OP if you are a M and Seniors are making more than you, maybe it’s because you don’t know what inverse correlation means.

Not belief ^^. A market requirement to capture new people. If you and I make the same with similar skill sets at different companies, I generally need a premium to move over or else it is t worth the hassle

Inverse correlation seems far-fetched. There are overlaps for various reasons which are for instance different billing rates, different background, different market rate for skills, different career trajectory and aspirations, etc.

I don’t follow this question. If consultant comp is 1x, sc is around 1.5x, m is around 2.5x, sm is around 3.5x. How is it inversely correlated?
