Is this a joke? I would maybe take this is there was an extra 0 there.

Sadly not a joke mate 😔 this is actually not a bad offer in Japan, wages there are ridiculously low for entry-mid level

Where are u based now? Is speaking Japanese a must for this role?

I’m in the Middle East, but started BCG in the USA. Japanese is not a must but strongly preferred!

For the uninitiated — why not? Is the offer too low bc it’s Japan? Bc series D should pay more? Thanks :)

Yeah I’d be looking at making double that in a few months at BCG for example. @Director 1: Would this deal make sense if I were to negotiate some meaningful RSU? I do like the startup and the team and getting tired of consulting in covid conditions.. I’m just wary of taking the wrong option just because I want to get off the consulting ship

Hard pass

Series D? 90k? Unless it’s your goal of living in Japan, this doesn’t sound like a winner.

Yeah I used to live in Japan and I enjoyed it, but not in desperation to move back. Wages in Japan in general are terrible 😔

No no no

I could use some guidance on how to transition out of firm life into a government role. Prior to law: four years working for a state and a city, and four years before that worked at a consulting agency strictly serving government agencies and cities/counties. You’d think this would parlay well into the government roles I am applying for, but so far no dice. I’m entering my fourth year practicing as a lawyer. I love admin law, have some litigation and some transaction work as a lawyer. Thanks!
