That's the scam HR and recruiting for poor companies wants you to believe. In reality, those actually good moonshot opportunities are not pay decreases either.

A moonshot that can propel your career looks something like: 140k-200k base + .2% - 3% equity as a non-founding early employee in a pre-Series B, maybe C company as the lead of a function. Sure your cash comp may go down, but your TC is still an increase given the significant equity

TC and the learning opportunity for a company are highly, positively correlated. Good teammates don't work for cheap

A more holistic approach for job opportunity evaluation with WLB, fit with colleagues, learning, living where you want to etc. makes sense to me.

But in case of learning vs. earning, I feel this also depends on your career stage. At some age a fun job with max earnings and no learnings is certainly fine

No thank you. Don’t drink this kool aid! A good job will help develop your skills AND pay well.

Nah. I'm good.

When I left consulting, I did turn down more lucrative roles in pursuit of WLB, but I accepted ~$250K instead of ~$300K, but I work half the hours.

You can learn anywhere. If you're not learning, it's probably because you're not reaching. And that's fine. Work isn't everything. It's less than most things.

This is dumb. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

In a capitalist society, the only way to maximize your worth is by playing in the rat race.

So you can FIRE at 40 or 50.
