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

What firm is paying directors this?!?

Sounds more like Associate partner salary to me

If optimising for Comp - stay in the states

Sooo - I have an Acquaintance who is the head of Marketing in a tech company.

Is that a thing? I didn't know it was his req - but even if it is - he could still get me an interview no? Not sure if I'm thinking too much into this. Is this a thing?

Hi fishes.

Last week I gave interview in Mindtree and got a call from HR on Friday saying that I have cleared my managerial round and that she'll be calling me for further discussion. She then setup a interview and told me that she's taking my photo for further process.
She told me that I should be receiving another call but haven't heard back from them.Also not able to get in touch with her.
What can I do in such situations.
Do they reject candidates after clearing cultural/managerial rounds??
