Cannot wait until he gets me an interview and the ceo looks at my resume. “Wtf is this?”

Or maybe the CEO will say, Brilliant, we could use a young go getter like this in that role.

Then the CEO will hand you the journal entry at the end of the period to record revenue and an intangible asset "to properly reflect the effect of his next big idea" and you'll book it because you have no idea what you're doing. 🤣

Looking for advice. I’m a sr. associate in cyber at a Big 4 on track for a promo to manager in a year. My old employer reached out to me about coming back as an Assoc. Dir., BISO. Concern is that this BISO role would not have bonuses (nonprofit), so I’d potentially be “throwing away” $ by leaving consulting now. Would opps later on be better having had an associate director role on my résumé before I’m 30? Should I stick it out in consulting? The job is a dream, but short term $ is def less.
