Coming up on my 6 month review at work, I’m a junior and new to the world of consulting, should I be asking for a raise whilst at this meeting?

You need to transfer to the U.S. Your salary will at least double if not triple.

If you can’t move, I would definitely ask for a raise.

From my research I’m about 15% below the average pay for a junior cyber security consultant, so I believe with my experience 30% is a big jump for me but small for the company especially since not only do I have these certifications which they are aware of, I am supposedly the only one to have local government (council and combined authority), public transportation, public broadcasting, fire & rescue service, and Public Health (NHS) experience.

You live in the UK and earn 30k with 4 YOE? Jesus that's rough...

Yes

No I don’t know. But 30k at 4 years experience for your employee is a steal

I earned £28k as a fresh graduate 6 years ago! You're definitely underpaid and should aim for £60k at least

btw Cap Invent UK is always recruiting for Digital Security figures and we have a pretty solid team in London. You should definitely check out the openings.

At 4 YOE you can come in as a Senior Consultant and probably aim for £60/65k.

Little more than 2 YOE in Consulting. Make 80K base right now, offered 85K base at a startup (unicorn). How can I best negotiate to raise the base compensation? I realize I can get higher base offers elsewhere and was ideally asking for at least 100K base.

At my new job, we’re told to get 8 billable hours of work a day on our timesheet. Even when I thought I had a lot to work on, the most I could get was 5 hours.
I’m super stressed about getting in trouble, even though I have actively asked for more work. I was unemployed for 9 months during this pandemic and I now I’m super afraid of losing my job again. Is this a normal practice? Idk how I’ll ever consistently have that much work.
