With 6 YOE, it’ll be hard for them to match that 140 mark honestly, unless you’re commercial or cleared. FWIW came from Booz commercial with 3 YOE at 90k, most of my federal peers at 3 YOE were between 65-80

The salary numbers are more or less in line with federal - A tends to be a little higher than what you've quoted in my experience. Main difference is how long it takes to progress from one level to another. I do tend to see 30-year-old SAs on the commercial accounts whereas in federal mid-to-late 50s is more typical.

You could hit around $160k as a lead associate/project manager, but unless you are in cyber or are a top 1% performer that would probably require 20+++ years substantive experience in a currently in-demand area (almost certainly defense) and an open position. So very unlikely.
