^ this. It’s impossible to say without knowing more, but generally 120k in Dallas is a good salary

For level 9? That is good.

How much of a pay cut are you taking? More than 15% and you might start noticing a difference in how much you can afford.

Yes, no income tax but it makes up for it in property taxes. I survive single income household on 78,500 plus bonus in Houston which is slightly cheaper.

Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.

What are the tax implications of a retention bonus? I was given a bonus that I would receive up front but would need to pay it back if I leave before a few years. I assume I would have to pay back the pre-tax amount but I only receive a lower post-tax amount. Would I be made whole on the tax difference when I file my taxes if I had to pay it back?

I know people say to not chase money but I’ve been in the industry for about 5 years (all in NYC at big old agencies) and I’ve never made anything of note. A senior position recently came up at another large agency that I don’t think will lead to great work… but it comes with a pay raise from 85 to 140. I’m in my late 30s and I’m tired of feeling like I’m not getting ahead financially. But sometimes I feel like a failure for not making a lot of cool work like my classmates from ad school.
