Hi Fishes, I have an interview next week for a Client Partnerships Manager role at a large entertainment company. The focus would be a client partner for Tech, QSR & Finance clients.

Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE? My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k. For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc. Thanks!

Advice appreciated: I am currently interviewing for a job that I really want which is expected to take three more weeks. But the internal transfer that I requested is seeing traction and somehow moving faster than I thought. (Had a chat with the partner and he directly contacted HR to initiate the process. Did not expect things to move this quickly) Should I keep pursuing both in case something doesn’t work out? Or should I withdraw from one or put a hold on transfer? Don’t want to burn bridges

Hey fish, I’m coming up on a year post PhD and this job has drained a lot out of me. There’s not a lot I enjoy: overpromising partners, annoying clients, endless iterations (from either client or partner), poorly scoped KOL interviews, long hours… The only reason I haven’t quit is the US healthcare system’s reliance on employer provided insurance. Where can I go with ~1YOE post PhD? It feels like nearly every job requires a lot more and I just don’t have it in me to push through another 1-2y…

I had a really good interview with three partners last week and was told another partner would be following up for a second. Sent thank you emails that night.

Unbeknownst to me, fourth partner emailed night of first interview. I’ve sent emails and left a voicemail today but haven’t heard back. Am I screwed?!

It’s been about two weeks since a sr partner at Kearney said he passed my resume to the recruiting team asking to get me started in the interview process for a DT associate in NA region, but I’ve not heard anything yet. Should I give it a few more days before reaching back out, few more weeks, or even sooner than those two options?
