FINALLY received the promotion this year from Analyst to Consultant. Had support from new project after contributing 2 years with my credentials and experience. It took way too long though, in my opinion.

How is it that low!? Dm me if you’re interested in GH.

Change firms. Seriously

I’ll bet OP came from BAH, sounds about right

bro wtf? i make more and i only have 1.5 years exp

What was your annual raise? Or what did you start with? Geez

Get out!

Similar situation when I was coming out of UG. Accepted a low offer because I didn't know any better. Was a rockstar and promoted quickly but the bumps barely brought the base of an Analyst's compensation at other firms. If you have the experience you say you do, it's time to shop around. If you like your firm, you can use the new offers to ask for a match.

Hi OP, would be happy to chat about Deloitte if you’re looking for a move

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
