Has any investigator went to review or vice versa? Is the pay equivalent?
The back to the field thing is a disaster for me, and I have no idea how I did it before, so I am thinking about applying to jump to review just do I can stay here to take care of my family priorities but I cant take a huge pay cut…
Just piggybacking off your post, as I am curious too. Sorry I don’t have much insight to add.
I did speak with a reviewer about a month ago who was previously a FI but relocated to an area (in which she did not want to work in the field) and made the switch to review. She said it’s way less stressful.
From what I remember there is 3 different levels of review and they give a pay increase with each but I don’t know what the top level pays. Oh, and review never gets any random pay increases. We do have yearly reviews for merit raises but I’m sure the field does as well.
