My husband is in IB so drop off and pick ups will be hard for him. First former manager came in with the opp and initially I said no bc of the paycut. It took me a month to come around bc I realized it’ll be better hours, new area of learning, better culture and overall great boss. As we’re finalizing things, second former boss came around with the new opportunity. Don’t get me wrong I’m extremely grateful but I can’t get pass the paycut so it was hard to get excited even though everything (company culture/leaderships style and values) else aligns. I’m not sure what role to take .. the only thing I’m sure of is I need to leave current job. Any advice ?

Seems like a question around your values - 1. Are you willing to subject yourself to a toxic boss and longer hours for growth? 2. Do you want to spend more time with your child? 3. Does the extra money really make a difference? 4. Do you have plans for child care if you and your partner are too busy? My guess is that if your partner is working in IB, you can afford to take the pay cut especially if it gives you more time with your kid (and you value that). I’m not sure what your answers are to the questions above but my guess is that if you answer them honestly, you’ll know which job to take

OP if you can afford the pay cut, I’d go with the better everything team - option 1! If it’s a great place to work you will advance quickly and eventually make more. Option 1 also sounds like a great stepping stone. Can you negotiate non financial things in your overall comp? Like extra days off, a professional development budget, executive coach, travel to a conference etc?
