Has anyone moved into an internal strategy & operations role at a big 3 commercial bank like JPMorgan? Thoughts on such a role or making a switch? What should one expect or look out for? How’s work life balance?

Much better work life balance and less travel than is typical for consulting. You get to do interesting work, but obviously limited to banking. The downside is that annual comp increases tend to be lower than consulting, and promotions can be a bit slower.

Looking for general feedback on salary & IC numbers: Had a recruiter reach out about a manager gig at PWC in a sales effectiveness strat role in TMT.

Also mentioned IC at PWC is 25% of base comp, true? (IC seems high/inflated)

I work client side and had a woman in my team just put in her notice because she got an offer from another company for much more than she’s making here. Is $60k for a fully remote mid-level (3-5yrs exp) design position reasonable? If I rehire at the same salary will I get someone who will feel underpaid? It’s a state org so the benefits are amazing - but I don’t want to find myself in a situation where someone feels under valued from day 1. Thoughts, creative fishies?

Always baffled how in America we hire a director and an editor separately for the most part. And that many directors don’t supervise the edit.

In some other parts of the world the director has in house editors and it’s an orchestrated thing.
