How do you all balance your years of experience with the role you’re in? I’m only 26 but leading a small contract on my own. I’m not unhappy with my salary but I’m sure anyone else in my position would make substantially more than I am, where my years of experience are a limiting factor. Thoughts/advice?

If you're working at Booz, it's not your YOE, it's the firm. There's a lot of staff aug work at Booz.

My work isn’t staff aug and YOE is definitely a limiting factor

Define "leading a small contract"

Imo it's worth leaning into salary discussions but not getting caught up with comparing yourself to someone more senior. Think from their POV... young person steps up and manages a small team. You gonna pay them same as the person who's been around for 10yrs and arguably does more for the team? Just suddenly spike their salary? Never works like that.

Right I get that, that’s why I’m not really sure how to approach it. Like on one hand most of the other folks in my position are lead associates so I’m definitely in a reach role but at the same time I’m still doing the same job as they all are. But not saying I should be making the same as someone significantly more experienced than me

I had a phone screening for a position that requires a series 7, 9, 10, 24, and 63. I am qualified for the position but will need to obtain 3 of those licenses. The recruiter told me the high range for the salary band is 64k.. this seems super low for this type of position. I told her I was looking for 80k at a minimum. She said she’d put the notes in and would like me to move on to next step. What is the likelihood they’ll give me the 80? Why would she push me through knowing I want 16k more?

AmLaw200 I interviewed with will likely go with a “more experienced candidate”. I’ve got 8 years and its a staff attorney role so whatever.

Pissed because they knew from the recruiter that I was a “diverse” candidate and they sent me the Mansfield self-identification survey days before they actually requested an interview.
