Ok, so now I need advice on a strategy. I'd prefer to stay, but since I was low balled when I started is it possible to bridge the gap or do I need to jump ship for that to happen? Get an offer and go to HR? Does that ever work? Kinda bitter now though.

Level and pay?

This post is laughable. What exactly did you lead in industry? I've found the needed skillsets to be quite different.

Yea, it doesn't sound like you aren't getting promoted quick enough, it sounds like you didn't properly negotiate your job. They are separate issues.

Self awareness could be an issue. Not saying it is but something to think about. It happens a lot in this business.

PwC, you hit the nail on the head. I was in a bubble by staying with the same company for 6 years out of ASU and didn't know the current landscape. I'm debating between going back to Industry or switching firms for a higher salary.

Yeah when I negotiate salary I ask myself "am I comfortable being in this range and level for the next 18-36 months?" If no, there's more conversation to be had.

Acn2, how do u convey that to the recruiter in a way that it'll make u seem like u actually deserve it and not being petty about salary?

Real talk, tho. Would you be willing to make less if you could do interesting accounting work, be on a team of people you respect, and your hours were capped at 50 even during the busiest times? I’ve worked with countless professionals who find their salary has a diminishing return once it hits a certain threshold. It’s like there is an inverse relationship to happiness.
