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!

That is an incredible salary for the UK.

This sounds like an excellent offer for the UK. However given your stated goal is comp maximisation, you're almost certainly going to earn more in the US.

UK comp is always less than US for the same role in the same company. I know this first hand for Google, BCG, Amazon, Facebook, McKinsey, etc.

From what I’ve heard, directors are at 120-180 base

That is really good for Director

What firm is paying directors this?!?

Sounds more like Associate partner salary to me

If optimising for Comp - stay in the states

Hi, would love some advice! I’ve been at my company ~1 yr and feeling like I need a change due to various reasons.

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
