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.

Title: Staff Accountant

Age: 26 (1 month and 1 day 'til 27!)

Salary: $33,500 (32k base + 1500 to help pay for health insurance) Underpaid really, but I do work at a very small firm and have little experience

Experience: 7 months

Education: B.S. in Accounting (Hoping to get started on CPA exam next year)

I help handle bookkeeping and payroll for small businesses. This coming tax season I will be assisting with corporate tax returns, 1099s, and property tax returns as well.

Been there, the increases should happen fast, just learn as much as you can. I work in an office that does payroll and corporate returns. Once you get your CPA, the raises should start coming quickly, if they dont you should find other opportunities. Our office would pay 2 times what they are paying you, but we are in a HCOL area.

I have four jobs, in Yellowknife.

Another Northerner on MMM! Hello from your neighbour in Nunavut!

Hello to you up there! I spent about 25 years in Nunavut and Nunavik in places like Arviat, Salluit, Kuujjuaq and Gjoa Haven. Had a blast and years went so fast, I can't believe I stayed that long. All my children were born and raised in Nunavut and I have fond memories of my time there.

Both of my parents are nurses, and neither of them make close to that, both RN's. May I ask what department you are working in? My wife is considering moving into the nursing field.

Experience - 26 years

Education - Master's Degree +36 additional credits

Salary $72,000

I am topped out.  I could work another 25 years and not make anymore than I make now.  In fact I looked and my salary has gone down a few hundred dollars each year for the past four years.

Fantastic, thanks for all the replies!

What Iíve learnt:

1.   Salaries in the US seem higher than in the UK



Yes, and in return we have very little social safety net, many fewer protections, and less vacation. If all factors are considered, there isn't as much difference as it might appear.
I disagree, on average people can amass a stash much faster in the U.S. This is the whole reason MMM moved to the U.S. in the first place. Take into consideration that not only are the salaries higher, but the taxes are considerably lower. The U.S. doesn't have as much "protections" or "safety nets". But a lot of employers provide protections and safety nets as benefits and these can be bought after you retire much earlier. Mustachians are also much more fit and healthy and on average have less health problems, they also know how to fix a lot of there own problems, so these protections and safety nets are less valuable to us as well.

Job Title: I have no idea. Seriously. I work in the public education system as a professional, but not in a pre-defined work category. I think they classified it under ''Analyst'' or ''Academic Counsellor'' but I'm neither of these.

Education: MA +3 years ph.d  (thesis not submitted). I'm not working in my field, by choice. Most people I know who graduated years ago still don't have a steady career. I should thank Facebook and LinkedIn for the wakeup call before I lost years pursuing a dead-end career. I just regret not realizing this sooner. I decided to use the multiple skills I developed from higher education to apply in another field. Took a few months but it paid off.

Salary: $50K (CAN). It's the 7th ladder. To give you an idea, the highest ladder tops right under $75K. Womp womp.
Age: 29.
Years experience : 1 year.

I have no idea what the future holds. I really like the field I'm in and I'm in a great place for networking. Very nice work conditions too. Although the earning potential is not great, I still consider this to be the best job I could have gotten for networking and career leverage. So we'll see. Working hard on maintaining excellent professional relationships with everyone I meet. :)

Title: DevOps/Infrastructure Engineer (it's IT but not really a "programmer" or Software Engineer) working remotely full time
Age: 28
Experience: 5 years
Education: BS and MS Electrical/Computer Engineering

Salary: ~$112k + 2k equipment allowance (for internet access primarily) + 4% 401k match

It's probably higher than many with my title and experience but the biggest thing that helped me on that front was getting a security clearance right out of college. Defense contractors need people with clearances so they'll pay about a 15% premium for those that have them and when you're fresh out of college, they'll pay for you to get it. When I left the defense industry, that 15% bump stuck around even though the job no longer required a clearance, that just became my new anchor point for a company to hire me.

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.
What would you say the prospects are for someone who is decent at the GUI side of GIS (e.g. making layers, shapefiles, and basic analysis using existing toolboxes) but not so versed on the highly technical side (e.g. producing interactive GIS maps on the web, extensive scripting) ?
Just curious. most of my products are basic such as creating maps for planning documents or geospatially tracking projects.

What job titles would I look for? Geospatial/cartographic technician? Certainty not a true 'analyst'...?

Are you in the US? I'm a PGY-4 in gen surg in the US and Medicare pays us around $65k. Also, your salary will only go up $40k after finishing? Just curious, your country's system seems quite different than here.

Title: Electrician
Age: 31
Experience: 10 yrs
Salary: $45/hr + health/dental/vision/pension
Education: HS + 5-year apprenticeship. Technical certificates and training. Welding classes.

Trades will beat the crap out of your body, but I love it most of the time. I had an office IT/web dev gig after HS and it made me want scream. The more you know, the more you're worth. I've been lucky to find a niche and it's kept me employed plus perks.

Title: Word Processor
Age: 49
Experience: Almost 20 years
Salary: ~$70,000 (NYC, compensation includes discretionary bonus)
Education: A.A.S. (working on a Bachelor's degree ever so slowly), great firm training at a previous job plus learning on my own.

I've enjoyed the ride, and have no illusions that I would have made this kind of money anywhere else with this skill set.  Thank goodness for insecure rich people who thought typing on a computer was beneath them.

Where is it? I'm always looking to move up and that 401k match is tempting.

Middletown, NY
ahhhhh, that's somewhere where it gets cold. I'm looking to relocate to somewhere where it stays warm haha.

Fantastic, thanks for all the replies!

What Iíve learnt:

1.   Salaries in the US seem higher than in the UK



Yes, and in return we have very little social safety net, many fewer protections, and less vacation. If all factors are considered, there isn't as much difference as it might appear.

True but as another mentioned you also pay less taxes the big benefits for us is free healthcare which you could easily spend a lot on (and holidays if you're that way inclined - minimum = 4 weeks most average around 23 days plus bank holiday's).

Software Validation Manager
Salary is about $110k including bonuses
Work 10-20 hours per week generally
BSEE, MBA-Finance
Job is very flexible, but not very challenging any more.  I may change in 2016

Wowza! I'd happily take up the reins!

Aerospace Engineer
$180K.

I retired almost a year ago at age 55.  Worked at the same place for 33 years. Started at around $22K back in 1982. Living happily on about $60K a year in retirement.

Great to hear! 33yrs is unheard of these days!
Based in the UK? www.moneynest.co.uk provides financial advice for 20-30yr olds.

Have a great day :)

Me:
Title: Logistics Analyst
Age: 27
Experience: 8 years (started as an intern in college)
Salary: $40,000/year + ~$2,000 annual bonus + 6 weeks vacation + excellent health benefits (no payroll deduction) and 401k match (25% of contributions up to federal max = $4500 if you max)
Education: BBA Operations Management

I could probably make more if I switched companies but I work for a company that truly puts employees and their families first and has awesome benefits.  If you have any sort of family issue you are accommodated which is awesome with having 2 young kids.

Husband:
Title: Web Engineer
Age: 29
Experience: 7 years
Salary: $80,000 + 4 weeks vacation.  We don't utilize their health insurance but it's not that great anyways. No 401k match but they still have a pension which begins after you've been working there for 5 years.  They contribute 5% of salary annually.
Education: BBA Information Technology

We also own an income property which nets us about $5,000/year after expenses and savings and my husband has a side business that brings in around $10,000 annually on average.
