It would also be cool if people posted their real income and their income adjusted for cost of living in a specific city. I see a ton of 6 figure or near 6 figure incomes. There is a huge difference between 100k in San Fran and 100k in Des Moines, Iowa IMO.

Or make everything based on San Fransisco.  For me to go to San Fransisco requires that I have a salary of about $175k based on what I make now (in Iowa) :-)

It's more fun to go that way for us LCoL folks.

Woah! I just ran the numbers based on bestplaces.net COLA calc. No wonder why Quora has questions like "Is 120K enough to live on in San Fran?"

This is hilarious.

Commenting to follow.

I'm a middle manager at a bookstore and am making $42,000 + bonuses based upon the store's performance.

I'm not at all satisfied with this level of pay considering that I have a BA in English Lit and a Master's of Library and Information Studies. This thread is inspirational! Thanks!

And you just jumped from 90k to 280k for job #4? Teach me your secrets.

Haha, that part might be a less interesting than you think. By the end of job 3 I was in a "senior-level" position, but it was at a small company in Boston that couldn't afford to pay market rates (which I think would have been around $120k for that city). The new position is at a giant company in Silicon Valley that can, and chooses to, pay above market rates.

Sounds like Netflix.

I got $146k, but it's probably more than that because I'm underpaid.  $146k is actually probably where i should be, so in San Fran that's a bit more, 30% higher I think.

Cop 50k (about to get a 20-30% raise), excellent benefits, early retirement. No degree besides police academy (most Officers have a degree these days, I'm an exception). Our pay varies wildly throughout the country. My Sgt. made well over 100k in NYC; some  police in rural areas only make mid 20's to low 30's.

I was at $48k + OT when I left NH in 2011. I was looking at TN in ~2006...$28k. Nope...

Job Title: Whatever made up term the company came up with to make it seem like I matter
Salary: Enough to pay rent, $1,250 a month extra on debt and still feel like I'm going nowhere

Since I no longer work, I'll go ahead and post my husband's information (with enough vagueness to assure anonymity).

Job Title: Full Professor/Department Chair in a STEM field at a large, public university
Experience: About 25 years in field
Age: Late 50s
Education: PhD from a top program
Salary (including base pay, retirement matching program,  travel reimbursements from grants; outside consulting & speaker fees): $240,000-$245,000/year.


I ran the salary through the CNN cost of living calculator. This income supports a lifestyle that $545,000/year would support in Manhattan. This is totally theoretical though because from what I've heard professors living in major metropolitan areas are rarely compensated at rates that make up for huge differences in COL. I'm glad we're living where we are!

Yeah it's crazy how different the pay is in different parts of the country. My Sgt. has a FAT pension from NYC, bought a $650k house here when he came down; on the flip side, I know guys out in the sticks that barely make $30k.

Supportive Living Supervisor- Averages to $15+ per hr (wages + my own income streams). Or $28,850 per year. Paid .54 cents mile to drive to work,not factored in. I live in California

Two 18 hr shifts per week.8 hrs of each 18 hr shift is paid sleep time. Midweek. 20 hrs paid by the County, 17 paid by a Vendor of the State= 37 hrs per wk + my own income streams worked while on the clock. I also make $150-$100 a month selling on Craigslist but havenít done it long enough to rely upon that as regular income to factor in. Shop for items to sell online while on the clock. Job Pays me to drive to work and paid to shop at nearby thrift stores (with my client). Wage + .54 cents per mile. Paid to sleep 8 hrs of my 18 hr shifts, not factored into the wage above.

Excellent Medical & Dental Benefits, Some Life insurance & D&D
Doc visits-$5 co-pays/$15 Specialist
 $50 ER visits up to 4 days per yr then no cost.
$5 generic/ $15 brand name drugs. $10 X rays. $25 Cat Scans/MRI etc..
NO DEDUCTIBLE PLAN.
DENTAL- Free Cleanings and X rays. No co pays or deductibles. Everything free except orthodontics where they pay $500 towards braces

-50,00 Life Insurance+ 50,000 AD&D up front then 50% of wages paid until ages 65 if disabled.

