Yes. For sure. Should be around 130K.

Jump to another firm and ask for 140K and a $20K signing bonus. You’ll probably get it. Or close, given the reality on the ground.

Grossly underpaid even for Austin. Were all 8 years of your experience in DA?

It doesn’t matter what kind of school you went to. Every day you stay put you’re losing money. Only you can make that change. Know your worth.

What the fuck am I reading? NO, you are not underpaid. $90k for a Sr Con is par for the course, although yes it is on the lower end of the salary band. $130k would be the very very top of that scale. That’s what manager levels at Big4 are starting at. What’s wrong is having 8 YOE and being a Sr Con, I’m guessing that’s not 8 years in consulting?

I just jumped to $120k base for SC1 living in a tier 4 city by switching firms with 5yoe (2yrs as Consultant)

90K is low for a senior consultant unless you started as a staff/analyst 2 years ago. And even then it would be low for something as marketable as data analytics.

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
