I'm currently at a strong practice at a T2, and am considering whether the upside of moving outweighs the risk. I'm in the UK, where there is a meaningful pay delta at the same level, and expect TC would be 20-25% more. I do feel like I'm paid pretty well as it is. My typical hours are 55-60, with occasional peaks at 70. (Continued below)
