    Full time, working in risk consulting in a big 4 accounting firm and on 50K. Hours are long, pay is awful. Interesting work though.

    I used to work for big 4. Get out, you'll get paid so much more, even if you decide to go back the pay bump will absolutely be invaluable (literally and figuratively).

    That's my plan. I'm hoping to get out next year and move into government or industry. Considering the amount of work we do (and stress of ridiculous deadlines) the pay is unreasonable.

    I am a stay at home mum so earn nothing for the past 4 years.

    Before was a private nanny and earn about 45k a year and loved it/ had great hours and only worked about 4 days a week.

    Hubby is a Town Planner and works for local council he earns about $95k a year. He only works a 9 day fortnight so has every second Friday off.

    We think the money/ situation is great for us at the moment with a young family.

    I'm a laboratory technician. My base rate is $90k but because I do shift work it's $130k. I'm on a good wicket but I know it won't last.

    Default What do you do and how much do you earn?

    I work in marketing. My 1.0 FTE is $67k but I currently only work 0.6 FTE

    Eta just read your original post, I'm in a Uni too, so you must be the same level as me as we have the same pay.

    I actually think for what we do, we get paid pretty well, but in today's money, I really could earn more. I also don't enjoy my job but the flexibility coupled with my 300+ hours of sick leave, 230 hours of long service leave and 150 hours of annual leave more than makes up for the wage.

    Until 2 weeks ago I was a practice manager and bookkeeper in a small-medium law firm. I worked 4 days a week and earned $75k. Now I'll be a SAHM until (if) I decide I want to find something a couple of days a week. Don't want to go back to my old job due to travel time.

    Sorry being nosy. Is it in mining? $80k for 22hrs is pretty high rate for a scientist.
