Why do some threads call a 27 year old making 500k a humble brag, where in every salary thread by 30 most people are well over 1mil? It seems by 8YOE you should be close to 1mil if you're on track?

Are you sure people are talking salary and not net worth…

28 and barely over $300k here... Must be lagging 🥲

Much easier than expected, actually. First client came to me through my existing network. It pays off to network in your firm and in the industry!

I joined Deloitte in 19’ and don’t buy into the circlejerk that seems to go on both for / against the company - I like being a part of the firm but am underwhelmed with where the recent compensation cycle resulted.
