For the past 2 years I’ve been scrambling for digital projects at Accenture and even took management and data projects (neither I was qualified to do, but the teams needed help) to avoid too much time on the bench and getting fired- I’ve been working for almost 4 yrs but I only just got a 20% raise to $85k. When I see people here talk about making way way more for less experience, I wonder if I’m being underpaid. And how would I start a negotiation for a raise or look for other opportunities??

I feel completely lost at work. I started at a new company 1 month ago and got put on a client that’s just as confused as I am. I’m only associate level (with a little experience from my last firm) but I feel like I’m “in charge” of this audit. I feel like nothing on the audit has been done and I’m soooo nervous for manager review. Wtf do I do?! I’m so overwhelmed.
