What level do you think we should make over a $100k in a MCOL city. I think manager 1

A lot of S2s and S3s are breaking 100k now with bonus.


I hit $100k as a senior 2 in Houston in 2019. I was high compared to my colleagues, but not by much. I think $100k as a manager 1 is 100% reasonable this day and age, even in BTS. But I think $100k is it.


I think at S1 you should be close, and if not at S2 you should jump and get pair what your worth. I’m being promoted to S1 at Q3 and will be at 97k. I’m in a MCOL, average 1 bedroom apt is $1,700 and up.


I have a buddy that’s MCOL mid size firm tax manager cpa at $95k

Idk seems a tad low to me

Broke that as senior 2 in Texas

Yep. And my friend who is S3 is currently making 102k

Generally speaking, hitting the $100k mark in a midCOL city like that sounds like a solid goal for someone at the manager level. But again it can vary a lot depending on the company and the market.

Has anyone here gotten a verbal offer from Apple right before headcount happened for the year? Have been waiting longer than expected for my written offer after accepting verbally.
Recruiter and hiring manager have been very communicative, but I'm still quite nervous.

They still seem interested and are following up, but makes me uneasy
