A friend in cyber claims he’s making $600k a year?

I have a friend in cyber that was making $300k in 4 years as a consultant. He worked his way up. He worked about 60-100 hours a week. Now he’s making $600k working 50 hours a week. How is this possible!!?? BS?? He says it’s common & he knows people making more than that…

Are we talking USD?

Seems a little out there, but consultants really do get away with charging some lucrative contracts. Big companies tend to trust big industry names more than their own staff… Hourly wages are pretty uncommon too though so it still sounds shady. Junior executives often don’t make that at the pinnacle of their cybersecurity career.

Unless this is San Francisco rates, doesn’t sound right. Most mid-market CIOs don’t make that kind of money.

Either a he is a pathological liar or b he is like barney from How I Met Your Mother and is the fall guy for a corporation.
Does he wear suits EVERYDAY regardless of the situation?

Yes. Consultants get paid well when they have highly desirable skill sets.
