Take it!

You’re moving into a sales role that would have some sort of quota right? Also it looks like you’re moving across the country is it closer or further away from family? Money is nice, really nice and solves a lot of problems but what are you giving up to have that nice bump and what other risks are associated with the move? Personally I would probably go (lol). I like money and it affords you nice things like trips to see your family.

like

Consider your family’s current state, your age and where you may want to be in 2,3,5 yrs from a career and life standpoint. Take some time to write those things down to elevate whether this is the right move. Also you may be able to get a bump with your current company given you have an offer in hand. (Tread lightly with that though). 75% increase is a lot and could really set you up but it could also potentially price you out of moves in the future. Good luck, also happy to chat more if you want.

I'd leave.

Is this really a question??? Go!

Don’t go, you know jack shit. Stay and learn. Leave after a year or 2

What do we honestly learn in consulting that can't be learned elsewhere
