Lots of reason can be behind that... Years of experience outside RB, performance, country, CC, internal contributions, ability to generate business, etc. It is hard to tell really without the specifics. I would encourage you to talk to your mentor, he may be in a better place to provide some advice.

Man, I hope this is the same Principal you are referring to RB. Just kidding, there are likely a bunch of reasons as Principal1 mentioned. Beyond talking to your mentor you could also have a chat with your colleague and/or HR to ask for advice.

So is it normal that the client hates me because I load them with a lot of work and expect them to ALWAYS finish on time? We had good relationship during workshop but not so much after execution.

Anyone else think companies have convinced us salary is a taboo topic only to help the top get away with unequal pay. base salary should be standardized and bonuses depend on performance (chargeable hours, project reviews, hours charged to internal codes).

Does it make sense to hire an executive career coach? So, I want to move on and find another job, also I would rather move to California or NY, I’m in MA now. My problem is that I’ve been with my current employer for 7 years, and they transferred me from Europe 5 years ago. I’m in my first VP job, and I got promoted from the inside. So my network is not really that big, it’s largest part consists of our employees, and I don’t have very deep connections in the HR community yet.
