Increasing total comp. in DC?
Product designer with 2yr+ experience making around $85k TC.
I like living in the DC area and I’d like to settle within this city.
On the other hand, I’d also like to grow my career and savings (current life goal is to become financially independent and retire early).
Do you think a DC based designer with 2-4yr experience can hit $150-200k TC like the rest of the FAANG designers on the west coast? If so, which companies/institutions should I target?
