Anonymous first time poster looking for some advice from the RoF community.
I’m 6 years PQE at a small regional firm (most you probably wouldn’t even have heard of it but we have like 200 staff in 4 cities). The work is pretty boring but easy enough (I’m in finance doing mainly mid market corporate banking). The pay is crap but the people are quite nice and I’ve got a pretty clear runway to partner within a couple of years. PEP is about £200-250k on average most years which is a half decent take home where I live.
I’m presently courting an offer from a regional office (same city) of a much, much larger UK regional firm (not quite silver circle but pretty well though of). The work would be of a much higher quality and pay better but the partner track much longer.
I’m fortunate enough to be in a sector that’s going pretty well at the moment but there is of course the obvious spectre of a double dip recession that makes me think it may be better to stay put given I’m reasonably happy (and in a pretty strong position internally) where I am.
Any advice from Roffers who’ve been in a similar situation would be appreciated.
And before anyone says it, yes I know finance at a regional firm is pub league football but I’m too old for the City/family won’t move/can’t be arsed.
