40% raise is great! I’d make the move if you’re also interested in the work and team!

If consulting isn’t where you plan to be long term, then who cares? Make the jump, take the money, figure out what comes next and spend several years in that job.

40% is huge - who cares about short tenure at your existing. I’d take the move and just keep an eye out for future opps that are more aligned to your interests outside of consulting

40% raise seems awesome. I would just compare the exit opportunities at current firm vs there and how that may impact long-term life earnings. It may not be worth it if you get pigeon-holed and hit a pay wall in that area. Then again you’d probably be able to boomerang back

Jumping around a is a great way to increase your salary but at a certain point all the jumping around gets you dropped from more senior roles

Also Arthur little is a step down on prestige....but a 40% raise is well worth it

Our CSM department is going through a major restructure right now. There has been a huge amount of turn over since the beginning of the year. Our managers have not given us any insight to what the new restructure will look like, they have also pushed out our annual raise conversations until the end of April. A lot of CSMs are leaving the company and it has me thinking maybe I should entertain other opportunities elsewhere as well.
