Which would you take: - stay at current industry FS F100 firm. Incredible support from leadership, super great WLB (30 hrs a week), potential promo TC: $115k - offer from top industry Tech firm (think Microsoft/Salesforce/FAANG). Doing the same work, but likely more hours, and unknown leadership support. TC: $180k Obviously the jump in TC is huge, but I really value WLB. Any insight would be super helpful! 28M, 5.5 YOE, MCOL (DFW/ATL/PHO)

I'd take the money. 🤷🏽. That's a significant amount .

2nd the counter. A transparent conversation: I love it here, but the TC gap is too big to ignore. I really see myself continuing to grow with this company and appreciate the support and mentorship you've provided over the last years. What can we do to close this gap, so I can stay? (expect them to meet in the middle, and then don't expect to be able to ask for another counter for 3-4 years)

You’d be surprised at getting counters. I thought I wouldn’t get one (2 YOE, not an SME) but was offered a 20% increase to stay (almost FAANG offer) I ultimately left for the FAANG because of long term opportunities. FS didn’t feel like a growing org, and upward trajectory and TC would be slow.

Id only feel comfortable staying at the F100 if I saw a clear, realistic path to a drastic increase in comp. A role in a top tech firm is going to open up a lot of doors. The variable here is that it’s hard to say how many of those doors are already open to you with that F100 roll.

Do you have a wife, kids, hobbies, or other things that the extra time could be allocated to that will bring you happiness and balance? If not then take the TC and stronger career path in tech. It might be a wash in terms of pay per hour, but if the free time isn't bringing you any value then you might as well monetize it and work more.

Thanks! The offer is actually on the Microsoft Azure and AI team. I know you're in a different part of the org, but would you have any insight on their WLB? I think anything consistently over 50 is too much for me.
