How much lower are salaries at the German and/or Dutch firms? Any insight into a % difference compared to US salaries would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Only know this from anecdotally talking to some folks from the German practice but it seemed consistently 30 to 40 percent lower than US top line base. For example one of the consultants made high 60s while US counterparts were in the 90s, low 100s

Then don't forget different tax structure that would also take more of the pay... But then free Healthcare, cheaper cost of living, etc.

And free university, very cheap kindergarten etc. Those are costs you never will pay (or your kids)

Thanks D1 and SC1. I have definitely considered the hidden benefits, but wanted to get a sense of how much lower salaries are.

Even for expats the health care and childcare are free?

Ey 1: if you are full time and married with kids, it's all free. (included)

Anxiety before your sales demos?

Do these 2 things I used to do to get over it:

1. Know the product inside out - it will take time for you to gain confidence in your sales abilities but if you know the product will you’ll be more confident in that domain.

2. Do more demos - the more calls and presentations you do the more comfortable you’ll get. My advice is to try to get on a lot of presentations, even with leads that aren’t so good.
