Re: passion doesn't pay the bills
Interesting, I would tend to agree, the training and knowledge that we have amassed over the years, there needs to be a value put on this (monetarily). Individuals don't say anything when doctors charge such high fees for procedures and medical treatments. I am not sure why we are looked at any different.

passion doesn't pay the bills
"Yes, money matters"

In infosec, people are usually branded as "after money" and that "money doesn't matter as long as you are passionate". I'm glad to see some people don't shy away from the money issue

Some common thoughts
It is the same job everyday regarding common points of problems such as users opening phishing emails - will they EVER learn????   Some days battling an uphill boulder that never comes to rest.  It is a mentally stressful job with so much riding on keeping the walls up and threats down.  And new threats, new methods of attack make education a MUST in this field - threats from 2003 don't cut it.  Lack of management support is real, the C-Suite believes that if it ain't broke, it don't need to be protected hence no budget numbers.  No tools.  No rusults = frustrating job.  $$ are a problem - CIISP can earn six figure if in right spot and five figure does not do it.  One good thing - outsource is rare, it is hard to outsource to WiPro and Infosys as happens witht the data center and desktop staff.
