Getting an offer at a HF but love my PE firm
Looking for some advice. I work at a PE firm and absolutely love it. The culture is awesome. My manager is incredible, my skip level is amazing, and her manager is a huge supporter of mine. I get unprecedented access to leadership and really feel like a valued member of the firm. But a major HF is recruiting me, and I’m about to get an offer that will likely be a 30-40% bump. It’s one of the best funds in the industry, but I have a feeling I won’t feel the same way I do about my current firm. On the other hand, if I leave that money on the table, I always know the market values my skills higher than what I make.
Is there any world where I can stay at my current firm and use the offer to get them to counter? Or am I shooting myself in the foot if I tell them about the offer?
