Thanks McK 1. I’m excited about it!

Do you think you’ll be happier in a year? 5? Good/ bad offers are often based on personal preference

Good perspective. I think yes. Have been long distance with my partner for 3 years, then a year of constant travel. Thought I’d make it to PL2 before heading out, but this oppy found me.

Great offer. Follow your heart. Sounds like your head is trying to convince you otherwise!

Yes! I genuinely like my job and have a good path, but this is exciting! Thanks for the encouragement.

Would you have to repay signing bonus? Any constraints there? Might want to negotiate this into your comp package, if so. Sounds like a great offer. Congrats and good luck.

Thank you!! I negotiated them to repay a relocation bonus, sign on is cleared thankfully.

This is good offer for tier 2 city. If you are not interested in NE or WC not sure you will do that much better leaving as PL. For example, in Dallas JPM will hire you as VP in strategy for 230k if you are PL or 180-200k as Sr Asso if you are a C (see thread in this bowl talking about JPM strategy). So your 220k if it is like AT&T Dallas would be comparable to the VP exit.

Makes sense. In northeast, but relatively low COL city (similar to dallas) with very few consumer tech companies. About half the COL of NYC so this seems about right!

Just do it 😉

Were you in marketing or media/tech pre-MBA or did you just market case experience/general consulting toolkit?

Lots of marketing segmentation and consumer strategy work pre MBA. Did some marketing strategy work at MBB but leaned heavily on past experience and the times I’ve been a de facto manager for new college hires
