From what I understand, Katelyn, starting salaries in federal service (say GS-7/9) are actually relatively competitive with many fields in the private and non-profit sectors. It’s after the first 3-5 years of service where many folks start to get stuck without possibility of promotion or pay increase (also commonly referred to as “plateauing,”) regardless of whether they’re high performers.
