All things considered, the work is actually pretty easy for the paycheck. Let's face it, most of us get paid in large part just to put up with stupid bullshit. My demeanor is such that bullshit naturally just kinda slides right off me. So I work just hard enough to get by and don't really let stuff get to me too much. Consulting is a pretty great fit for that.

4 yoe, in a weird spot where I’m past the entry level / slightly experienced roles in industry and not qualified for manager level positions. Focusing on getting additional technical certs and positioning myself for projects that fit my career goals vs just doing the ones with high visibility.

I am an undergrad that got a job offer at a startup. The role is a corporate ops role, and they are offering $70k + $7.5k in equity in NYC. I really like the team, but I feel the salary is a bit low and it is fully remote, which I am worried about right out of college. I am more focused on the learning experience and skills growth.l, but could use some advice if this is a good offer.

Got an offer from Revolut for a Business Development Manager role and wondering if it’s worth making the jump. 2.5 YOE (not all in consulting) and currently an Analyst at ACN.

They gave me 130k base + 6k sign on + 10% bonus. But not sure about Revolut stacks up in the marketplace. Is it worth jumping?
