How much less? How much more in demand? What will you learn? How will you grow? How unhappy are you? What else are benefits for your life and career? I tend to recommend my clients away from these moves BUT sometimes it is an awesome options. The details really matter.

And I see my original question "how much less" wasn't clear. I meant the full package of benefits, time, salary + bonus, etc

If you can afford the cut, sure, but have a backup plan. I declined proceeding with a start up because it was so volatile. Anyone could lose their job any day (which happened a few months after my interviews - most leadership and management were let go). Have an emergency fund just in case you need to look for a new job later. The risk is with a start up, you can move up very quickly and may enjoy the excitement because you have a lot of impact.

Interviewed for Deloitte S&A Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus.

How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but need time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.

Lately I’ve been trying to quit consulting and take up a less intense job for the period while my kids are very young so I don’t miss out on their early years.

But I have a hard time converting any of my applications to such roles. I think my resume doesn’t make it past hr. And I have a hard time locating the hiring manager. Any tips?

11,000 new covid cases today - most since January. Am I missing something? What ya’ll doin these days? I found the headline puzzling since the city technically could be a herd immunity scenario (state is at 69% vax but city is higher) and many unvaxxed already had covid. Do we think it’s mass events like concerts or back to the office or just the consequences of thanksgiving? Curious to hear your theories, not a dissertation on politics
