Question, I was offered a new role from a firm. It'd be a pay increase, but it's in federal consulting. I want to ideally transition to commercial consulting. I don't see many opps right now. Advice?

If you want to stay in consulting for the foreseeable future then I would think hard about it. If you plan is to exit consulting into industry within the next 2-3 years then take the federal role. It doesn’t affect your exit, it’s more stable than commercial in the current climate, and you will get a higher pay.

I’m pending an offer from Visa Inc for a Senior Director role and want to know some guardrails.

This is very strange to be competitive in the tech world. Would love to hear input into pushing for both equity and sign on as part of the offer. Thanks!
