Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant.

She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I

What would be a reasonable total comp to exit into medtech or health tech corporate strategy role at senior Manager level? The next level above is Director.

Is this too high or low?. Thank you for your insights!

I'm thinking about moving from New York to London. I have 7 years of experience at ad agencies. I'm looking at jobs like "marketing manager" at a brand or tech company or hybrid operations/growth roles. I'm not sure I could jump to a biz dev director role in an entirely new market, which is why I'm looking at generalist roles where my experience would count. From an initial search, it seems like London salaries are significantly lower than New York. Any recommendations on how to navigate this?
