Would you transition to a brand manager? I’m 30 and thinking about the long term. Hear horror stories of people not lasting past 40 in the industry. Have an opening to do it eventually on brand side.

It’s not a terrible career switch if you can convince someone to hire you and you’re ready for a generally more boring job

Don’t leave because of that.

Not leaving. I work in-house at a major brand. One of the “perks” is the ability to move between creative and brand if you wish. I’m not saying it’d happen right away but it’s something I’d consider in a few years. Not sure what other in-house agencies i would go to....so I’d like to build a career on the other side

Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE? My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k. For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc. Thanks!
