What TC % increase would you jump ship for, assuming you love where you work but are facing a really cool new opportunity?

Depends what my current TC is. My opinion: At lower levels, bigger % jumps in TC are misleading and may not be the wisest if there is a quicker trajectory up in my current role as I’m likely early in the workforce still. At mid-level TC, if probably consider jumping if it was >30% as a tried and true path may good but also a switch there could expand your skill set meaningfully. At high TCs, I’d consider the really cool opportunity (assuming risk is not notably high) at similar, if not, even up to a ~20% reduction in TC.

smart

I have the exact opposite view, if you’re talking about consulting. At junior levels, jump around if all you’re after is $. If you like your team / work then at least consider that grass isn’t always greener, but you’ve got other considerations.

At more senior levels (like me, now), I’m 1-3 years away from being a partner. Unless I was offered a partner role, I wouldn’t even consider it unless it was like 2-3x what I’m making now, since I expect a 4-5x increase as I move to more senior partner in the next 5-8 years. A 30% increase tomorrow that requires me to rebuild my entire network within the firm and start rebuilding my brand and start tracking towards whatever metrics I need to hit from 0 makes absolutely no sense now. The 30% increase tomorrow is pretty meaningless if it delays the path to partner by 2-3 years - I should easily make that up and come out well ahead by avoiding that delay.

25-30%?

It depends. Leaving industry to go into consulting, it only took me a 10% raise, but I knew I would be eligible for another raise in 4 months and my annual raises were going to be 8-15% instead of 2-4%. So in that year I ended up seeing a 22% increase with the raise factored in as well.

Leaving consulting to go to industry, I would need at least 30% since I would be going back to 2-4% raises and progression would be less predictable.
