Have anyone been low balled when they joined a consulting firm? If yes, how did you go about fixing the gap in salary? I think I was low balled as a senior consultant and there was a gap of about 20-25% when I was made the offer. I was naive and did not negotiate - still living with the consequences.

If you made $225k total comp pre-tax and lived in HCOL area (but not quite NYC bad), how much would you spend on rent? Assume you’re debt free and will largely be WFH and live with a partner who also is WFH. So good space is important (not living the traveling consultant life). Partner can contribute but not a ton ($800-1000/month). Trying to figure this out. Thanks for any thoughts/insights on how you’d think about this.

Earlier post on sharing salary with friends and family got me curious. Are consultant salaries that much higher than other white collar jobs? All of my friends and family are either in tech or medicine, so my salary is comparatively on the lower end and I’ve never really considered what I make to be that high.
