Yes low. Joined as an analyst for 75k 10 years ago in DC, but with LLP, still should be a bit more, especially since level 9 is consultant.

165 level 7, but I took some time off in the middle so you could definitely be much more in 10 years.

Yeah, with 5 YOE that's below market. I would think $100-115 would be more in line with that experience.

Entry analysts get 80k in DC, this is a hard low-ball.

Consultant is one level up from entry level at AFS, right? That base does seem low. @OP, how does that comp compare to what you make now?

It’s 2 levels above entry level, it would be a slight decrease in pay if they gave me the max side of the range
