Have you ever transferred laterally to your company’s office in London? People keep telling me it will be a pay cut from NYC to London?

Will it be a pay cut (or feel like one, at least, b/c cost of living)? Yeah. Should you do it anyway? Probably. As long as you're not getting completely hosed, the experience is worth it and should pay dividends later in your career as well. That was my experience, anyway... good luck!


Yeah the British pound is strong and you'll have a pay cut. Negotiate a cost of living adjustment to your salary before you transfer.


Pay cut

Big paycut usually

Husband is being required to go into work one day a week. This week they wanted him and extra day. I have a presentation that extra day so I asked if he could not or move to another day. Husband says I’m unreasonable. I should expect that there will be times I need to juggle my 2.5 year old and 6 month old alone with work. I’m already juggling them alone the days that he goes in and it’s completely miserable. I said if this is the routine I need outside help - nanny or baby sitter or something..
