If your first job was before FAANG pouring 200k out there (like pre 2010), tell us the year if you don’t mind?

      Entered amazon in 2009 and top performer, plus made good investments and predicted some crypto that hit. Most of it was from Amazon though

    Could this be the first time in blind’s history that people deflate their TC?

    Why? What does it matter. Where is the “this is another stupid poll” vote option?

    First job or first tech job? My first job was at 14 as a bag boy in Winn Dixie for about $4.25/hr

    Lame adult job at a mobo manufacturing plant in 96 for $10/hr.

    First real tech job beyond contracting was military in 98; less than $20k capping at $45k by 2004.

    Now I am well beyond that, with a pre-stock TC (on paper) of $250k and skirting an offer of $200k base + $175k comp. at a non-FAANG company.

    High school dropout. Yea yea some of you west coasters and grads probably had it easier, no kidding. Though the non-FAANG offer is back in a state where the median income in IT is 1/3rd here.

      I plead the fifth while the offer is in the table, I will tell you in two weeks! I will say that it is a Director level position with a very good compensation package.

    First job out of school was $25/hour in 1996. Didn't take any vacation and got paid for going slightly over 40 hours most weeks, so got like $53k the first year.

    After I returned to school, got $56k full time at my first development job in 1999. Clearly fouled up my salary negotiation as they bumped me to $65k at my 90 day review, and they only do that if you are woefully underpaid and they're worried about you leaving.

    Stock did pay off from that place, my TC was probably about $90 in my first full year.

      My first job was 65 base, and by hour for OT. I worked extra because I liked working and I needed the money, so I ended up $90ish? That was 80-100 hours a week. I actually did not bill the company all the hours; I was naive. My boss later told me to file all the hours. A year and a half later I was given full time. Salary was slightly above 100k.

      Back then most companies give you options :p I got a bunch of msft options that were pretty worthless, not bothering to include here. I think I also got 10k sign on, which is also not included.

      Thanks! First one my partially my fault. I asked for $40k and after being told I was lowballing myself I was able to negotiate up to $43k. Lol. Yeah I’ve been blessed. Been a crazy journey.

    $250/month working 70-80 hours a week, yes you read that correctly and no I didn’t leave out a zero, two fking fifty only. Do the math and it’s roughly $0.75/hour...

    Bank internship at an Asian country and literally losing money after rent, food and transportation... oh and that’s in the 2010s

      But you were in Asia. $250 goes a long way there. Quit trolling bro

      250 does not go a long way in most major cities in Asia.
