Started my career after graduating in May & just landed a mid-level pm role, $10k salary increase. Don’t want to burn any bridges where I currently am, and I’m conflicted because a few other colleagues have left since May. Though, I don’t want that to be the only reason I stay. Also, I think this next opportunity could help me leverage moving abroad in the future (goal of mine). Would be switching categories from healthcare to auto? Any advice? How did you know you were ready to move on?

Here’s what you learn over time: you have to make the decision that makes sense for you. Whether it’s for money or mobility or industry or mental health or balance or all of the above. Your company will go on without you. Leaving on good terms should keep the door open should you ever want to return. Congrats on getting hired twice in a pandemic. You’re doing awesome.

People move all the time. Give them your two weeks notice, ensure you wrap up projects and leave on boarding docs for the next person and thank your team for everything! They’ll be okay

That loyalty you feel goes away after your first layoff. They'll be fine, congratulations on the promotion.

The connection you need isn’t to the agency itself but to the people you work with. In 99% of situations, they’ll react like normal people—happy for you and glad that they now have a connection they can reach out to at your new agency when it’s time for them to increase their own salary

Agree with all of the above. Staying at a job 10 months isn’t alarming at all.

No one cares if a low level PM leaves. Agencies are a revolving door. Generally, burning bridges is more about not being a jerk than switching jobs.

100% do what’s best for YOU. I’ve been been in this industry for many years and have tons of respect for folks who move on, level up and do what’s best for them. It’s not burning bridges, and if it’s seen that way then that place sucks. Just be a good human and you can’t go wrong. Best of luck.

Congrats! As everyone said, do what’s best for your career and take it! Just give them proper notice, offer to help and keep in touch... that’s all you can do. Everyone expects you to move on, it’s just a job. Btw as a producer too who has moved abroad, yes it’s absolutely the dream 💭 Best of luck!

I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?

I’m the person who tells people it’s okay to open up at work about mental health issues, and that it’s okay to talk about it.

I just don’t want others to not have anyone to talk to… but maybe it’s really me who doesn’t have anyone to talk to…
