I like the money.

Before this I was a lowly payroll clerk, making 45k, and my middle-aged manager who had been with the company 8 yrs was making the same as my now first year analyst salary. In industry it seemed like a slow ladder to climb to reach her level.

And then at the director level, (1 above her), which I thought was when you “made it” was actually just a typical consultant salary.

Had I stayed there I would have spent 4 more years in hopes of just breaking 70k and being considered for “supervisor.”


Consulting is like Democracy. It sucks, but is better than alternatives.




We can use Planning Poker to determine it

How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
