Stay on my current project through July 31st for the best chance at my consultant promotion, or take my April roll off date for an LLP project out of AFS, and risk delaying the promo...

Misread your post originally, but transferring out of AFS is its own promotion. Trust me

Best chance is overrated. Do what you gotta do while you are on the project. You got this.

They have these 2 yr promo cycle to trap you like a hamster, you should never prioritize "best chance" over better experiences. Your promo rec would've been in by April anyway.

Best chance for promotion doesn't mean much. There's lots of variables. And depending on if you want your long term career to be working in LLP industries, take the chance out of AFS

AFS isn't shitty. It comes down to personal preference. Some people like the slower paced projects with not as much travel in AFS. So it's a choice

Work life balance tends to be much better in AFS. It depends what type of work you like to do too and the client. The federal business is also growing, so there is a lot of opportunity for promotion.

F' AFS. It's a looking proposition. Do the job that gets you promoted so you have more flexibility to do what you want later.

Wait AFS is that shitty?

Actually AFS promos tend to be faster I think, but I've never heard of anyone doing anything interesting for AFS

M7 infrastructure in Texas. I'm currently paid near bottom of scale in my group. I'm not upset and love my job and my peers. I have an offer for 40% raise to industry job. I prefer my current work though, both from daily work and career path. But 40% raise is a big deal. At what point is the pay raise more important than daily work joy. I'm stressing over this decision. I don't really want to leave.

Wanted to get some thoughts. My wife works in private accounting and just got promoted to manager. We prepared for her compensation negotiation for about a week. She goes in and they low ball her with only a 4k raise. She counters with her value to the firm and the office managing partner literally laughs in her face. You guys think she should just bail? I am embarrassed that this is how they treat their employees.
