Ok.. 10% is still not bad at all

It’s another channel to apply for jobs and unfortunately one of the few tools available. A lot of the jobs are posted via automated systems and the same jobs are updated over and over. Sometimes it will look like a new posting and then when you click on it the job is either no longer available or has been on the employer website 30+ days.

Should I stay at a company I know I like culture-wise when my manager said they will try to promote me, but with no guarantee. Or should I take a job offer I was given with a nice raise, but is in consulting at Slalom. I have not worked in consulting before. There is no travel with Slalom, but the idea of being the new person all the time isn’t too appealing. Less pay and known culture, or more pay unknown job satisfaction?
