Looking into getting my first real watch (omega sea master/speedy). What should my base salary be before spending 4-5k on a watch? Making just under 80 and have been able to save quite a bit of my salary.

I don’t think you should look at your salary as justification to buy a luxury watch or not. As long as you are saving, don’t have much debt, why not treat yourself? Just don’t go crazy, be financially responsible.

There's no "right" answer on this one and it's probably different for all of us based on other hobbies (cars, travel, etc). So long as you have the money and aren't taking away from other necessities, go for it.

My rule of thumb is that it shouldn’t cost more than 1% of your net worth.

I’ve been more like 10% lol. Depends where you are in life

Just don’t get in debt for a watch. Other than that, but what you want! Tons of great options at that price point.

Hi fishes,

This annual appraisal I have got a good % of appraisal increment on my salary but I was not promoted to a senior developer (although I have been mentoring a junior dev in my team and been part of building the project by implementing new technologies and tweaks) and my total YoE is 3.5+ years. What could be the reasons? What should I do now?

Thanks in advance!!

Hey! I work in tech (4YOE) and I switched to consulting (will be joining in Sep). Background for the question: I have a bonus system with my current employer that consists of 6-12% of my base depending on performance (I always got the maximum 12%).

Question: do you think I can convince my current employer to pay me a prorated bonus since I will be leaving after working 7 months this year? They already told me (informally) that they do not do this. What arguments would you use?
