Job: Customer Service Rep
Age: 28
Less than 1 year in this job
~ $35K, plus benefits and matching 401k

No degree (hoping to finish up this year once tuition benefits kick in), but I have lots of customer service experience. Hoping to move into a new role in my organization after a year or so in this role so that I can make/save more.

Title: Pharmaceutical Fluid Bed Operator
Age: 29
Experience: 5 years
Education: BS in Biology/Chemistry (Job requires only HS Diploma =P)
Salary: $68,000 Base (*80k-100k typically with OT)
401k match: Flat rate of $4490 (~6.6% of base salary)
Vacation: 160 Hours Paid
Work Hours/Week: 36  (Weekend shift though so not all ice cream and rainbows)

Sad thing is I get paid more than Chemists/R&D/Supervisors at the company or I would leave the union and take one of those jobs.  Glad I didn't go to pharmacy school and take on the $160k of school tuition debt + living expenses for 4 years.

Title: Pathology Resident
Age: 30
Experience: 5 (PGY5 in the jargon)
Education: MD
Salary: $61,800 Base ($500 BS bonus, contract disallows outside gigs for the most part), good health insurance
401k match: Ha!
Vacation: 15 days
Work Hours/Week: 60ish Plus occasional at home call (reasonable for a resident)
Current City: Denver

Next year I will be a "fellow" in NYC with ~$82-85K salary.  After training salary depends on type of practice (academic, private practice or industry) and desirability of city (you can make 2-3x in places that docs don't want to live).  Ballpark first year salary in my ultimate field (Molecular Genetic Pathology/Clinical Informatics) is $200,000-$250,000 in a major city outside of the South and Midwest.  Depending on partnership/academic structure, 3-6 years in, one can probably expect $225,000-$350,000 but it is widely variable, that range probably captures 1.5 SDs (assuming mediocristan). 

As you might imagine, this field (like all of medicine) puts one way behind in savings, because one does not start saving in earnest until 28-35 years old.  Most people, like myself, have $100,000-300,000 in medical school debt at graduation that grows during residency because salary is not sufficient in higher COL cities to even pay down interest on this debt (6+% interest is the norm).

Fortunately, the end game salary more than makes up for the years of poor pay and what some would consider being overworked during residency.  The trick is realizing one is not rich when you are 32 years old with $300K education debt and minimal retirement savings. This is where most fail. :)

I don't want to burst your bubble. I really don't.

So I won't and will just say, I hope you make more than $225k and work a normal workweek when you graduate into your non-residency!

Title: Pharmaceutical Fluid Bed Operator

What does this mean? I'm imagining a water bed with a bunch of prescription bottles thrown on it, but that's probably not right.

My San Francisco salary would be around $115k.  With out getting specific, I work in IT, get a very generous 28 days of vacation a year and 3-3.5% profit sharing 401k.

It's actually air, although there is usually solution involved with the drug either dissolved in it (aqueous, alcohol, and acetone based)or already present in the powder itself. 

"Fluid" just comes from the fact that the air in the chamber keeps the powder or beads we are coating with the drug suspended in the air in a fluid manner, so that they get coated as evenly as possible with the drug solutions.

They do the same process in many different fields.  For example, cereal plants also use fluid beds to put sugar-based coatings on their products

Pathology is much more a standard work week than say a surgeon, although occasional call is part of the bargain.  Believe me I know that medicine is not a lifestyle profession in any sense of the word. I hope that I continue to find the work gratifying in whatever situation I find myself in.  If I wanted a truly 9-5 kind of job it would probably be available (and pay more) but part of the draw of being a physician is to directly have an influence in patients' lives.  For me Mustachianism is a way to create freedom from money so that it does not matter what I am paid, I will be able to do something that is gratifying. I also want to be able to quit the moment that it is no longer worth it to me.

 I feel sorry for people spending 20 nights per month in the hospital and not seeing their children grow up because they need the 9k sq ft house, boat, BMW SUV, etc.  That is when medicine will make one want to shoot oneself and they not uncommonly do --->> https://afsp.org/our-work/education/physician-medical-student-depression-suicide-prevention/

Title: IT architect @45 yrs
salary $160K with bonus. employer 10% match to 401K
wifey about the same....

savings sucked compared to pay...usual sins of keeping up with joneses and horrible money management. IF we keep our jobs, looking @55 to RE with kids educated/married/out.

