It's not accurate tho. I very simple google search shows the average household income from the 2015 census was just under $56k. Folks on this app and in this career tend to be incredibly out of touch with reality and just how the rest of the country lives. Like I said in my initial post, with a 4 yr degree and 2-3 yrs of experience, making $50-60k is right in the ball park. Location and industry will have an impact. In consulting, plan to be in the $80-90k range after 3 years (performance rating will also impact this) assuming you started in the low 70s.

Yea, you're wrong, I never used your metric as the basis for saying ppl are out of touch. I did say it's 15% higher, which can be a huge relief for many families. The folks I refer to when I say out of touch are the snobby BAs that get brought in at over $70k and still complain about being underpaid.

For the MAJORITY of the working population, 50-60k is good for a standard 4 yr degree after 2-3 yrs in the workforce. Don't become to out of touch with reality and lose sight of just how well you're paid compared to most ppl.

You're ahead of the curve as you probably know but felt the need to post anyway to show off. Push for 6-8% increase in a non promo year or switch firms to get a 15-20% bump. Now stfu
