I just reached 200k total comp. How long did it take for you to reach 300k total comp? Currently 32, and want to pay off 200k in student loans and have kids by my own. No partner.

9 k annual premium plus 6k oop. Then there are always no covered procedures, dental (because dental insurance sucks) I didn’t get into every little detail and I think this post went a little further than it should have. Also the 500 a month in clothing is averaged out for myself and kids. We easily spend 1k+ on shoes and sneakers people forget that kids outgrow clothing every 4-6 months.

Needs make more in nyc or the bay. I feel like 200 is the new 100 in tier 2 cities as well now.

Love all the jealousy on here...Not. People always dislike it when others have what they don't. Be happy for OP. He/she is doing great and should aspire for more as well. 👍

If you are in a tier 1 city, $200K is not a lot of money given those circumstances...

@Op congrats for many reasons. 1. Your total comp is excellent for your age. (32) 2. Your total comp is even more excellent being at Accenture. My understanding is you’d need to be an industry celebrity (SME, speak at conferences, support big revenue generation opps) to cross the 300k mark at that firm. 3. Your ambition is amazing (get out of debt, have kids on your own, be self made made and self sufficient...)

I see nothing wrong with this post. OP worked hard to earn this salary and looking at future options. Given mass debt load I think it’s smart OP is trying to plan for future.

At ACN 300k should be doable at SM depending on bonus in Strategy. In MC my total comp only got to mid 200s as SM, then MD was a pretty significant step up (much wider ranges at MD).

I’m talking about when I was at Accenture Strategy. S& bonuses can exceed 60% at the equivalent level of an Accenture SM.

This all depends on the city u live in honestly. I'm in the Midwest a manager and total is higher than that. Compared to someone at my level living in NY it is a BIG difference

$200K is decent comp and getting to 300K is a function of your yoe / current role / leadership. How many kids?

I feel that starting a business with your wife (or husband) is one of the most fulfilling things a couple can do. Is this strange? Expanded in comments.

If the couple doesn’t exist the gifts don’t divide.
