Need advice! Current: Mid-size firm as an A, expecting promotion to SA in July. 71K salary and not sure how much the raise with promotion will be (10-15%?) I like my firms culture, have great opportunities, and a great support network. Was recruited by Deloitte for a Consultant position in the same service line for 107K. So much more money but I know the culture at Deloitte isn’t great. Money/reputation > culture/balance??

My experience at Deloitte has been great - the culture is why I've stayed for 15 years. Sounds like a great bump too.

I worked at D for 2 years as a Consultant in their Consulting Practice across multiple industry verticals. In my opinion, you are correct about the culture. For me it was toxic and similar to a fraternity cult. If you are one of their people identified as a "golden boy" then you will be fine and a MD in the future. For the other 95%, there is a reason they are offering you the $107. It's not for free...

Yep, it’s highly unlikely you’ll see 71k to 100k on a promo of your firm follows anywhere close to average raises. I’ve seen anything from 10-25% in promos typically, so best case you will end up around 88k if you stay. If you really enjoy your firm that much, it may be worth bringing up that you were given an offer but you don’t want to leave, to see if they will match. That being said you usually can only get away with that once before you become too much trouble or too much of a flight risk. Also, given deloitte’s size, culture really depends on the part of the firm you are in. Given that you are earlier in your career, that kind of salary bump can make a big difference in your salary trajectory, so I would consider taking it unless the opportunities and balance are so good for you and important for you that it doesn’t make sense to leave.
