Never move for money. Make a move for opportunity, career strategy, culture, or promotion potential. The money is always a short term win but a great career is priceless.

Depends why you want to switch. If it’s about money, you obviously don’t do it. If it’s for other reasons, need to see if they outweigh taking a pay hit - nobody can determine that for you

like

If you need to switch because of your reputation at your current firm, consider it. If you have good relationships and will be starting the political capital process over, don’t do it. A little salary bump in either direction won’t matter in the long run

Yes OP! Stick around. Not worth it.

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.

I get more money can buy more homes cars yachts and designer clothes but once someone is above 30-50M, is a billionaire/multi billionaire really living that much better? If seeking power, sure but I couldn’t care less as long as I have power over my life. In that case what would life at a billion get me that it couldn’t at 30-50M. Note I am nowhere near either amount lol but I have friends in the 30-50M envying those with billions and really don’t get what they’re lacking
