Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though.

Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.
