It sounds like you're an employee earning about $60,000/year with full
benefits. Not an outstanding amount, but not bad either. The fact
that your employer provides consulting services to other companies is
beside the point.

If you're an independent contractor accepting a job through an
agency/broker, 30%-40% off the top to the agency seems to be pretty
normal around here. If you're an employee, that's rather beside the
point - you accept a job paying so much a year.

I spent 10 months as a consultant at a major global pharmaceutical
company - in the marketing department. Not knowing what kind of
experience you have, I couldn't hazard much of a guess as to what your
salary should be. The normal way to determine what you're worth is to
shop around for another job and see what you're offered.
