Nice! 👍

Good for you. You have something that someone seems to want, and they (as you say) don't bad an eyelid. So what's the problem? Sure at some point, propel may expect you to have some tenure if you want to grow into a more seasoned executive. But that's a while away give your 5 YOE

You're OK because it's your first 5 YOE, you're growing your comp and learning more by moving around. It makes sense and congrats on the progression! I agree with others though that at 7 to 8 YOE it will make more sense to pick a place and stick with it for longer.

Dears, joining a global consulting firm in couple of months in Europe. However looking at some salaries posted here and online the discrepancy between Europe and US seems to be crazy (I'll receive a 50k yearly salary, which is considered good, compared to 70-100k in US).

Do you guys know why this gap exists and why not more people with good university grades move to US?

I currently work on a B2B (SaaS) product that has never ending things to be fixing and building which overall is great but the company isn’t doing that well and I feel really burnt out from being the only designer with no help. I’ve been thinking of leaving and many job openings are in more B2C spaces.
