That normal human psychology. Think about the time when you decided to break up with you ex, that’s when you feel hesitant and see the good side of him/her. However, the thing is that you just don’t want change.

The new job is more risky but offers more upside to move up. If you want less risk then stay at Big 4.

Is it in industry or to another PA firm? Any details on your current job and new job?

Weigh the pros and cons. Consider asking for more $ if the offer isn't enticing enough.

Decline it so if I’m option #2 I can quickly tell them yes.

Best decision I made. To each their own though

Left Booz last year to work for one of the beltway bandits. Culturally this is not a fit and I'm looking to quit. While I don't plan to go back to Booz or a Big 4, I'm considering a non technical role with a tech company in the DC or Reston area, preferably in partnership, BD or sales. How bad does a gap on my resume appear to recruiters and hiring managers? Any advice is appreciated.
