I'm an engagement manager, making roughly $240k all-in. I'm looking for director or sr. manager level roles in industry with a better work-life balance. Is it realistic to shoot for a pay increase?

Agree 100% with this. Depends on specialty, vertical, etc. 240 seems like a high end for a manager in a TC world. Industry you might need to shoot a bit higher to get equal pay. Depending on the company Director is not going to command a lot unless your talking FANG

I just took a director position and the total comp was about $340k. The AD positions I looked that were about $270-280k. So you probably don't even need to get full director to hit your comp goal.

Depends on location and industry, but 300k TC for Director is possible.

TC?

Or Total Comp

SA1, I’m gonna take a stab at it and say “Total Compensation"

What company do you work for ?

300k total comp is the only logical explanation for TC. Definitely not 300k technology consulting lol

What firm are you with?
