Do the exit opps get better after you hit 2 YOE? Every recruiter that contacts me gives me an insultingly low offer (below or at my current comp, which isn’t good to begin with). Any ways to increase the comp of my offers, or do I just have to wait? (And btw, these low offers are after negotiating)

I can't speak for smaller companies, but for FAANG type companies, the lowest levels are probably on par with sr consultant / manager levels of experience. The hiring bar would likely prevent you from getting a role at the top companies. Comp is probably 2-3x what entry level (< 2 YOE) makes in consulting.

Slightly - they may be a higher level of at better companies. Under 2 years you mostly get BA type reach outs

Consulting pays more than industry till M level, barring FAANG.

My wife is starting a full time job after 2 years. I’ve been paying all the expenses since we’ve been married. We each have our own separate accounts and a joint account. Her salary will be around $50-$75k. We agreed she needs to contribute to the expenses and I was thinking that starting off paying half the rent would be reasonable ($1,500). Maybe put that amount per month into the joint account and then she can do what she wants with the rest? Reasonable? How do others handle expenses?
