    Blind is gonna give you Bae/Seattle salaries. Don’t compare yourself to that.

      Indeed. 55k was great for out of college in the midst of the recession imo

      Yeah, for most people I went to school with, 55k straight out of college is the high end.

    Nothing wrong with that, but comparing yourself to people who joined FAANG right out of college won't make you feel good.

  • Comparing is kind of disease.. I’m almost you can’t do better in life if you live in the same way. If you want to do something better in life just focus what you love not $.

    I'm at about 55k at 25 in Seattle, you're doing above average since I'm also above most folks I know (but feel horribly behind too)

    From an east coast perspective...

    I started at 28k at 22, was at either 60 or 70 at 24, hit 105k right around 25th birthday, now close to 180 at 27... just keep working hard and if your current company can’t pay you what you’re worth start looking for a change

    Depends on location. I started making 61k base @ 22 in RTP. Not great, but not that bad, either.
