Wait for promotion in October or take July bonus and leave? I'm so burnt out. It would be nice to get the title but I don't know if I can last that long, and not possible to take leave in between.

So you have an offer pending somewhere else?

I’m considering just leaving before the bonus payout. Not worth it to miss a good ship imo

Leave and just say were “acting” manager or whatever during interviews

Just tell the new firm you are foregoing a bonus and raise and jump ship.

I don't have an offer elsewhere. Thought I'd take a break for a month. Would I still be able to say acting M and say I took a sabbatical or something?

Wait for the promotion and then take your leave. I did that. Worked my ass off, got the promotion and then took 4 months off. Came back refreshed and with a 30% pay bump. Also figure out if you want to quit altogether after you get the promo. But stick it thru for now. Gives you more leverage as you consider your next moves

Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting.

Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary.

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid).

Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
