What level do SWEs plateau? Senior swe?

Im in tech for money and absolutely hate it but I'm decent at it. If I could get to senior swe and make 300-400k TC and save for 5 years, I could retire with at least a million with my current savings. I don't want a big house in the city and just want out of the rat race.

    How are you going to live the rest of your life with a 1 million nest egg? Genuinely curious

      There's plenty of places you can live comfortably on $50k/yr if you don't have a job. I imagine you move there and put your feet up.

    Depends on the company. Most at Google SWEs plateau at senior engineer. They make about 300k-450k TC.

    SWE don't plateau. They just fade away.

      Maybe they plateau, save up enough, and quit forever like I plan on doing
