How much do you save of your salary or do you only save your bonus? Don't feel like I live that extravagantly and my analyst salary is fully drained every month.

I save half of my paycheck every month. I divide that into two: half of that goes to a high yield savings and the other half my regular savings

I save my bonus of none of my salary

15% to 401k and another15% split between personal investment account and savings account. 100% of bonus goes to savings.

I would still save 10-15% in 401K and try to save at least $1000 a month in a HY savings

Also save your bonus

I spend ~3k per month and save the rest. Getting a good deal on rent is prob the biggest driver. Don't get suckered into those deals with 1 month free!

Oh yes I save 15% on 401K also

Yes I used to use GE Capital but they were just acquired by Goldman so I'm with Ally now

Wait wait. Assuming $85k base and 32% tax total, that leaves you with $4816 a month. 50% gone to savings, you guys live on $2416 a month? That's pretty damn impressive considering rent is like 75% of thar

*$2408

How can you assume $85k base? 😂😂😂 so random but no

Oh sorry sometimes I feel like everyone here is an IBD analyst haha. Your breakout makes much more sense on a high salary. How do you recommend the breakout for what I described?

Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC. Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft

We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?

Hello! I have an inital call with HR coming up for a non-technical program manager role and I’m anticipating the expected total comp question.

In my offer letter it stated a signing bonus to be paid on the first available payroll after my start date. Its been a month since my first paycheck and HR and the Payroll team are incredibly unresponsive to my inquiry on where this bonus is. What’s the next course of action? Legal? I’m not at ACN anymore so not looking for ACN-specific advice.
