No decrease. Keep looking but it also depends on the lifestyle and priorities. Money may not be everything at some point in your life and other things like family time are higher value to a point where money doesn’t matter. Consider the bigger picture.

25% decrease, but went to a startup with lots of equity. Working 30-60 depending on whether I feel like pushing or not that week. The freedom and ownership is UNPARALLELED AND I’M NEVER LOOKING BACK! 🥳🤩😎

Some days I consider taking a 100% paycut to work 0 hours a week

likefunnyupliftingsmart

-0-

40 a week is standard (in the US and certainly in Western Europe)

Never negotiate with yourself.

You get a salary to do a job. Unless the contract specifies hours I don't think you have a leg to stand on in many countries. Same reason the contracts don't specify overtime pay rates. Its all bundled in.

I moved from big four to boutique for a 40 hr work week and pay raise. Unicorns exist.

Something folks underestimate a lot is time. In consulting or front office finance you WASTE so much time for someone else without the due financial return. I see the value early on in your career, but long term I find that folks are wasting their potential unless they really love it and don’t have better alternatives. When I switched into high tech, it unlocked so much time that I was able to put my money to use in stocks, real estate, etc, so long term the impact on my net worth / lifestyle is ten fold compared to what consulting or finance could give me monetary wise. I should be able to leave corporate jobs by 35, sustain on my other passive streams and venture out into the real adventure (work / project) that interests me no matter the outcome. That is freedom in my mind. All these jobs are jobs at the end of the day, and have capped income stream. It’s a risk averse white collar delusion to think that these jobs will give you true freedom / happiness long term, but of course different folks have different goals / perception of life so to each their own.
