What type of role? For SWE that’d be low. Non tech roles id say 125-140 sounds about right

It was 110 + up to 10% bonus

Agreed, 135K is on the higher side for a non tech role

For tech? I think you're actually undershooting. I got ~150 for 2 YOE (big tech). I've had friends at other tech companies (Series A startups) get around 170.

[Serious] Why do people who are otherwise smart and thoughtful make such illogical arguments when it comes to political/societal matters? Exhibit A: the people only citing the chance of death from covid for an INDIVIDUAL and when we’ve known since about week 2 in this pandemic that it’s the AGGREGATE deaths which we are worried about. I think/hope a lot of these people would never make such clueless statements at work so why is it acceptable when it comes to very serious societal matters?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.

On January 5th, I submitted a Consortium application to Berkeley, Tuck, Darden, Ross, Mccombs, and Anderson. Today I received my promotion from C to SC. I made SC at 3.5 years out of college at a boutique (Pariveda, Slalom, West Monroe) I made C 1 year out of college, but not sure if Adcoms will "notice" that, or just see me as a 3 YOE C. I feel a 3.5 YOE SC is a meaningful difference, but Stacy Blackman (robo email) says to not update adcoms. Thoughts?
