It’s so hard seeing so many people make so much more money by switching to new firms. I’m making a strategic move that will probably command more comp in 3-5 years than I would have made if I hadn’t made the jump but my salary bump (25%) isn’t nearly what everyone else is getting right now because I’m basically starting over in a new area. I have serious FOMO. I *think* I did the right thing but now I’m all caught up in comparing myself! Could use some words of encouragement or advice, y’all…
