I have been offered 44% salary rise and promotion to manager role in a tech company (nothing really fancy not a big name).
I really enjoy working in consultancy so I wonder if it really makes sense to leave just for money and manager tag on my LinkedIn profile.
I cannot expect more than 10-15% salary increase at my current role, yet once I am promoted hopefully next year I would get better money then current exit offer. Of course there's a risk they will not promote me next year and I'll need to wait 2 years for a promotion.
All in all I believe it does not make sense from the strategic point of view to leave for something that I am not really excited about just to temporarily better off on my pay slip, however some say that you should be opportunistic and leave once another company wants to pay more for your skills, so you maximize your earning potential. Sometimes I see Liniedin profiles who change jobs every 2-3 years and they seem to be promoted faster then ones who decide to stay in one company for 10+ years, so seems that strategy also works well for some people.
What's your opinion on leaving consulting for 44% salary increase while not being really excited about the new job anyway?
