Nah FDD is typically underpaid. You should definitely be getting a good raise if you jump, unless you think your current salary is way above market.

Exception being if you join a start-up with lower base but good stock options/bonus, but that's different.

I have 1.5 YOE and half in FDD. Is it realistic for me to land a senior FP&A position?

I’m British, but left for the US in 2015 initially for a secondment but ended up staying. Dearly miss home, but with Brexit and shrinking of an already small market size, it’s unattractive from a professional stand point.

I could stomach a salary cut if I returned to the UK, but it seems like such a struggle unless you’re earning £250k+ HHI. Maybe it’s just a London thing. Maybe I’m too pessimistic.