It will take a mindset shift but with frugal life...but I can FI next year.

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)

Added - I am at the office 40 hours per week, but I only put in about 7 hours of actual work per week.  That is not  a joke.

What do you do during the other 33 hours?
I 1) am on the internet messing around, 2) going to a park for a walk for exercise when it is not too hot out, or 3) running errands (going to Walgreens, Costco, Walmart, etc).    Not kidding.

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 :)
You are good.  $100 million in sales (but we are really, really, really profitable).  We are owned by another company, the CFO of that company is the only person with the CFO title.  The people in charge of finance for the companies at my level have the title VP of Finance.

At least you guys are only half as likely to kill yourselves as the veterinarians ;)

And, to that end, here's my recent update:

Title: Associate Veterinarian
Age: 37
Experience: 10 yrs
Education: DVM
Salary: $80,500  (down from $92,000 three months ago)
401k match: 3%
Vacation: 20 days
Work Hours/Week: 30-32 hrs/wk (down from 38-40 hrs/wk three months ago)
Current city: LCOL area in the South

Yep, I took a pay cut in exchange for an hours cut. Best decision that I've ever made.... I no longer hate work as much, still get benefits, AND have more time for my side gig (which pays significantly more per hour than my veterinary work). Life has been immeasurably better for the last few months.

Title: Freelance Veterinary/Medical Writer
Age: 37
Experience: 1 yr
Education: DVM
Salary: $15k since Aug 2015. Hoping to hit a 2016 income of $25k, but we'll see.
401k match: none
Vacation: as much as I want, unpaid
Work Hours/Week: 0-15 hrs/wk

don't forget to compare your salary based on your SF salary.

blackjack could be located there, in which case your "only $5k less" in a perhaps lower cost of living area could end up being 2x what blackjack makes there.

It ranges from 45-50hours per week and usually 55hours during holiday season.

My SF salary would be $167000; Which doesn't really mean much because UPS drivers get paid the same everywhere.

Title: English teacher (lessons, not in a school environment)
Salary: between $30 and $50/hour, not including prep time, which is minimal
Education: Bachelor of English, though it isn't required
Experience: None when I started, and I was making the same amount
 
I'm in the greater, greater Tokyo area, so it's pretty expensive, but I think may pay is pretty much amazing regardless.

In most of my classes, I literally just sit and chat with people, and then they pay me.  Last week, I was talking about wanting a dog, and I mentioned I want one that doesn't shed. They didn't know the word, so I wrote it on the board and explained what it meant, then let them know that as a noun is also refers to a small outbuilding. That's pretty much how classes work.  Just talking and teaching as things come up.  There are definitely lower paying classes, but I don't usually take them.  I also prefer the adult classes because they require less work than the kids classes and are more fun for me. 

Commute time can suck.  I only take the "closer" classes, but 10 miles can easily take 45-60 minutes.  I have no paid time off, but it's pretty easy to skip an occasional class and get a sub.  It does take a while to build a stable of classes.  Last time I moved to Japan, it took about a year to get up to about 15 hours of class, and that's about where I stopped, but I could easily have worked more if I'd been willing to sell more of me time.  (I refused to work Friday afternoons or weekends, for example.) I do have the advantage of being here due to my husband's military service, which allows me to actually be here, and happens to be an environment where there are many teachers and they leave every 2-3 years and typically name their own replacements.

Profession: Freelance embedded firmware engineer (I also do some higher level stuff like Python)

Pay: I usually get paid an hourly or day rate. The current range is around £50 to £65 per hour.

Education: Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Computer Engineering

Experience: 5 years in my current industry. Over 10 years in technology/programming.

I live in the UK and am currently only doing work for clients in this country. I work about 40% of full-time (by design) and have decided to stick to this working pattern rather than shooting for full FI in 10 years.
You don't need to be FI to have autonomy!

Wow, that's great. I've toyed with the idea of one day teaching English in Korea. I think the cost of living there might be cheaper, but not sure how the pay compares.

