I'm in my mid-40s and earning $325K/year through a mixture of salary, stock and bonus. I would encourage you to think about your career as rock-climbing rather than ladder-climbing. By that I mean not focusing on a grabbing a rung that is already occupied. Doing that could leave your career stalled if those rungs remained occupied for years or decades. Instead (or at least also) think about areas of potential growth that no one in the company is currently focused on. Large companies often overlook what are currently small opportunities, but could be large ones in 3-5 years. if you can find one of these, you become like a rock climber finding a new line, and are no longer limited by the position of other climbers.
