What’s the appropriate salary range for an Associate Director, Digital Strategy role for pharma clients, based on the east coast? My thoughts are $130-150k but want to make sure this is realistic.

I’m a McK associate of ~2 year tenure, with a PhD in a life science, soon to exit for big pharma as an associate director. For those of you already in industry (pharma or not), what would you say is the most important learning you wish you knew when you first started in industry? What advice would you give to a new colleague that will join your team? Thank you!

It’s potentially a partnership track & I was told that it could be “worthwhile for me to take a risk” and go into private. I wanted to gauge what those in private practice thought. It’s a small firm. Would the switch be worth it overall?