Other Perks while on the clock-

-Paid to sleep 8 hrs of each shift (or surf online).
-Showering at work while on the clock in private bath. Blowdrying my hair. Two hours a week saved from doing it at home right after shift.
-Washing one set of clothes in bathtub(worn at the prior shift) hanging to dry then fold in the morning. Less laundry to do at home.
-Exercise each shift. Run pretty hard for 30 min of each shift. Not much but helps my cycling.  Run alongside my Client who cycles (on the level road) for 30-40 min of each shift.
-Plenty of time to eat healthy while on the clock-Juice my organic veggies and such.
-Paid .54 cents a mile to drive to work (one way) each week (an extra $125-$150 re-imbursement check per month)
-Twice as many paid sick days than Calif law requires

Potential Advancement- They've offered me a better job a few times. A higher up Supervisor Position but it requires working 4 more hrs per week +being on call at least 1, sometimes 2 two days per week. Includes better Life Insurance + other little perks. I'd only make $10,000 more per year. Not worth it. So this arrangement works fine. We live in Northern California

Holy shit, I could be making $241,274 in San Fran. Thanks for the COLA comparison link (http://www.bestplaces.net/cost-of-living/)!

That one is crazy compared to the CNN calculator.

CNN says I should be at $196k in San Fran
Best Places says I should be at $292k in San Fran.

One of them is likely a bit off.

^ Ha! Thanks for CNN comparison, http://money.cnn.com/calculator/pf/cost-of-living/index.html. Yes, I can now temper my reaction a bit since San Fran is only $160k compared to the insane $241k at Best places COL.

I feel very blessed to make what I do (and I'm not close to some folks my age or younger here, either).

Even more blessed to be smart enough to not be immediately parted with what I make, too! :-)

Salary: $76k + 4-10% bonus
B.A. in Psychology, up to about 4 years experience now

To those talking about COL adjustments, I think most places drastically overstate them, particularly for Mustachians. I spent ~$18,000 living in NYC last year, on pace to spend about $15,000 this year. How could I possibly be saving much more by living in St. Louis?

It is fairly easy to eliminate most of the COL difference if you really want to. So I would advocate not adjusting for COL on a forum like this. Someone making $100,000 in a HCOL area has the opportunity to save much more than than another person making $60,000 in a LCOL area.

Title: Front Desk Jockey
Total Compensation: Around $61k
Years of Experience: Several
Training/Education: OTJ is all that is necessary, however a BA was 'highly desired'. I happened to have one.

I have one of the easiest jobs for the money in the world. Some days I just sit here like '...really? They are happily shelling out $61k a year for this?".

Damn, how lucky! But what part of the country?

This is by far the highest paying job I've ever had, and I get great benefits and bonuses on top of my base. However, I'm hoping to explore options and find a new career path eventually as I'm getting very bored with this. I'm not sure what I could do from here, but I do want to make over $50K.

Title: Property Administrator (administrative assistant-like job in commercial property management)
Years in: 6
Age: 33
Education: Bachelor of Arts - English
Salary: $40,000

This is by far the highest paying job I've ever had, and I get great benefits and bonuses on top of my base. However, I'm hoping to explore options and find a new career path eventually as I'm getting very bored with this. I'm not sure what I could do from here, but I do want to make over $50K.

I work for a national general contractor. We have project admins that process all the submitals, drawings, reporting, supply ordering, etc. They are paid $20-$35/hr. A few have gotten a masters in Construction Management and moved up into the technical ranks.

It would also be cool if people posted their real income and their income adjusted for cost of living in a specific city. I see a ton of 6 figure or near 6 figure incomes. There is a huge difference between 100k in San Fran and 100k in Des Moines, Iowa IMO.

Or make everything based on San Fransisco.  For me to go to San Fransisco requires that I have a salary of about $175k based on what I make now (in Iowa) :-)

It's more fun to go that way for us LCoL folks.

