Is $130k for Accenture consultant level with 9 yoe in industry, 0 yoe in consulting asking too much? I understand there are standard salary bands for different levels but it seems crazy they wouldn’t be willing to start someone higher with so much industry experience.

You should ask 160k. I am 9 YOE and was given 160k base at A

160 is too damn high. I would say 130 is legit

YOE but itself is not the whole equation. It depends on your previous role too. But I think that actually is on a higher end unless you are coming from and organization that is better than Accenture. Once in there you will find many others with equal or more YOE at lower salary than that. You can ask for higher if your area of work is rare and you have highly desired skill-set.

I’d push for more assuming your industry experience is all relative and you’re being credited with YOE at level coming in as a consultant. I came in close to 140k as a C

I suppose it depends on the industry and the relevance of your knowledge but this would probably be a bit high for utilities, it's too high for L9s.

It seems about right but also depends on your city or regional location if you are US based.

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
