When you’ve been at a company for less than a year after undergrad, when’s the absolute breaking point to start looking for new jobs? Only thing stopping me is the sign on bonus claw back.

For context I am not a fan of the consulting lifestyle, the job changes with every project, demanding clients/senior level employees, and travel is exhausting.

Breaking point is an individual decision, could be a month or a full year. Up to you whether paying the claw back is worth it.

I’d start looking for roles and getting offers now before worrying about a few thousand dollars. The new sign on should help you cover or, if you’re lucky, you may be able to negotiate with your new employer to help pay it off.

Great advice all, thanks!

With regards to repaying a bonus, you can always attempt to negotiate that with your new employer.

I had to repay a bonus when I left and was up front with the recruiter that it was holding me back, and asked if there was any way to get that in the form of a sign-on bonus to help me make the move now.

This sounds like a Deloitter….anyhow, never hurts to look and you can always negotiate for bonus to cover whatever you have to pay back.

Had some credit card charge offs come up from U4 review and I didn’t payoff. Not proud of it from when I was younger but they’re off my report since it’s past 7 yrs but still within the 10 yr U4 review period. Will this impact employment?
