<--- Gainfully employed (and busy) as a Voice Network Engineer deploying Cisco AVVID solutions all over the country, with arguably the finest Cisco Partner in existance. I primarily implement Cisco ICM/IPCC Enterprise and IPCC Express call centers. When I'm not doing that, I'm setting up Call Manager and Unity servers.

I'll help in any way I can, but I'm not moving or quitting my gig. I can hook you up with our Cisco Practice VP, who I'm sure would be more than willing to send an army of our finest (including me) down south for projects.

Good luck!

Tempting.

I'm a MCSE: Security, Messaging (2000-2003), CCNA, CISSP, Security +, Certified Ethical Hacker.

I've done everything from architect AD-domains, including Exchange infrastructure, internet connectivity, firewalls, and server and desktop engineering/support.

Currently, I'm tasked as a Security consultant for a Fortune 25 company, performing risk assesments, risk mitigation and contingency planning.

What's the pay range? I'd need about $150 per hour (if a contractor), to consider leaving my current gig. FTE pay would need to range in the 200K range with bennefits.

ETA-Its not really a buffer overflow, but it will allow you to inject executable code into memory.

Funny, but my current employer doesn't think it's out of scope.

We're lucky if we make a job offer to one out of 1500 applicants.

Supply and demand. If you are looking for quality engineers, and need them immediately, you need to be willing to pay for it.

Well in his case, you would be a billable engineer performing work for other customers. If he paid you $200/hr, he would have to charge the customer AT LEAST $300/hr to make any money himself. Are you a consultant, or do you work in somebody's IT/MIS/IS department?

My work gets billed out at $175-$200/hr depending on the project. They don't pay me that, though. I mean Christ, at $200/hr and a 40 hour week, that's $32,000 a MONTH and $384,000 a year. I doubt that even the president of my company makes that kind of bread.

I'm a consultant. Most consultants on the team bill at nearly $200 per hour. I haven't looked at the government fillings in a couple of years, but as for the president of the company, I believe ours made somewhere in the neighborhood of 52 million after he cashed in some of his shares. His base salay is in the 12 million range.

All this talk about what CERTs someone has doesnt mean squat !!

Most are book smart, pass a one time kiss ass test but then cannot get in front of the customer,
their communications skills suck, they are not organized and dont follow up.

I hire guys that kick ass and show me so, anyone can fool you in an interview but does this guy get the job done and work effectively with a team and by himself.

You do get what you pay for.

Now a days since the bottom fell out these companies try to get over on the guys that get the job done !
They dont want to pay squat but want the best guys. They dont even call folks back because the good ol'
boy network is in play.

You can tell who are the best engineers, they dont put all their cert stats on their emails.
Read their resume on exactly what they did and ask them about it.

My 2 cents in this crazy world.

You aren't going to find many people out there who are going to pay you $150hr (300k+ per year!).

Technology is easy. I built secure networks for the military at a theater level (J-6) for 6 years, taught networking as an instructor and have done independant contracting from time to time. I work for a fortune 50 company and have built and designed corporate ATM AAL1-5 networks for voice and data (DS0-OC-12), FRF8 Frame to ATM, PEAP and LEAP based Wi-Fi deployments, VoIP networks using BCM and Call Manager, have unix sysadmin skills (DNS, sendmail, apache, perl, etc)built AD networks (a long time ago) and don't make half of what you are talking about. I'm at the top of the range for what I do....

Don't confuse bill-able rate with salary or hourly wages. I'm currently managing a Security Monitoring group, Incident Response and forensics.

Sounds like we do some of the same stuff. However, I do it for a Fortune 25 company.

My main tasks deal with security consulting for all IT infrastructure projects. This includes network, server/mainframe, as well as code level security. Due to our industry, we are mandated to perform risk assesments on EVERY project, and detail those risks in an executive summary which needs to be signed off by the appropriate parties.

As of right now, I'm doing a complete and overall evalution of the current desktop operating system deployment, wireless LAN implementation, Single sign-on authentication infrastructure that involves both Active Directory and LDAP components for internal and internet users, a re-evaluation of allowable file transfer protocols within the enterprise (everything from FTP to NDM and those that are even encapsulated within IPSEC or SSL tunnels) for confidential and restricted data, re-eval of the HIDS/NIDS implementation, and the real big project is a soup to nuts evaluation of a recent acquisition (Exchange/blackberry/IM/Paging/Sendmail/SMTP connectors, Active Directory, Telcom, Desktop, Physical security compliance, firewall implementation, extranet connectivity, encryption methodology and implementation, DNS, and a whole bunch of other crap).

As I said before, most people in my group bill out at around $200 per hour. I've been here for nearly 7 years, as well as doing consulting on the side. You may not find the pay on par with what you have seen, and I may just be fortunate. However, I've paid my dues over time, and I'm not going to take a job that pays less than what I make now.

So, considering my experience and skill set, current pay range, and the fact that I happen to already live in one of the aforementioned locations of interest, I examined what it would take to make me leave what I'm doing currently. If he can't, or doesn't want, to pay that. I'm fine with that.
