I graduated from undergrad in 2011, I hit 200k base salary in 2023. It took me 7 years in this sort of role though.

The trick is to find an area that you like, put in a few years to get experience and possibly get promoted, then jump ship and join another company for a big increase. Switching companies is usually the best way to get an increase, but having some industry knowledge before will help you (don’t jump ship too soon, they’ll be paying for your experience)!

NYC. In this country I’d say that the industry is mainly in NYC with satellites in San Francisco, Texas (Dallas?), & Chicago.

Abom makes a salary of 100-115k with 35% abo.I share eligible. BL2 makes base of 110-130 with 80% abo p share eligible. Bl3 similar to bl2 but 90% and p share.
Really the shares on that third payout year is when you bring it in. Some very successful branch leaders and market leaders are 500-700. I was shocked to find this out which made my decision to leave the regional center that much easier

I have two jobs in the same industry but a category that will never cross paths. 100% remote for both, I set my own scheduling so whe I go visit one distributor, it's never on the same day as the other, when my managers come and want to see the market or just review, I'm scheduling days off with the other, they're never out more than once a year. It's going on 5 years and both companys/territories have been up 10% every year.
145k with one and 137k with the other.
I'm always seeing some of the same customers and they don't have any issues as long as they're getting their products.
It's a full 40 hours and I rarely go over. In my industry it's never been a full 40 anyway, it's always been anywhere from 20 to 30 for one, so I decided, why not, I have the time.

I see people with 7-8 YOE getting ~50LPA at top companies, at the same time these same companies are paying the same package to 3-5 YOE for sde roles. Also in my experience, from what I have seen, it's much difficult to get into data science roles compared to sde roles in top companies.
So for a person just starting out in the industry, should one try to get into development roles instead of data science?
Maybe my understanding is wrong!

Curious what’s a fair salary in MA?

I’ve been with the company 8.5 years & am the only one in my role, which they can’t operate without. I execute tasks from two investment advisors and two financial planners - they make the decisions of what should happen & I make it happen.
