How hard is it to get a salary of 150K from 100K? I started around 60K in HCOL and found offers around 80-110K within in 1-3 of experience. How long would it take on average to achieve a jump from 100K to 150K? Anyone have first or second hand experience?

MBA will probably be the fastest, but also includes the obvious time and expense

This is funny. I literally just left KPMG a few months back and went from 100K to 150K. Had 3.5 YOE when I left.

Just started new job with 140k base, 180k TC w/ 2 YOE from undergrad in HCOL, don’t think I’m terribly special

This makes me want to die 😭

I went from $85k to $147k by moving from a consumer bank to BCG. MBB is one of the few places that doesn’t care about what you are currently making, offers at the same level are all the same. I had an offer to move inside the bank, and when I asked for similar $ they said ok, then called me back 5 minutes later when they realized it would be such a big % jump they couldn’t possibly do it.

Military background, that’s why I got hosed on starting salary at the bank. I have an MBA though and an engineering degree.
There were a couple stops between BCG and EY. I like both places.

Depends on the city. SF is probably easiest followed by NY. LA is probably one of the hardest big cities to reach that, wages seem lower there

M7 MBA: give me $200K cash and I'll hook it up

I was about to get the 150k ish offers once I hit ~5 years exp
