My 401k fully vests and tuition reimbursement period happens June 2019 (I'll lose $15k if I leave before then).

Current salary = $66k (corporate finance)
I believe my market value = $80k

My previous manager/friend told me that my company is matching offers. Do I run and grab one now or wait until June to do so?

I've heard of companies offering bonuses to cover the tuition portion...?🤷🏼‍♂️

    I recommend trying to line up another job right around June 2019. Soon as you best jump ship to send the company a message. They should be paying you more now, before you show them a better offer from another company.

      Would you recommend staying working in defense, or try another industry?

      I currently have 2 years XP at a tiny financial advising firm (operations), and will be 3 years in defense come June.

      Leave defense if you want to maximize TC
