Consulting

Would it be a bad decision to jump ship 5 months prior to the Consultant > Senior Consultant promotion? Looking for long term view. Potential ~35% comp bump going to industry, but not a ‘senior’ title

Don't get caught up on the title. I just finished recruiting and had offers at manager, sm, and director. Comp and responsibilities were very similar across all titles. Each company has their own approach to titles which shouldn't impact your decision

What are your reasons for leaving now instead of waiting until EOY? Are there any bonuses you would forgo by leaving now? Is there a position open now that you really want? Also, I don't think a week at SC will change your negotiations much. Probably need to be in the role at least 3 months.

There’s an open industry position that I’m pursuing. It wouldn’t involve travel and work life balance seems to be a lot better. I would likely forgo a large bonus loss in late August/September, however my the base salary in this role would be ~15% higher than my upcoming new total comp (Aug/Sept bonus + new level salary), and ~35%+ higher than my estimated upcoming base salary. Trying to figure out if I would be making the right decision, but just worried that another opportunity like this wouldn’t come up for a long time.

I would jump. No question about it. If you go to industry you can always come back if you change your mind

Married 🐠, I have a question. How often do you have sex with your husband? My husband wants to have sex daily, I was keeping it to every other day but with COVID it’s been too hard and I’ve struggled in general. We now have sex 2x a week. He pouts, gives me silent treatment and otherwise makes me feel awful each time I reject him. He offers something sweet and when I say ok but I’m not sleeping with you, he takes the offer off the table. (Continued)
