Talked to a big 4 recruiter for lateral move and seems like Im currently making more than what they can offer me even though they really like my resume. I guess I should just stick with my job?

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.

Big 4 Partners, what is your take on mental health breaks? If an employee in your team takes a mental health leave would they be looked at unfavourably/ would someone’s candidature be shelved if they say they’re returning from a mental health break and looking for a job at your firm?

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations.
