Just got my exit offer, approx. 30% increase in TC to work for a pre-IPO tech company with better WLB and growth opportunity. At D, I feel overworked and underpaid / underleveles. But I am sad to leave my team and will weirdly miss this place. Stockholm syndrome?

Leave. You can always come back!

You are overworked and underpaid - that’s the model dude; it’s why partners make a mil a year. But, it’s also why you’re qualified to be back in the market after only a couple years and demand the best jobs. That’s the value prop of consulting - you grind, but you move up / out much more quickly that you would if you started in industry.

Congratulations🎉

Congratulations OP! I’d be in the same boat soon, just waiting on the offer. Would love to chat about a few things. Ok to DM?

Sure thing!

Congrats. If you’ve been at D for a while, it’s not an abnormal feeling- the reason I’ve stayed at my firm for so long is for the people even though the institution drives me crazy. Good luck with your next move.

The place will not miss you and it will forget you in a couple of months, unfortunately. Go do you my friend.

Where are you going??

Pretty confident. A couple of ex-Deloitte people there have said as much, and also there's generally going to be less blocking and tackling. Also, right now my client (state and local) is super demanding. Lots of overnight and weekend turnarounds. So hard to imagine anything could have more hours.

Graduation goggles! Totally normal to me

Go out confidently. If you don’t like, you can always find another job. Moving to a new job will expose you to new thinking. It is common to feel some sadness and anxiety … it is business, keep moving…. Best of luck.

Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
