I'm thinking of making a move from deals strategy manager to a corporate strategy manager role with 19,000 AED per month + housing allowance at Dubai.

Is it a good comp?

19 is nothing. But I guess it’s worth taking a pay cut to get out of KPMG

Little to no information to offer advice. Whether it’s good comp depends on your expenses, education, work history, current comp, and so on. The best comp is the comp you’re able to get. 19k + housing is great for most people. It’s not “manager” salary, but I’m sure you already knew that. The only reason you’d be considering this given you work in deals at KPMG is 1.) you’re about to kill yourself/your team/your leadership, or 2.) it’s substantially better $/hr with good WLB.

Offer more context on your situation if you want better advice.

I’m not trying to boast but I earn more than that and I’m entry level

That’s interesting guys in the comment box, is KPMG this bad? Say a kpmg europe move. Is it entrenched or is it a particular office problem?

It’s very low . Managers get at least 40k per month
