Two things. One, sooner or later we all get replaced by younger and better looking versions of ourselves. Two, and in a serious note, you need to know your niche, your competitive advantage and defend and protect it. Sometimes that's unpleasant but you get used to it by going through experiences like this. Learn from this if you really felt you are a good fit for the role. You win or you learn, always.

They are replacing me with another analyst I've helped, and trained using alteryx and tableau. I'm so confused and starting to hate consulting. This always happens, they told me it's not performance issue and they are just trying to consolidate work..

don't take it personally OP. Make sure you get a positive review and move on. It could be you're too expensive a resource and they don't need your skillset anymore, I've been in a similar situation

OP same thing happened to me. I was so sure I was the best person on the team who knew everything about the project that they'd be crazy to roll me off anytime soon. I learnt one thing - you will find a better project with a better team and not to take things that happen at work too personally to stay happy. Don't let them see it affects you that much. Lot more to life than this project. I know, sounds like dating advice but it works! 🤷🏽‍♀️

Make sure that the SM is really backing you. Did you already get the promotion.

It could just be that they need only one person.

M7 infrastructure in Texas. I'm currently paid near bottom of scale in my group. I'm not upset and love my job and my peers. I have an offer for 40% raise to industry job. I prefer my current work though, both from daily work and career path. But 40% raise is a big deal. At what point is the pay raise more important than daily work joy. I'm stressing over this decision. I don't really want to leave.

If I move into a financial analyst position after two years of audit experience (and 1 promotion) will i likely start at the bottom of the totem pole? Trying to get an idea of what my salary would be. I feel this role is kinda critical for my 20 -30 year plan so I’m willing to start at an A1 position again. any insight here would be great. Thanks
