Life's too short for a 12-hrs-a-day base-case expectation.
Strategy Director, CPG in-house
£120k base +30% cash bonus +50% Long-term incentive (both target, can be exceeded)
My typical day:
0730 alarm and spend time w/my kid
Jog to work, shower, coffee + pastry
At my desk between 0930-1000
Typically out the door at 1730, rarely later than 1800,having eaten lunch at a proper table and had plenty of time to attend to personal errands.
Occasionally catch up on emails at night over a lagavulin.
Weekend work almost unheard of
Wouldn't go into consulting for twice the money, let alone half.
