Consulting

I just finished my third year as a business technology analyst in Deloitte’s Analytics and Cognitive Consulting. I’m only making $55k with no bonus. Should I leave? Do market adjustments happen?

This sounds low. Accenture pays analysts at the entry level $90k+. Look around for other opportunities.

PWC 1— it all depends on the business case. 6 years ago, I had an offer from ACN for $120k at a consultant level.

The easiest way for a market adjustment is to go to the market and get an adjustment. (Look for opportunities elsewhere)

Whaaaat? Are you up for a promotion in the very near future? If yes, get a market competitive rate or get out. If no, get out. $55k is incredibly low for any consultant position, let alone 3 years of experience :/

Are you US based? This isn’t adding up for US

OP, gtfo here. That is insulting to you. Now don't dwell on the past and just look ahead. Start applying now.

There is no way this can be true in the US

Then def have a comp discussion with your competency lead PPD. 3k of raises in three years seems out of line with market and standard progression of the job. Not to mention my understanding is that BTAs tend to be well paid anyway. My first year raise was 3k by itself. Are you underperforming (rhetorical)? Something isn't right about this.

That’s ridiculously low for the US. You should request a comp discussion the very least

Why have you not gotten promoted after 3 years?

Maybe he’s a feb hire. Feb hires take pretty much 3 years (2.7 years) to get promoted

Really depends on your region too. Are you outside of the US? In Canada BTAs start in high 50s/low 60s

That’s below the Consultant level midpoint...unless your group doesn’t have the BA level?

OP, are you a BTA or were you hired into the UDSC or PDM career models as a BTA equivalent? If either of the latter, I’d try to switch to the traditional model.

OP at face value it seems very low but you need to provide more facts for us to tell you whether that salary is fine.

What SC1 said !! OP is not answering questions here and not providing specifics without which it’s all out of context and half baked information.
