My SO moved dept at work; industry. His boss is begging me to leave consulting & backfill his role. Is it weird to worry about his full transparency to my work life? I’m a diff person in the office.

You need to assess it very objectively - would you consider the same role at a competitor? Does this present career growth? How’s the culture of that team? I think that backfilling for your SO will always add an element of drama “he used to do this” and by default, compare you to him. Also, why add the travel burden on yourself if you don’t need to?

How does his boss know you’ll be a good backfill? Have you worked together directly or is the boss getting info from your SO?

We wouldn’t cross paths much. - Huge company, campus, no direct dept interaction. It is a great, chill job (We both work in my system & process) I don’t ‘mind’ traveling but I know it gets to him. He is legit friends with old, and new, boss outside of work. It has potential to be the best or worst situation. SO built what this role is maintaining, so immediate support and shouldn’t take long to master the learning curve.

Someone in my group just jumped from Accenture as a senior analyst to Deloitte as a SC. I’m currently a C at Accenture but really tempted to make the jump and reach for SC or M. I know I’ll get paid more and do the same shit. Currently at 120k and I spoke to a SC at Deloitte that has the same position and they make 160k. I like the people here and the culture here though. But at the same time I want my next move to be out of consulting. Still worth it to make the move?
