Good morning. How much should I accept for an Information Systems Security Analyst role? I’m currently making $75K with 2 YOE. What’s a competitive salary? I want to move to another company. Any good company suggestions? I’m still on the market. Thanks!

Come on over to Mandiant FireEye. With 2 YOE, you can apply for an Associate Consultant or Consultant role. Associate might be close to $100k TC but consultants definitely are somewhere in that $120k range. I came in as a senior consultant with a $160k base, $24k annual bonus and another $20k+ in annual RSUs. I live in an extremely LCOL area and I'm 100% remote. Can't beat it. Certs, maybe a security+ or OSCP but you've gotta be able to demonstrate your skills in IR or Offensive Security.

Lonely? How so?

120k <2 years out. Are you in a LCOL city? Consulting is probably your best bet if you hop companies

Depends, what areas of cyber are you working in currently? If cloud, pursue AWS or other cloud provider certificates. If you have those then focus on the CISSP.

Started with EY as an intern, currently a Senior 2 moving to Senior 3 in Oct. Part of Indirect Tax in the New York Metro Area. Reviews and utilization are consistently above peer group average.

I need a 17% raise to break 90k at Snr 3, which I’d be bummed to not get after EY preached about high raises. New job searching level bummed 😔.

Anyone have experience with a Base + RSU only offer from AWS? The base very small, with a 2 year “cash sign on” that brings TC back up to a reasonable level. But after 2 years, your RSUs are fully vested, and TC = Base + RSUs. No additional detail is provided on the value of the RSUs… except for a “Target Total Comp”. Thoughts on this setup?

Hello, I am considering joining Deloitte, . I wanted to join as a manager, however, offer might come as a SC. What would be the difference in salary % wise ? would it be worth it to go as a SC instead of Mgr? Do I even have the option to negotiate or to say why I think I should be a manager and not a SC? Have you seen something like this at a big 4? How about WLB? Thanks
