Big 4 M suuuuuuucks

Why?

Do you like traveling?

Offer 1 based on what you provided

Depends on how old you are/where your priorities are (children, significant other, being home, being by your parents, money, work life balance). Money will always return. Time will not.

For context, I’m married with children. I could go either way with travel as I’ve always made it work in the past.

Family always comes first, and it’s more so thinking about what travel looks like post pandemic and does it become a bigger hindrance which could indirectly impact family outcomes.

I just saw the edit. Offer 2.

Sounds like consulting vs industry? How often are full bonuses paid out in industry?

In NYC? Meh

like

Offer 2

Total comp is pretty similar tbh (granted you make the max on bonus, it would behoove you to figure out what the average bonus trended for the last few years) The question is do you want to travel, and are the roles different at all

Offer 2

Big 4 sounds like it would be solid unless the industry offer is somewhere you actually want to be long term.

Offer 1

How old are you?

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
