I'm at 145k with 6 YOE supporting the IC. Should I even entertain GS roles in the IC and would I be able to retain salary compensation?

It's gonna be hard to make close to comparable comp as a GS in the IC. The IC is notorious for bringing in experienced external hires at ridiculous levels like 10s and 11s, which would put you way off track on comp. To hit $145, you'd need to come in at a 14-7 or 15-1, both of which are incredibly unlikely as an external hire in the IC, especially one who only has 6 YOE. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's literally impossible, just highly, highly unlikely.

My spouse is a contractor for the IC as well and they have a higher salary (200k) for 9 YOE. We were considering it for me since I have the lower of the two pays. Will like to stay in the IC for the mission.

If they really want you they’ll figure out how to bring you in at your current salary

You might have better luck looking at places like DARPA and DIU

I wouldn't go for anything lower than a 14

Highly unlikely. Certain IC agencies won’t bring on anyone higher than a GS-12 as a matter of principle.

Over the long run you’ll catch back up on salary. However, starting out most roles are somewhat limited in what you can come in at. The benefit of Govt work is the pension. Since you are younger, you’re at a good decision point if you want to make that jump.

MD1 I don’t disagree - but you can also put the same pension contributions into a 401K and earn a retirement that way. For me, the differential between my private sector salary vs USG salary, especially when tracked over time, greatly outweighs the pros from the pension I would get after I retire at 62.

Interested in perspectives on training a very inexperienced person (high school graduate) to be the assistant you want them to be (requiring patience and training to develop skills the person may or may not be able to develop) versus hiring an experienced executive assistant (20+ years experience known to be excellent) for a partner slowly developing book but rapidly developing leadership (on executive level) at the firm.
