I’m leaning towards just getting by - I definitely need to negotiate a raise soon.

I have some savings, but definitely not as much as I'd like. Right now, I'm focusing on paying down debt so I can have better cash flow. I'm relatively comfortable, but I'd love to be bringing in more. What about you, OP?

Yeah, I feel pretty well set up for my age and background

What is your CTC and your age?

I still want a little more but things are comfortable enough.

How much are you at?

I'm just floating by on my current salary. I do some side work that helps me with my fun purchases. Not saving as much as I should be though

What kind of side work do you do?

I joined consulting from industry with a salary increase of 60% and in hope to work on interesting and challenging projects. It has been only 8 months. My old job was slow, bureaucratic and boring but I barely worked 7 hours a day. While I am happy that I am learning a lot, I am also pushing between 12 to 16 hours a day and working for a toxic client. I am worried I will burn out soon. How do you manage to stay in consulting for so long ?

I'm happy in my role/salary, find it rewarding and the right work-life balance. My friends however, are talented and awesome so they've been rising up in their jobs and so, have a higher disposable income. When we go out especially on special occasions like trips/getaways, I'm starting to feel the pinch. They've been understanding and even give notice when it's a special occasion coming up where they want to splurge. If I don't go, it's fine but how do I spend time with them if everything is $$?

I see a lot of people making more money when they exit. In my experience, I have yet to find a role that pays more for a similar level of responsibility in a similar location.

Any advice on finding an opportunity that will lead to a salary increase, even if it’s only a modest one?
