Wondering if there's any tips out there for attaining a significant pay jump/career move. Been in retail banking for years, teller up to branch manager. Pandemic hit and that was the exit sign for me. Found this current position within my company and took it bc it's wfh and touches on a piece of what I like which is aml and risk. But the pay is just not there, I'm struggling to pay bills and I know I'm worth so much more but I have not been able to figure out how to get from point A to point B.

The safest way is to start your own thing while still working at your current job. It doesn't have to be in your industry. Try something different. You will probably have more enjoyment and won't get burnout easily.

Why not lean in to your interest in AML? I'd say risk as well, but honestly I'm here and I'm looking for exit opps as well - the pay isn't what I'd hoped it would be. Have you looked into the career trajectory for AML?

I have but it has been hard to break into it or find connections. Also, the last time I made a connection they told me to apply to an entry level position, they didn't even care to look at my background or what I bring to the table.

Thoughts on comp from those in the know? Considering an offer to join a mid sized asset manager, $30bn AUM as a funds / PE transactional associate. Im an 8th year at a v5 (10 years out of law school). Total comp = $450 (300k base, rest bonus). Hours per week likely 50-60 (working way more now). They offer great 401k matching but they don't increase the base (or even likely the bonus) every year. Is this a decent package? Should I hold out? I am the breadwinner and have 3 little ones, for context
