What’s your gross income according to your latest W2 and your yoe. W2 already has RSU at vest price, bonus. Don’t include your spouses’ income, don’t include stock appreciation. Just the gross income mentioned in W2

    269K / 15 YOE but then my passive income is more than my W-2 income. So that matters more to me. Just saying.

      Our passive income just passed my W2 for the first time. Wife hasn't worked in 11 years. We're in our late 30s. I'm debating quitting or going on a career break. Don't want to give up our current lifestyle though...

    • Google pure.truth
      Sort of hard to explain in comments. Key thing is to state clearly what is important to you (comp) when appropriate. Don't be overbearing or pushy, but be clear it is what you want. Helps to start dropping hints well before the time your manager will need to make decisions - this way it is in his/her head for a while. And of course you have to be good ;-)

      I made great money when I was younger and I invested it all well. I don’t work to climb corporate structures. I work because I enjoy working. If I hadn’t made money when younger, I would be chasing each pay raise. I think each person has their motivations for what moves them. Family living in some areas, for instance, may prevent you from moving elsewhere for more pay. Kids and spouses may prevent you from working long/hard hours to get the big $ rewards for your efforts. It’s all a trade off and we all pick our balance.

      It’s high but there’s some significantly appreciated equity in that number. At steady state it’ll be closer to 600-650k. Again, that’s why these #s only provide so much value. There’s so much luck involved.

      We also are extremely easily measured, subject to plenty of problems out of our control that affect our comp and employment, and have to take wildly variant income yoy. My quota is hundreds of millions.

      Right. But curious about the reason. No competition among employers to hire the best in EU ?
      Apr 16
    • New / Other kk:@&-
      Negotiating is a joke (as in, don’t do it or they’ll pull your offer) and outsiders can’t get in to raise competition (or awareness really of what skills are worth elsewhere). With COL lower and healthcare and pension “paid for”, natives aren’t exactly rebelling for rights or salary. Aaaand, workers already fall into default (already negotiated) labor “unions” by way of job function. Holidays, pto and other benefits are laws built into what you get hired for. It’s pretty impressive (in an anti capitalist way) ;-)
      Apr 16
    • Booking.com Traveljjyd
      Less differences in salaries in Europe than in the US in general. Middle class people usually live better in Europe but if you're qualified and in a hot industry like tech you do make less than in the US. Also France in special as there is more supply in engineering (a lot of good schools) than in most other countries so less room to negotiate.
