The world has 7 billion people , they can find someone easily to replace you , but you can’t find such great opportunities easily. Someone somewhere will give everything for this offer. Don’t overthink, be your own best friend and leave. Fly brother fly

This sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 60% bump is lifestyle-changing, and sets you up for long-term financial security. Take the offer, if you hate it after a year then beg for your old job. MS can always shell out the money if they want you to stay / come back.

Don’t feel bad. You are replaceable to them.

You don't have to burn bridges. Give them 2 weeks notice (more if you can/want to), spend time transitioning your work, and go to greener pastures.

Is wearing a luxury piece as an associate acceptable? My family essentially passed down a lot of assets/investments to me after graduating university so I essentially have an 8 figure net worth as a associate auditor 1 at a big 4. I’m looking at getting something like a Urwerk/RM, or a Patel 5711 Nautilus, but I’m very afraid it would look bad for me at work. Any advice is appreciated.
