Received an offer 5k less than my current comp. I’m at a point where I really want to move and the new position seems interesting and something I look forward to doing.

I’m going to try to see if they can atleast match my comp as well.

One year in consulting and I'm pretty sure that the travel isn't for me. Should I try to switch to finance or stick it out and let my utilization/chargeability decline until I get a local role?
