Congrats! I’m at the PwC AC making $56k and jusf got an offer for $100! PwC said they’d move me to a core and offer me retention bonus to stay but I’ve been asking to be moved to core for over a year! Woohoo we did it.

Nice! USDC folks are criminally underpaid. Almost every one of the devs I worked with during my time at D was amazing. Op, congrats! Spend a year or two at the new place, then hop again for another 50-100% bump. Then do it again!

So underpaid. I remember another “core” analyst on my team was making $85K and I essentially had to work more than them (pick up workshops/tasks other people didn’t want to do, attend additional meetings, firm initiatives, etc) while being paid less to prove that I can handle travel consulting… I blame university recruiting

I am proud of you!! You worked your ass off and it paid off. Don’t worry about anyone else, you’re doing great!! Pretty soon you’ll be making 250K+

I remember trying to switch to a core consulting model within Deloitte to gain skills that align with my career goals. A partner of the practice I supported wanted me to remain a delivery center resource for another year to “prove myself” even tho ive been proving myself for the last 1.5 years… consistent positive feedback in all my reviews

like

Yeah. That’s outrageous. “ prove myself” . Honestly speaking. These are all artificial hardships. I am proud of you. You are free bird now. Remember you can shape your destiny rather than something dictated by partner and director. This next job may not be final and things may not be smooth. Just be kind, be hardworking, be helpful. You will rise. Another , piece of advise on the 250 k salary . Focus on long term skills that will help you get 250 and more for many years. Not just reach the peak and struggle with fear of job loss. Many of us after getting such a high salary are unsure which way to go , how to be relevant. Best wishes amigo!!
