It’s a reasonable offer. If you’re excited about the company and it’s potential, maybe even a great offer.

MCOL = tier 2 cities like Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia or more like Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte?

EY2 when it’s not freezing cold 🥶

Those cities seem pretty different. You make plenty. I'd focus on making sure that's somewhere you'd want to live.

What industry is this company in?

Yes 👍🏻

Can someone explain the difference between FB’s Partner Solutions Manager and the Strategic Partner Manager? From an initial recruiter call, it seems the SPM provides the consultative product recs while the PSM onboards the client onto that product and tracks performance to provide actionable recs as needed. Anyone know career growth and salary for these two? I don’t want a sales heavy/only lateral growth role like their client solutions manager roles so these seem like good compromises?
