room budge nonprofit org). Today I received an offer for a senior analyst position with what would be a 20k increase salary. My dilemma is the salary and title. The salary increase would help tremendously but the ultimate goal is to steadily progress in my career. Not sure if I should forward with the manager or the senior analyst role. Advice?

Everything depends on you, 20k is huge. To me, job title is just a mirage. Income, job security and job satisfaction is very important.
On the other hand, all that glitters are not gold. You could go for the other job because of money and not find joy or satisfaction in it.

Official Title doesn't matter. The experience you gain at your role does. Unless there is a good reason due to company culture, career progression, or otherwise, I'd take the higher pay.
Just because the job title has the word "manager" is it doesn't mean it's more prestigious

I think it depends. Ask for salary ranges or market ranges of those positions.

You could be top of senior analyst making it hard to move up or be bottom as a manager with room for salary growth.

It’s up to you if $20k will make a difference to you. Explore work life balance and benefits and whatever else. I like would give up 20k to work in a place that will make me happy w good energy vs w more money but less happiness.

I say compare the job description rather than the title. Whichever one gives you the best responsibilities that make you the most valuable sounds best. But 20k is definitely a big difference

I would take the 20k salary increase. Titles mean almost nothing during interviews, often times you can get your title changed as you are in the company longer. My titles have always been inflated. For example, I was a lead financial analyst at a health insurance company, but I was the only analyst on the team... LOL, I've had three other titles similar to the one I just mentioned.

I just received an offer for a job I am very excited about. Base is within reasonable range and I will likely go back and ask for a bit more there. The company also offers a yearly cash bonus based on the performance of the company as well as a stock grant. Those are determined based on percentages of base salary. My question is: are those percentages typically negotiated or set based on position?

This was in July 2022. Should I be worried that it won't happen or should I start looking for the switch.?
