Anyone has info of TC in London for E6 or above. From reading here it appears London compensation is a fair amount lower than MPK, so wondering if it's even worth going through the process.

YoE: 13
TC: £255k

    Where are you getting that high TC? Twitter/Google staff+?

      Either that or software engineer/tech lead at a smallish hedge fund. A number of those paying that around Mayfair.

    Off topic. What's the quality of life in London at your TC. I've mostly seen lower numbers.

      It depends on what you want in terms of accommodation - if you want to live in a nice house, you'd still need to spend 1MM-5MM, which my comp doesn't allow as I pay 50%+ tax for a fair amount of the comp.
      My comp allows to not have to worry about day to day spending, going out, travelling 2 times a year to nice destinations and own a nice 2/3 bedroom flat - just not in a prime area. Also, if you have kids and want to put them in a private school, you'd pay between 15k and 30k per year, which if you have 2 kids, you can see it's not easy.

      FTR the top 1% starts around 160k in England. That shows how fucked London comp is.

    You can discuss the range right away with a recruiter. A friend did that for a different role.

    Pretty sure FB would at least match your compensation, including stock. The lowest base for an E6 is £120k + 20% base bonus. I don’t know about normal E6 hire stock offers, but it should be easy to get $500+ at E6+
