      The cash bonus at Airbnb is new, so it wouldn't be part of your jump from moving to Airbnb.

      Fellow Japan denizen here. How did you get into that research position, and where was it? I'd love to do something like that.

      Isn’t Japan’s expensive? How did you manage?

      Japan is expensive but not THAT expensive. Tokyo is no where near as expensive as SF.

    • New b37
      Prices in places like NY and SF have exploded upward in the past 10~20 years, plus the government has aggressively devalued the yen; even Tokyo is not expensive in US dollars anymore.

    • Capital One zolk13
      For real? VP makes 600 K at capital one?
      Just as surprising is senior director 400k?

      Depends on rating since roughly half of pay is bonus but if you are rated in the top third those are roughly the payouts. In the tech world it would likely mean you oversee roughly 30 tech teams. I am on the business side were it means I lead products that generate a few hundred million in annual profit

    My hourly wage nearly tripled when I graduated from college and got a 30k-per-year professional job.

    But the answer I suspect you want is the 17% raise I got in year 7 of my job. Never had a raise before that, and at age 29 was suddenly rewarded. Never had anything like that before or since.
