Need more details, What’s the role?

Tech lead

Tech lead for their trading systems? I will say the comp in the investing industry is always higher but so is the stress and expectation to always be online and plugged in

Investment tech has literally no tolerance of error, data needs to be 100% accurate, very stressful.

Genuinely curious why you don’t go FAANG at 14 YOE? L6/L7 at Google would net you 2-3x that comp

Firm is giving an extra bonus this year. After taxes theyll be just about the amount of interest on my law school loans (so much interest it’s disgusting). Do I immediately use all of it to pay off that interest, pay off one of the loans in full and put the rest toward interest, invest some, or other? I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!

Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
