If you're talking about total comp, that's less than I make as a first year SM...feels like you should have picked a higher number to make it a more compelling question

IT operating model / agile strategies. I deal more with how IT / digital is organized and broadly run rather than specific technologies

It depends. If the median family income in the country dropped to $2500 or something like that yeah I would stay.
