Cyber Security Bowl

My partner makes 177k (10k bonus included) at BAH as an Associate with 7 years of experience doing very niche cyber security work. Is he paid fairly?

$177k for an Associate is definitely on the higher end, but not unheard of given the niche expertise. They are probably in the 1% of Associate level salaries.

Yes. Since when does Booz give bonuses? It’s all government work.

Associate is a level at BAH, equivalent to Senior Consultant at Deloitte (I don't know the EU version). OP is talking about their partner as in their significant other.

We combine income and file taxes together. We make 277k together before my bonus.

Look, I understand jokes can get lost in translation when read, but this is too easy to misinterpret!

Yes, that’s very high IMO. Accenture Security Consultant level is equivalent to Associate at Booz and they def cap at 130ish (commercial)

Yeah, that's by far the highest I've ever heard of an associate making.

Appears to be overpaid. I wouldn’t complain.
