What was the job you interviewed for? If it wasn’t Senior they probably assumed you were okay with what you were interviewing for so there might not be a lot of wiggle room. You could ask about ability for promotion - ie is there an opportunity to be promoted after a year if you perform well in role, etc

The role was analyst but typically that’s what people take and shortly after might get promoted to senior. I have seen anyone leave public at this company and start as a senior with my level

I've seen supervisors at RSM even shift to tax analyst roles and then make Sr. Analyst the next year.

Do you think you’re qualified at this point to start in this new role as a senior? And if you do, did you sell yourself as one during the interview? If that wasn’t something discussed in the interview, it may be too late to ask and may come across as entitled. I’d take the analyst role, learn the ropes, and earn your promotion. This will set you up for higher comp too when they have proof of the value you add

Got offered to come on as a full-time employee after working for Guidehouse as a contractor for about 4 months. My position wouldn’t change, but after speaking with the recruiter I have a feeling I’m being low balled. I have over a year and a half of consulting analyst exp prior to contracting, and am currently acting as a team lead on this project. Am I wrong to expect a pay range of 70k-90k? They’re currently offering a little less than 50k
