Yes. Midwest is cheap AF. Staff II in NYC barely crack $70K in a much higher COL area.

Yes. Staff II in the large Texas cities make less than that.

Absolutely. When I was a staff 2 I lived in Boston and made 59...this was not too long ago either

like

No

Yes

@EY3, I'm a Staff II in a major Texas city and make $67k

^Well Dallas and Houston are likely both much higher COL than Midwest (non-Chicago)

Making 65 in LA so yeah...

Yes

@EY1 - you must be a non-campus hire or some other exception applies because they give campus hires a lot less and the maximum raise that staff 1s got this year does not even bring them to 60k.

Hey lovely women! I’m reviewing an offer, and I’m not really familiar how proration & bonuses work.

If on the offer it states,

$20,000 performance bonus (calendar year; prorated)

$10,000 end of year bonus (calendar year; prorated)

What does this mean for me if I potentially join on July 1st? Will it be adjusted to only the time I’m in the company, i.e. year-end bonus becomes half? 😊 Or? And the calendar year means I get the year-end on December and not my one-year mark, right?

TIA!
