Who is happy with their WLB to pay ratio? What’s your firm, YOE, and position, and total comp?

$140 base, 6 YOE. 45-50 hours/week but easily over half is spent listening in meetings and just coaching my team and about 6-8 is spent traveling so it doesn’t feel rough at all. Biggest game changer is having a boss that trusts me. For the actual work I am doing myself it’s interesting and innovative work I enjoy. Will be kicking myself if I stray from this as I’m actually really happy professionally right now

I’m fairly happy with mine:
- Have been working full time for 14 years
- Avg 50-55 hour weeks in a BU lead role in tech
- Find the work interesting and impactful, have free weekends + time for gym/dinner most weeknights
- Total comp is mostly equity based so varies with stock price (down lately), was $4-8m the last 3 years

Fwiw, I was a jr. partner at a consulting firm before this, made about $1m a year there and worked 60+ hours with travel, did not find it to be a good WLB.

Would love to know more about how you made the transition what you did before etc

I don’t want to jinx it - but I’m sort of semi retired and coasting making 300k at age 47.
Individual contributor role - very technical.
Wife makes over 400k in industry at age 42 and I’ve no reason to push any harder.

I manage all the house work plus my job from home in less than 30 hours a week. Nap in the afternoon, gym in the middle of day, coach soccer at 5pm.

What am I supposed to do? Answering the question. This pile on is why you’re not hearing from others on this platform who make way more than me and therefore leads to a skewed perspective

Very happy. 35-40/week, 4 YOE, C, ~162k TC

Honestly, me. Just joined last year, making 175k as an Associate. But I had much worse WLB and pay as a grad student.

175k base? Or TC? Seems low for post-MBA MBB TC? I’m just curious (going to mba myself this year)

3.5 YOE, Senior Associate, ~$230TC; I work a lot which sometimes is a grind, but considering my YOE and TC I often think I am getting the better end of the deal. Up for Mgr this as well which would push total comp somewhere around $260

No B-school although considering going back as sponsored for a break and the network. The work can be stressful when there is a lot and it feels impossible to get everything done. Also you have to be comfortable defending your positions and decisions when you are put on the spot by partners. But also exciting when things are moving quickly and the work is interesting

MD1 - I was great at delivery but had natural inclination to building/selling new offerings. Had excellent mentors/Partners along the way that took me under their wings to teach me the art of selling. I made them a lot of money before I took a risk to come here. It’s been paying off financially and from a WLB perspective.

Again, I don't think it's that important in Strategy as long as it's from a Target or comparable program. I got mine at a non-target, T20, but you should be fine anywhere in the T40 (i.e., reputable program).
