Are you paid enough?
I see it like this – a Business Analysis Career is a very well paid job considering the low level of stress we generally have day to day. I am not talking on behalf of ‘stress heads’ or business analysts who choose to work on super stressful projects with unrealistic expectations. I have worked on multiple different industry, size, local and global projects and I have NEVER had to deal with prolonged times of high stress. I am good at what I do, I am well regarded and always in demand, so it is not because I am a slacker or anything. The point here is: We generally get paid well for what we have to deliver.Another reason why this is a great profession!
So how well is well?
In Australia where I am currently based, I work as a Business Analysis Career contractor and know the current rates for a mid-senior business analyst ranges between a gross daily pay of AUD$650 – AUD$850. As a permanent employee working for a bank, I can expect to be paid between AUD$85K to AUD$135K per annum also depending on experience.
When I was working in London, UK the permanent employee Business Analysis roles were anything between GBP25K – GBP40K per annum. The gross contractor rates were approximately GBP250 to GBP400 per day depending once again on industry and experience.
The above salary ranges for Australia (Sydney & Melbourne) and the UK (London) are based on a pure Business Analyst role. You walk into the role with some subject matter experience but not a lot and you walk in with good pure Business Analysis experience.
As I have said before – these are my opinions and my experience.
