Am I Underpaid?

Been in data analytics for almost 5 years- make ~$65k with potential for 5% annual bonus. Was severely underpaid at a previous job so when I got the offer I jumped but now I’m beginning to think I’m a victim of lack of perspective. Thoughts?

    Interview elsewhere. If you get a higher offer, you are underpaid. If you cannot, you are paid exactly right.

      Exactly, everyone on this forum is paid exactly what they should be paid. Skills and experience are worthless unless you can articulate your value and negotiate your compensation.

      I’m not familiar with Memphis. But yes, I would be looking for 90 at least.. although 5 YoE should already be into six.You should get a graduate level degree though

    It may not be a bad idea to stretch your legs and see what other firms have to offer. If you love living in Memphis, learning a ton on the new job and have family nearby, I would stay a year and passively look for other opportunities. Money isn’t everything. Math and Econ major is a killer combo. If you wish, the world could be yours. Take your time and enjoy the world at your pace.

    You’re a victim of lack of experience and salary negotiation skills. Also, tbh, a BS in math/economics isn’t gonna take you too far. Get an MS for higher salaries.

    65k for Memphis is a good enough TC

    Look on glassdoor for avg pay for your role. If you work in a big company you can see on avg how much your peers make

  • Start interviewing, unfortunately employers will always base their pay above on what you previously made.

    You should be making at least $100K as senior, read, learn, build your case, and gun for more.
