With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).

Currently making $135k base (expected to get $10-15k bonus end of year) Received an offer at a boutique firm for $120k + $15k bonus Y1 with potential to jump to TC of $160k+ in Y2. This company has much better WLB and more interesting work, but feels dumb to not take advantage of other firms potentially offering a huge salary jump for switching right now. Do I keep looking?

Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!
