underpaid, overpaid, or just right?

 
#1 underpaid, overpaid, or just right?

Curious

Hi everyone,

I've heard different points of views from colleagues and now I want yours as well. Some say I'm way underpaid, a couple have said it's fair. All figures are in US Dollars.

Almost 2 years SAP consulting experience.... 5 years industry experience w/ companies that use SAP.... 1 full project lifecycle (and 1 half project lifecycle)....billed out at $140/hr.

Currently making 75k base + 15k bonus. Total of 90k.

Even though I like the firm I work for and love the people I work with, I'm getting contacted almost weekly by other firms willing to pay a bit more (although not as much long-term opportunity). Should I stay where I am or should I be more willing to listen to incoming offers and consider other options?

I need advice and your thoughts because I've been told more than not that I'm getting low balled and ripped off even though I didn't think that I was at first. Is it true?

Thanks!

Mars A Day to Curious (#1)

Curious you found your own answer - the opps which are being offered at (slightly) more lack the long term potential of where you are now - hence the slight uplift to sweeten the deal. Moving around too much will actually cost you in the medium term so unless what they are offering is a clear step forwards, or the role/company is in some way better for you, there is little real incentive. So I suspect you are not being underpaid by much if at all.
