Because NYC is an expensive city and saving can be a struggle here

EY1, we all know that the salary difference between tiered cities hardly accounts for the variance in the cost of living. Stop being annoying

If you can't save atleast 35-40% of your salary in NYC, then you're being underpaid for NYC living standards. Oh wait I forgot every big 4 underpays in NYC 🙃

EY1. How much do you save and which city do you live in?

PwC1, do you live in New York?

@OP: how does it matter if someone lives in NYC or not?

40-50%

@OP. Your salary is dependant on the city that you work in. Also in your question you asked percentage and not the amount. So it should be irrelevant of the city

35%??? Not a chance in NYC

No, I don’t live in NYC

Ah okay. What is your salary and how much do you spend on rent if you don’t mind sharing?

7.6k a month, live in a studio in Chicago for 1k

7.6 gross?

I moved out from New York to Atlanta. Got my salary bumped by 9% while staying at the same level. And now I save about 40% of my salary with a bigger apartment and better standard of living

OP, yeap 7.6k gross

Wow A1, I bet you save a lot then?

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