Woah! I just ran the numbers based on bestplaces.net COLA calc. No wonder why Quora has questions like "Is 120K enough to live on in San Fran?"

Using... http://money.cnn.com/calculator/pf/cost-of-living/

I make 160 to 200 a year as a .NET consultant in MN, apparently I need OVER $300,000 to go to SAN FRAN

Amazing...

Title:  Vice President of Finance
Experience: 25 years
Education: Undergrad in Finance + MBA
Location: Chicago
Base Salary: $160K
Car Allowance: $8.4K
Target Bonus: $40K (it can be more or less than $40K based on company performance)

Ballpark of annual revenue of the company?  I am assuming less than 500M annual at the above comp for VP finance.  Is there a CFO as well or are you as high as it gets on the Finance side?

Awesome work life balance though, you hit the jackpot there :)

That's cool, but I'd honestly like to do something less administrative as a different career. I would probably fit better in a teaching or creative career, but not sure how to break into that without amassing student debt or having to deal with the state education systems.

My Job Title: SSD Firmware Engineer
Experience: 1 year
Education: BS in Computer Science
Salary: 72k + ~10% bonus + $750 HSA contribution + 2.5% 401k match + whatever ESPP ends up being worth

Cost of living from this chart is 99.2/100, so very average cost of living area.

Started at 71k, got a raise a couple months in as a thanks for being awesome ;)

My manager says I will be getting a promotion in the next round (February) even though it typically takes 3-4 years. Should come with about a 10% raise.

The work environment is awesome. Really laid back and supportive. Take as much vacation as you want policy with no keeping track of work, sick, and vacation hours, etc. I would have to get a super big raise to consider working elsewhere.

DW Job Title: RN
Salary: ~70k + small pension + 2% 403b match
Experience: 5 years
Education: BS in Dietetics, BS in Nursing

She started out getting a degree in dietetics but that didn't work out due to requiring an internship to get certified and there not being enough to go around (something that if she had known me prior to starting the program she would have thoroughly looked into and chosen something different or studied harder). Went back after the Dietetics degree and did an accelerated BSN program and now is very happy.

Updating because I just got a promotion and a 15% raise!!!!

My Job Title: Senior SSD Firmware Engineer
Experience: 1.5 years
Education: BS in Computer Science
Salary: $83,000 + 10% bonus target + $750 HSA contribution + 3% 401k match + whatever ESPP ends up being worth
San Francisco Salary: $198,578 (my city is 101.4 on CoL Index)

Cop 50k (about to get a 20-30% raise), excellent benefits, early retirement. No degree besides police academy (most Officers have a degree these days, I'm an exception). Our pay varies wildly throughout the country. My Sgt. made well over 100k in NYC; some  police in rural areas only make mid 20's to low 30's.

I was at $48k + OT when I left NH in 2011. I was looking at TN in ~2006...$28k. Nope...


Yeah it's crazy how different the pay is in different parts of the country. My Sgt. has a FAT pension from NYC, bought a $650k house here when he came down; on the flip side, I know guys out in the sticks that barely make $30k.

How much time did y'all have on?
Me:
Job title: police officer
Age: 31
Time on: 9 years
Pay: 85k ish with ball park 8 hours per week overtime.
Location: Texas, super low cost of living.
Education requirements:  45 college credits or military experience I believe.
Extra pay for: masters degree/ bachelors degree, bilingual.
Perks: 55% pension at 25 years

I started part time in December 2006, full time in September 2007, and left in October 2011 - 4yr 10mo total, just over 4 years full time.

It was fun and I have no regrets, but I am really enjoying having nights and weekends off now. Stay safe!

Yeah the nights and weekends suck sometimes. I've been on 10 years; did corporate asset protection work for 11 years before that (actually liked it better than police work). Man you guy in Texas get paid well; I've talked to a couple of Texas LEO's, and they all were paid well.


Update: Got a promotion

Police Sergeant
60k+
10 years service
41yo
Some college, lots of in-service training
Location, central NC
My COL is almost nothing, house paid for, no debt.
