You do realize 300k is always reasonable lol

Yeah, 9 YOE means you’re around 30-31. More than reasonable lol

Does it though? Do people count their grad school as YOE?

If this is pre-IPO isn’t the real question about equity?

OP, what’s your level at BCG ? At a consultant / early PL level that’s a great exit, at principal you can definitely get 500 to 600k in big tech

Looking for some advice. I made 150k on GME but then lost 100k in the hype. Despite coming out net positive I feel like an idiot for being where I started after gaining so much. I recognize I broke a lot of my trading rules and I essentially was trading on emotion which lead to my loss. If it matters my portfolio is about 80k and I make about the same in salary. So this was the most money I’ve ever handled or even traded. Advice?
