I am an personal lines account manager/client manager (property and casualty) going on 6 years experience and I am being paid $53k a year. I am living in CA and work for a large corporation (about 1500 employees). Do you think that $53k is low or seems like adequate pay?

Do any of you (esp tech consulting) get this feeling of being constrained to a client / industry / sector/ city / country? Typically leaders of similar experience and pay levels in industry will be in global roles. However in b4 all roles are very local. Global roles if any, aren't true P&L roles and I see them more influencing roles rather than responsibility roles.
