Dealing with the same decision. Currently I’m 100% WFM for the foreseeable future in a software dev role at a bank. I have an offer on the table to go with a big defense contractor for $40k more but hybrid. 2 days a week in office. “In office” means a 3 hour commute one way. Not sure what to do.

You like your project / team. You like your firm You are unsure about the work you are doing. You don’t want to be in consulting forever. Is it worth going to a boutique for a few years to gain more experience in a different area before exiting to industry, given it’s a 20%+ pay increase from current salary? Given I am 1-2 years from manager level.

Apologies for the dumb question but what exactly does partner mean in today’s world? In olden times it would have meant you were a partial owner right? Does it still? Or does it just mean extra highly paid employee with a lot of leadership responsibilities? We don’t use the term at Accenture of course since we’re public, but I’m curious what it really means at b4 or MBB, beyond just extra high paychecks? Are there actual partner benefits, like owning private shares of the company?
