Depends if you are campus or experienced hire -- campus hire federal analysts are making 76-86k out of undergrad. As an experienced hire coming into federal, expect maybe 90k-ish for SO. federal experienced hires get fuckedddddddd on salary. Can never make it up unless you boomerang

OP.. I meant... I don't think it is appropriate to look for a raise or additional income because of your living situation. If you are finding out you are underpaid compared to your equally performing peers, than by all means. Look forward to hearing you succeed in getting that salary correction. But if your motivation is, "I need more money because my sig other is in grad school and my BMW is pricey"... then you are a douche. Not saying you are a douche, just only if your motivation for more money is the latter.

There is no work life balance in federal. Oftentimes your contract only allows you to bill 40 hours a week. You have to perpetually write proposals that always lose on price in this LPTA environment we are in. You lose most nights and many weekends to RFIs and RFPs. You get promoted much later. You get paid less. There are no dinners or client dinners. The margins are low AF. Sometimes projects are straight up not profitable. Nothing makes up for the pay difference.

So you didn't really have consulting experience. That makes a difference.
