Depends a lot on location, $200k is lot less in SFO or NYC than anywhere else.

I’m 38 and my base is $180k w/20% bonus target. Gotta keep in mind as you move up the ranks, the variable component of compensation tends to increase.

C1, when you will be offered $200k+, you will define SFO in a better way...

So many righteous acting people in the thread. Question is valid, and most people are in consulting for money!!! Y’all here for impact???
