I've worked at 3 different firms in 4 years. Went from $75k to $140k by hopping. There's no loyalty in this game.

I’m starting to realize this. Stayed at a firm for four years with a base of 80k. Now I’m taking a job for 140k. Wish I would have let go of “loyalty” earlier in the game

If you are a PAL/PAD you will definitely be client -facing and responsible for helping to both sell and deliver work.

I agree with the post above.

Also, if you are talking about Austin they already have a decent number of folks in TE and a Managing Director on board (I believe) so you may be able to come in as a "Leader" from the start - but if you are talking about Charlotte, Columbus, Miami, Nashville, etc. then you are basically starting from scratch and would certainly be doing heavy BD and likely expected to be chargeable as well.
