Currently live in Boston and considering doing a bio-related PhD in the UK, but my main concern is how that looks in terms of getting a job back in the US (preferably east coast if that matters). Does anyone have any experience with this and how companies view international PhDs? I’m a dual citizen too.

PhDs in the UK pay <£20 K a year and unless it's from Oxbridge or Imperial it likely won't be worth it (rest of Russell group unis won't be target hire for firms, or have the connections with industry). Cool experience living abroad I guess.

Disclaimer: Total Finance Noob.
I just recently got a job, which to me, is amazing. 120k salary, no real expenses other than living costs (rent and food). What is a good way to set myself up for success? My company matches my 401k contribution. Not sure about Roth or traditional. Trying to save up as much as I can because I am a little late to the game, late 20s. Any advice to someone trying to learn and catch up?

Hi Fellow LS Fish,

I’m looking to transition to industry but I see a lot of SM positions require 5+ years of experience. I’m guessing that’s not a hard line since I’ve heard that 5+ years of consulting experience could land an AD position but wanted to confirm with a random internet post :D. I have 1.5 YoE with a PhD…is that realistic for SM, and do biotechs / pharma care a lot about YoE?

Thanks!
