My current company is working on onboarding me to a new client. I accepted a verbal offer from another firm this week and haven’t signed anything.

Our office manager is on the hunt for a time tracking and invoicing system to replace our current solution. I know how much everyone here enjoys time sheets, so I thought I'd seek some input and direction.

For $10 or less per month per user. Are they looking for a unicorn? Is there a fix out there?

I'm an entry level consultant in Dallas at a smaller company. This is my first job in consulting and I've been here about 7 months. My experience has been good in terms of work life balance, autonomy, and culture. My only real issue is my compensation. I was happy with it at first, but with the workload and expectations I'm feeling undervalued. My base is 82k, 5k signing bonus, no annual bonuses or anything. Im wondering if I should start looking elsewhere or if I'm just getting greedy
