Didn't get promoted to SA but got a 7% Distinctive Achievement bonus... what? Still making under 60k even though I'm cloud certified. I feel severely undervalued and under paid.

My entire starting group in Atlanta made 75k a year in TDP and were given a 10k signing bonus. I started out 20k less than them and didnt get a bonus. It'll take me 3 more years at this rate to make near what they started with. I guess I'll try and grab another cloud certification before showing myself the door.

1 year, Atlanta. Thought getting Core HR Cloud Certified would help but nope. I got a raise large enough to pay for 1 year of parking and a month's student loan payment

I was making 75k as a starting analyst and got SA promo and 10% raise my first year. You are seriously being undervalued

like

How long have you been an analyst? What city?

No i dont think that raise is out of line. Typically the path to SA is more than a year, and a 10%+ raise in a non promo year is strong. You may be worth more but remember, but that likely will require moving to a high cost location and changing firms. IT consulting still pays less than true strategy consulting ive found even with hot skills like cloud / blockchain. Those making a ton with tech skills are typically in the valley.

I don’t think it will take three years to catch up, arent you maybe one year out from senior? Something was being held against you when you came in; did you come from a lesser school or work in a COC / COE? More details help us with figuring out market value.

Man thats rough

BCG1 your opinion on how much jumping is too soon? I have worked at 4 companies (2 were full time tech jobs before graduating college), average tenure is 1 year. At first out of college job, mid year promotion to senior analyst, then at year end poached to current firm as consultant after 14 months total. I've heard it's ok to jump early in your career, and jobs before college graduation are not scrutinized too much. I would like to stay in current role for two years, after 2 years I have opportunity to make solution architect. If I don't make it, I would have something lined up to jump at 2 year mark to a senior consultant role at accenture/deloitte. That sounds ok right? Although, if I got a sweet offer with raise and title bump one year into this role I would definitely take it.... I feel like at some point I definitely need a >18 month stint somewhere.

Man, I’m glad I got out of that world. Paying people different starting raises is bound to create tension. And then the constant nickel and diming...

What is cloud certified?

Longer because ACN tech is not as heavily focused on up or out.
