What’s the typical base salary for someone with 2.5 yoe in DC, no masters, non tech background?
So I started my first remote tech job. Up until this point I’ve been a field tech. But I’m curious about my salary vs what other people are making in similar roles. Is 60K/year for a TSE decent to start?

I currently work as an associate in an accounting firm. I am realizing the crazy attention to detail is killing me. I am looking a tech sales since I do spend a lot of time using program based software. Would tech sales require a crazy attention to detail?

Hi all can you evaluate my verbal offer
Title: SDE 3
Bonus: 16% (24k)
RSU: 25k/year for 3 years
Total comp: Not sure how to calculate rsu because it’s not actually 25k per year?? Have to double check with recruiter.
Also have a HM call set up sometime next week. Anyone know which team I should actively avoid? I don’t want to name the team in case I doxx myself.
Is there room to negotiate for a sign on / higher base? On paper it looks like 199TC
Can you guys flaunt your salaries and current roles+ organization.
This would inspire a lot of us to choose our paths for a good package.
Thanks in advance.

My therapist broke up with me 😢
Reading all these posts of “we as lawyers are making too much money and/or not paying enough taxes and whoever disagree are mouth-breathing idiots” makes me happy about leaving law 👋
Hi Fishes, I had multiple offers but I retained the same company even though the package is low compared to others. Now the problem is I'm not able to concentrate on the work. Before that I'm very good at completing the tasks.I'm not able to understand why I'm sitting idle not doing anything. Even I'm not thinking about anything. Just timepass. Did you ever face this situation?
Currently an M and a recruiter reached out for a Sr D position at a company with 4K employees. Am I psyching myself out or should I prepare like it’s any other interview? Even if I excel, am I setting myself up for failure with such a large progression?
Has anyone had their family ask them to front an expensive cost for them? If so, how did you feel about it and did you pay for the item? Recently my parents asked me to cover the dog’s upcoming surgery bill of $4000+. The dog belonged to me in college but has lived with them for 5+ years. I feel like this is a lot of money for me to pay and hope I get paid back. What would you do if you were in my shoes?

Trying to give a friend advice on his first “nice” watch. He’d like to keep around 1K and likes the clean style. He likes the Shinola Runwell and I’m trying to figure out other watches he should...
For the experts here who buy/change their own straps - any recommendations for a good 21mm lug width strap? I’m a newbie but from a quick search online it seems most strap widths are 18/20/22mm…
Saw this in the AD and caught my eye. New to Grand Seiko. Any thoughts on this manual spring drive? Will there be any discount for GS?
Searched the bowl and could not find a direct comparison. I have the opportunity to purchase a) Santos de Cartier Medium or b) Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36. Both white dials and SS. Tried them both on and am leaning towards Santos because it stood out a bit to me. Thoughts? FWIW, I only own a “mall brand” dress watch on a leather strap and am looking to upgrade.
24 and looking to buy an automatic or mechanical watch. Worth it to save for a luxury watch like a Rolex? Or better to buy a watch for sub $1k?
The watch I wore to my wedding, the Grand Seiko SBGW231, needs some more wrist time. To dress it down to the Google quarantine uniform (t-shirt, shorts, mocs), I ordered some suede straps. Vote for which one I should start with in the comments.

Buying a house and thinking of getting a nice wall clock for my office to be in the backdrop during calls. Any recs? Would it be super lame to get a Rolex Explorer wall clock? 😂
Published a few years ago but still an interesting read on the 31xx vs 32xx Rolex movements put out by the British Horological Institute. http://bhi.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/April-HJ-2018-Article-of-the-Month.pdf
After lurking and lusting for a couple of years.... Just bought the hesalite speedy pro. I'm in love. 😍 First entry into the luxury watch space too!
How often do you get your watches serviced? Do you follow the recommended interval and do you go through the manufacturer? Omega Chrono Diver if it matters.
Since the fall is now fully underway, I will begin wearing my tweed hacking jacket with the suede elbow patches (to the office—ugh). Hypothetically, what is an (the most) appropriate watch to compliment?
What do folks believe to be great watches to buy today strictly from an investment perspective?
Debating on Tudor BB58 Blue or Black, I’m leaning towards Blue as I don’t have a Blue watch, and have A few black watches such as Omega Speedmaster. Which to go with?

Luxury watches are veblen goods. The markups are insane, we’re talking 100%+ retail markup for stainless models, and much more for precious medal models. That $10,000 SS Rolex Submariner is sold to the dealer for $5,000 and costs Rolex probably $500 to make.
Unluckily for watch dealers, not all their watches sell out. When dealers get stuck with inventories of watches they will dump them on the grey market to resellers like Jomashop.
I agree that Rolex’s bill of materials for a Sub is probably less than $500. More than that if you factor in overhead.
They are a grey market dealer that often buy wholesale from across the world. Sometimes this does mean your warranty is only through Jomashop itself.
I’ve bought a few watches (and even some high-end fragrances) from Jomashop and never had any issues or concerns. Figure they can afford to take lower margins on account of the volume they do as a reputable online dealer.
You buy it…then they have to go steal it.
Bought a new speedy off Jomashop a couple of years ago. No issues here.
They are legit. But I don’t know that they’re that cheap—especially with Rolexes—these days.
