My dad showed me his offer from 1998 from 'Coopers and Lybrand' (now PWC) for an SAP Consultant position. 100k + 5k bonus. I received the same number this year for 'Salesforce'. Like father like son?

Just catching up on this thread. Seems like A2 may have injected race to a discussion where it wasn't previously present but why does everyone have to demean him for speaking his mind? Thought we were all professional enough to take higher ground on a position with which we disagree, but maybe I'm in the minority here.

Post must be deleted now? A2 we all wish we got paid more (especially as minorities) but we've got be careful on yelling wolf as it can polarize us. To all, please just try to be cognizant of someone's background that is different than your own ☮️

PWC1, on the contrary, it's just mind baffling that salaries haven't changed that much. I saw the written offer from 1998. With food prices and house prices going up, it's just scary that these companies have kept salaries the same

We used to be proud of success. Now we act like coming from a family of success is a crime. Which begs the question, why even try to be successful if all you're going to do is damn your children to a lifetime of listening to petty, jealous bitches? You also don't know OPs circumstances. Perhaps his dad came from nothing and worked his ass off against the system and succeeded. That's the story you should be proud of but instead you chastise OP for it. Idiocy.

A2 - my Dad came from Pakistan. He worked 3 jobs during undergrad including full time at McDonalds and full time at a gas station. He changed universities 3-4 times (back and forth between community college and regular 4 year schools).

Not sure how that makes him privileged. It just means he wasn't lazy.

100k 20 years ago a shit load more than 100k today. Sounds like Daddy is better than you

A2 you privileged snot. Who are you to sit on your smart phone and whine about your circumstance? It's offensive to those who work hard and to your own parentage. All we can do is move forward trying to better our lives and the lives of those around us. You're not entitled to anything beyond your own life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. If I give my children a gift through my hard work, it doesn't mean your children or anyone else has the right to it as well.

Lol my family is in businesses and they always try to gaslight me into joining the family businesses because they’re getting old and want me to take over and get married and live close to the rest of the family because it’s “tradition” but they want me to get into business myself with no assistance and their method of convincing me is saying that I’ll make more money in business and only make “100k salary” for the rest of my life in consulting😂
