Knowing there are chances of promoting to consultant level down de road ( december 2023) but it is not guaranteed due to market uncertainty, would you take another offer that could get you near consultant salary in industry as a sr strategy analyst in a PortCo?

Only leave if you’re getting 30% more


Agreed. Otherwise, wait until promos are announced. If you’re passed over, find another firm that’ll give you the title and pay bump.

If you are promoted, take the new salary and leverage it for an additional 20ish percent on top of your new base.


I'd wait. Also consider the impact on your earnings over time. If you go to industry, your pay growth curve will flatten. If you stay in consulting, your pay keeps going up quickly, and you'll be MUCH better off when you're a manager 5 years from now. Plus, your exits get better the higher you get in consulting.


Great thanks!

February I have been on my job 28 years. The owners up and sold the business without a notice. I am salary and have always received my salary on vacation week plus vacation pay. New owners said that’s the stupidest thing they ever heard and it will no longer be received. I’m exhausted giving a job this many years and feeling I now have to start all over. Does anyone have any advice how should I handle this. At this point I think it’s time to find another job but fear of not making as much money.

Anyone else have colleagues who ask for things and give no sense of timing? As in “here are the other side’s edits to Agreement X.

Seriously since we started WFH I have faced lots of distractions from him and I got tired of repeating myself that I’m working & I need to focus. We do not have any kid but in that sense I think I could have make a kid understand to not keep nudging me when I’m working😓

Have been a L5 PgM at Amazon for one-year and thinking about opportunities to boomerang back at a higher level later on.

Anyone gone back to consulting, or is it better to go to another FAANG before boomerang? I don’t think going to industry at this point makes sense.

Concern on going to another FAANG is getting de-leveled/starting over. L5 is nebulous middle management, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.
