I'm new to consulting but have 5 years relevant work experience. Feeling a bit bummed at what I'm being paid for my years of experience and my education (tier 1 undergrad and masters). Strongly considering leaving. Could use some words of encouragement and advice.

If I’m offered a position, how would I go about navigating a higher salary than I already said?

I started my career in 2011 with 3 lakhs per yr (Engineer, TCS). Today I earn 40 lakh per year (HR consulting, IIM)

Was way happier back then.

In 2011, I thought that if i start earning 30 lakh (inflation adjusted as of today) i will never need more money. But even at 40 lakhs today, i feel like an under achiever.

Realised that money is essential but not everything. Your CTC is not the barometer of happiness!

What should I do to be happy, not overthink in life, enjoy & chill

I heard that when Netflix hires outside counsel, it asks a series of questions to determine how credit is given at the firm selected. The goal is to ensure that the “old white hairs” at the top are not receiving/taking credit from the lawyers really doing and managing the lion’s share of the work. Some level of research shows that the real working lawyers tend to be predominantly women/POC who are essentially punished by old school origination systems. Thoughts?
