Struggling with an offer I got for an industry position. The base undervalues me, raises are low, but total comp is higher than I would get this year with my raise if I stayed (although it couldn’t compete with my expected comp next year). I’ll have better WLB, which I really need for various reasons, but so scared to give up everything I know and that the hiring company was putting on a show during the interview process.

Thoughts on accepting an offer knowing the possibility that you might decline their offer during the background check process? Is this ok? I have an offer, but im only given a few days to decide, but I am interviewing for another 2 companies that are a bit slow and I might get an offer from 1 or both of them before the end of this month. The 2 slower companies are my preference over the 1 that I have an offer for. Thoughts on how to navigate this?

How soon is too soon to leave? I started my first real gig in advertising as a junior at a small agency about six months ago.

Fellow Auditors, Since we all are aware that there has been a sudden pay rise of 20-30% in recent past (6M - 12M) specially for experienced staff to Manager level due to acute shortage of resources at ground level. Hence, I sometimes wonder as to who has borne all this extra cost so far. Is it the Equity Partners or the Client 🤔 In case Partners, than I really think that even though current hot market might have boon for the most but absolutely nightmare for the Partners group.
