85K minimum, and at least saving 1.5k after all living expenses.

Figured by 85k you can make a decent 401k contribution, HYSA, contribution, cover rent, and utilities/bills.

Go for a Macan, Great car. 👍😊

The “golden rule” is that cars should be ~10% of your income yearly That being said, I know people making 100k with a 20k car saving 0 dollars, while I know someone making 65k with a 40k car saving 10k a year. It’s all about priorities I have around ~70k in cars on 130 income and can max out all my savings, so just be realistic about your other spending habits For a new macan, I think low 100’s is fine...depending on your other expenses

Honest question, why get a Porsche Macan? For the price range, I feel like there are better options in terms of quality/performance

Would you take the following offer: Base - ~$180K; Bonus - ~$30K; RSU - ~$15k; Total Comp - ~$225K; F500 firm, not tech, mid-west, individual contributor role with potential for senior roles in 2 years. Good WLB, but not the most interesting industry. Currently working at a T2 Strategy Consulting firm, 2.5 years out of a T10 MBA. $200K all in. 7 YoE. Happy with consulting so far and performing well, but would like better WLB. How much better are tech exit ops given SF cost of living?

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
