Leaving MBB after 1 year? I’d say stick it out longer and get more experience unless you hate it. More years at MBB is more ability to negotiate later.

More context: City/Post/Level?

Seems very less for Bay Area.

What’s the equity valued at? Need more info

Valuation of that equity? May be able to demand slightly higher cash comp, but wouldn’t expect much more given its series A.

For a comparison point, I got an offer for 150k and 0.01% at a series c unicorn with 2 YOE

Hi 🐠! Class of 2017 here and found out yesterday that I’m being held back a year (as a 3rd year instead of 4th). I feel totally blindsided / actually cried on the Zoom. I’ve reached out to partner-mentor in other groups and they explained that this isn’t a demotion but an opportunity to have more time to acquire mid-level skills before being thrust into that role & failing. I GET that but I feel this is something that should have been messaged BEFORE the review. Such an erosion of trust. Advice?