Title - VP in commercial/trading function at a major retailer
Comp - £325k average of the past 3 years.. Whatever that is in $ right this minute. Thats base, bonus, exec comp, stocks. Thats in London, so assuming its fairly similar to SF COL
Experience - 12years
Age - mid 30s

I started my career in finance and transitioned to retail 5 years ago. Fantastic job. Low stress despite leading a team of ~150 ppl in a trading function. Hours could be 9-5/6, but i probably put in 8-6 as i really love what I do. Company culture is great and focused on team and personal development.

Age: 29
Position: Business Development/Sales
Location: Mid-Atlantic
Industrial Hardware Products - technology
Experience: 6 years as a salesman, 1 year in current field
4 year business degree (scholarship athlete)
Salary: $62K plus 6% commission of gross profit of sale (Expect FY 2016 to gross $65-70K and 2017 to gross $70-80K)  Products require extremely long sales cycles.
Benefits and 401K with 4% match, small company so lots of flexibility with hours, 3 weeks of vacation.

I love working with people, I like our products and the company but the up and down life of sales does get frustrating and depressing.  However, I do enjoy the concept of: if I want to earn more, I can do it by working harder/longer than others - theoretically speaking!

Only debt is 25 years left on starter house mortgage.

Woo, December raise added $2K+ to my total.... almost $82K now on the base job, and a whopping 1% raise on #2... lulz
Another raise that I didn't even see coming! Now $84k.
I am not a cog. I am an organizational lubricant.

Title: Admin Assistant
Experience: 2 years
Salary: $42k
Age: 24
Education: BA, studied international studies and art history

Basically I don't know what I want to do with my life, had a hard time finding a job after graduation, and freaked out and accepted the first job I was offered because rent in this HCOL area doesn't care if you're unemployed or not and my paltry savings were reaching a dangerously low level. Two years on I've moved to a less crappy admin job at a much better company, but I'm still facing the non-profit trade-off of great benefits, not so great pay, as well as the fact that I'm very over the admin thing and want to actually DO something. So my first priority is to cut down unnecessary spending/ramp up the savings rate and from there figure out how to make more money and/or not be so damn bored at work.

Title: Clinical Nurse II (that is, not a new grad, but no admin responsibilities)
Salary: ~$75,000 with shift differential & some (always voluntary, @ time-and-a-half pay) overtime
Age: 28
Experience: 2 years
Education: unused BS in Biology (4 years), BS in Nursing (another 13 months)

I LOVE my job. When I'm home, I'm 100% home. I work nights, self-scheduled 3 days/week, so bullshit is an minimum, and I can really take time to care for my critically ill patients. It's amazing to work with my hands, and my brain, and see people come back from mostly dead. My clothes are always comfortable and my co-workers are amazing, funny, caring people for the most part.

It has downsides, of course. There's lots of bodily fluids involved. People die on a semi-regular basis. And I sometimes don't have time to eat or pee in a 13+ hour shift. But really, it's pretty much awesome.


Spouse:
Title: Engineer 7b-PYT (I kid, but it really is something ridiculous like this, as the company has tons of levels)
Salary: $113,000 + bonus ($10k or so?)
Age: 30
Experience: 6 years
Education: BS in Physics (4 years), plus some specific industry certs earned along the way

Midwife with 9 years experience
age 36
~100K +benefits
4 year university degree

Just started part time in January (= 3.5 days a week) for about 60K/year since the hours and stress are such that I just wanted to kill myself. Still want to quit but think I can last a few years doing this before I throw in the towel altogether. Everyone romanticizes this job, but it isn't an easy one... that's why they have to pay me to do it!!

What is your university degree? How do you start in this profession?

Title: GIS Analyst
Salary: 70k
Experience: 2.5 years
Education: MS in Geodesy (look it up). Need to have MS in Geography, Math, CS, or related field + little experience (mine was my thesis, essentially). Some here are hired with a BS and a few years related experience.

Most of my work is just data processing; I don't actually do much analyzing. I'd like to do more.

I got a new job and a raise! Same employer, same division.

Salary: 80k

Updating: I'm self employed running my own lawn maintenance business. (It's an unconventional business model). I only work about 25 hours a week, and the season is winding down. Around $40/hr. Need to look into some off season work.
