You can not have any more serious raises and have a good life at 125k. If it's work you like, may as well.

U should take it. The problem is that a lot of ppl think your first switch is the most important thing in life. Yeah it kinda effect u big time but where u end up depends more on who u r. U will do good no matter what kind of mistakes u do in life. I honestly think place that is ready to pay this much would definitely respect u and give u some knowledge. If you dont like it you can always look for something more. Dont be afraid and just take offer.

Why not? If you dislike it after a few years, boomerang back to public. Nothing is permanent. It could be good experience.

Even if OP is walking into a shit show, so what. The salary and title differential will accelerate the career options for OP by several years. Deal with the shit show for two years and move on later to even greater things.

You won't make that much as manager. Do it.

It would take you like 5 more years at least to achieve that level of comp and more to break even at 45k more every year. There is no downside and next gig starting comp would be at least 125k or more.

I made a similar jump in salary recently for PA to industry. Glad I did. You should do it. You can always go back to PA - you really have nothing to lose!

PWC2- ad a counterpoint this amount of money could make his future less stressful, OP will potentially save enough not to worry about losing their job or being unemployed for short periods of time. Even if the OP doesn't end up staying long term, there is a benefit in career earnings even if they boomerang.

I know you're being sarcastic, but your comment wasn't way off base, could have just been worded better. I'd take an 80k job over 125k job if I was miserable at the 125k job and liked the 80k job. That said, most people don't love PA, so even if you don't like the new job, it probably isn't worse than this one, and you're making more $$.
