With Amazon adding 25,000 jobs to DC. What will the total compensation look like for that area? Will it be similar to Seattle?

    Majority of NOVA tech jobs relate to government contracts. TC is $100k to up to $250k with experience typically. Amazon will for sure be a top dog and steal all the talent. Will be interesting to what it does to Lockheed, Northrup, Raytheon. They are going to need to get a lot more competitive...

    • Yep. Agree on both points. I still have a frozen pension from my aerospace days, which I intend to fully milk.

      Capital one also has their hq right in nova, wondering how this’ll influence everything

      And let’s not forget that NoVA has Americas richest counties by household income. I don’t think TC average will drop.

      A lot of wealth, buts due to a lot of dual income and mostly old school money like big law, medicine.

    Doubt it'll compete with Seattle. Probably will be Boston/Chicago tier. Not like anybody in the area has much of any other option.

      Any reference to what the TC for Boston/Chicago is?

      For new grads only SF & NY are premium markets, the rest are all paid the same whether it's Seattle or Colorado or Boston so I'd expect Virginia to be on par with Seattle

      @enge374: Not true for only premium for new grads. There is base adjustment when moving between these and the base threshold is 185 versus 160, which is really not applicable to new grads.

    It will be the same as Seattle. Amazon has discount, standard, and premium market tiers in the US. Almost everything that’s a major city is Standard market, including Seattle, despite it having a high cost of living. NYC is a premium market, Bay Area is a premium market. I don’t know what big city is a discount market, not sure if I can find out... Chicago and Boston are assuredly not, maybe Detroit?

      Even with discount pay you’d feel rich in Detroit since lots of homes can be bought for < $100...that’s right, $100...not to be confused with $100k...literally $100 😂
