Difference in 50 and 80% travel is huge for quality of life. Go for the 50 if it’s a good firm with a good career trajectory doing something you like. I would think you could find a corporate job in that low 100s pay range though. With limited travel (although limited trajectory). If you are cool with low/mid 100s for the medium term salary then I might look for a corporate/no travel gig. If you want to get into the 200s in the next few years, stay in consulting.

Ya, definitely looking to break into the 200’s before exiting. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Also just a heads up 50% travel can easily turn to 80. Just be cautious I got burned with the oh it’s 1 week a month and then landed a m-t travel and was told you knew travel was part of the job

How’d you get 40-50% travel? Nice

I would make sure it's guaranteed and that you can make it happen and then take it. if it's good for you and you feel like it's fair pay, then it's perfect for you!!! congratulations
