Congratulations. Which city are you in? My wife and I make over 200K in base in a T1 city in California and feel it is so insufficient.

I think everyone here needs to chill, 200k for HHI in any city in the US is certainly above average. I truly think people need to take a step back and realize what the average American citizen has (which is already above what many globally have).

My spouse and I are 26 & 28 making 335k based combined and we feel like we are still far away from early retirement 🤷‍♂️

Oh yeah we’re far away, just on a good path and in a good spot considering our age. What is your cost of living?

250k in chicago and we don’t have children. Doesn’t feel like it’s that much haha. Not even thinking about early retirement 😅

I got promoted a few months ago with a small salary bump. I’m making within a normal sr. ad range, but I know I could be making more. Since then, I’ve taken on a lot more responsibility, and am effectively acting as at least an ACD level. Would it be wildly inappropriate to ask for more of a raise? I didn’t negotiate my raise with my promotion, which I realize I should have done.

Post-Covid, I just cannot seem to find the inspiration to network at a conference such as the AWS DC summit. I initially wanted to get facetime with vendors to check out potential job openings.
