Consulting

Anyone move to another country within firm for fun / life experience expecting to stay 2-5 years? How does pay work since US firms pay highest? Coming back to US would salary / level be stunted?

You take about a 30-40% pay cut easily. Higher level that maybe 50-60%. Do it for the experience but if you value the lifestyle (afforded by what you are getting paid) you are currently leading much more than doing the move. Don't.

I've been looking into it as my SO lives overseas but it's definitely a significant pay cut (SC pays worse than BTA, M pays about C salary) so I'm also worried that when I come back I'll get lower offers based on the lower salary overseas. Ideally I'll be able to figure out some kind of secondment that keeps me employed by the US firm (yes, I know D will still usually adjust your salary to the local market rate for a secondment)

I imagine your salary would adjust back. As long as you know what your mkt value is.

@OP sorry just noticed your reply. My numbers are based on actual offers I got... last year another Big 4 firm offered me a SC position at a 50% pay cut from my C1 salary, and now 5 years in I was looking at an M position that was paying roughly my C2 salary (but they said they wouldn't be able to bring me in at M)

@dd1 haha I was looking at hk too. I don't know how it is there but in China people always report salary and stuff post tax. If that's the case with the hk Glassdoor salaries then it's only one level step down, not two, which could be doable

@dd1 do you think salary would adjust back? Go as an SC, work 2-3 years come back to US as M; coming back would still be at US M pay band

When should comp become #1 priority when thinking of switching companies? I've always switched companies based on: type of work > wlb > comp. Now I am starting to think I'm underpaid given my background: 9 YOE all in tech. I'm at 130k MCOL, some of my peers are currently between 180-220k 😑
