Any insight on the question I asked?

It depends on multiple factors, your years of experience, the type of contracts (long term or short term), the dollar amount of contracts you have managed and your education and certifications. Then it varies even more when you look at big 4 or small boutique company. Could be as little as 70k or as much as 150k, there are so many factors. If you drop your years of experience and dollar amount of contracts you typically manage as well as number of contracts you manage at a time you could get a closer estimate.

Really depends. Boutique firm? Major firm? One of the Big 4? And the trouble that comes with each….

Assuming you’re on the GS scale? Jumping anywhere would likely bring a pay increase.

I mean- not to be an ass, but in all seriousness, those firms and positions are competitive. Do you have a background that competes? MBB in particular.

Genuine question: do you have experience in contracts management?

Yes, of course

I have not done any consulting before so I am not sure how it works, what I would need to set up (they mentioned that I would start a LLC and bill them directly, no idea how to do that), how to determine the tax implications of this, or what hourly rate I would expect. Can anyone offer advice?

A HR question I really want to understand. ISRS HR quoted a podcast "The not so great resignation" saying 70% regret leaving and many want to go back to old employer. If this really the case the employee likely left due to higher pay at the new company. If they want to boomerang back they will likely come back at even a higher rate than they left the new company for. So getting double raise when they boomeranged. Isn't it unbeneficial, why not just give employee a 7% raise in the first place?

How do I ask for a title change and pay increase to reflect what I actually do? Do I ask my contract house, or my NASA mgmt? Should I ask to make the pay retroactive since I was hired to do one thing, but do another?
