How much do you have to make to be in the 1% in the US? Let's assume I'm 30.

Of the world? Prob like 30k.


Adjusted gross income of top 1% started at 465,626 in 2014 per irs


Fixed it :)

Hmm, then what’s this 250K number everyone keeps quoting?

Directed at Slalom1

Income or net worth?

Slalom 1 - I think you’re quoting NYC numbers

Ok, not sure anymore and now I feel poor! Thanks OP and Slalom1!!!!

Why do you ask OP?

You can google this - it’s available even per region what exactly the 1% line is


I think slalom was quoting household income

Yea I was looking for individual income, which might be harder

And I was asking for the usual reasons - how far off am I?? :)

It’s all about money I guess

Income percentile by age calculator above is what I use to "gauge" myself. It's kind of pointless to compare yourself to people in the peak of their career when you're in your twenties.

Looks like it was household income.....oh how cool it would be to find a SO that made consultant money

^^hell yeah it would

Please share opinions, Pro/Cons. Trying to decide between 3 opportunities, each are somewhat different roles but similar comps 1) Accenture Strategy - Tech Strategy 2) Deloitte - Customer & Mrkting


Can anyone provide salaries at each Consultant level with Accenture Strategy?


Without naming your country (or home state if you’re from ‘Murica), what is your country/home state famous for? I‘ll go first: Beer, Fries, Waffles


With how often consultants end sentences with “right”, anyone else get the urge to just start saying “yup you’re correct” every time and see if they get how annoying it is?


Speaking from your traveling experience (for work), which airport gives more delay? NYC or Bay Area?


How's the quality for wardrobe items from amazon essentials? Is it mostly cheap stuff from china with the amazon brand slapped on?
