A lot of convo on here stems around jumping around for salary. What is something that would inspire you to stay at your firm outside of comp?

This year I finally reached a 6-figure salary, and I'm 25 years old. I've already spent 2 years at a FANG company. When talking to my mom about my career, she told me $100k isn't THAT much money(cont)

Just got laid off. Client asked me to start a LLC and she will pay me directly. Project is 2.5x my base salary. Seems like no brainer? What am I missing?

24 with a salary of 74k, but expecting to make $600k this year off a successful investment. Thinking I could keep working until 30 then call it quits, or should I leave firm this year and “retire”??

What was your salary when you first made a "luxury splurge"? Getting paid 95k but finding it hard to justify items like a Canada Goose coat or a Rimowa suitcase.

Got a bonus that I wasn’t expecting or planning for. I’ll save the majority, but want to treat myself a little. What’s something you’ve done with a bonus purely for your frivolous enjoyment?

How wrong is it to have signed an offer but later withdraw before started and go to another firm? I got a late offer with much better salary and industry but feeling bad for terminating the first.
