How valuable are the salary insights that recruiters can provide? I’m just starting to apply to consulting and startup roles. I could easily apply to some of them myself, but I don’t have a good feel for the pay because these are new/smaller companies.

What do you make now? What do you feel you’re worth?

I work for the gov now and am applying to very niche crypto/fintech roles, so my current salary isn’t that relevant as a jumping off point. I’m trying to balance how accurate/useful the info from the recruiter for my comp negotiation would be vs. the potential offers I might not get due to firms not wanting to pay the recruiter’s fee.

Can we get some experiences from people for Microsoft Federal consulting? Specifically the account delivery roles? Things like work life balance, time remote vs on client sites, compensation, etc? Would you say it is more like "Microsoft" or has that part of the company just replicated Deloitte, Booz Allen, etc?

Salary POV: I recently accepted a position at Oracle Consulting USA (Cloud ERP practice) in their delivery organization as a Director Cloud ERP. I accepted the Salary of $195K and a quarterly bonus of 35%. The hiring manager told me that realistically people get around 10 to 20%. I have 20+ years of experience in EBS, Cloud ERP as an SME as well as PM roles. My question is did I settle for less? Should I have negotiated better? Any inputs from people in similar roles at Oracle or ex-Oracle?
