    Depends where in Texas. Plano is pretty competitive. I was making around 200k as PM lead, you’re prob looking around 150-250 in that area. San Antonio might be a bit cheaper. Depends on seniority I guess. Watch out for the insane property taxes depending on the areas though. You’ll still be paying around 1000usd/mo for a 400-500k house after paid off.

    I was actually considering switching to Capital One. Would be interested to hear about your experience there.
    I believe my friend with the same background as me (same previous company) , 3.5 yoe, makes 115 or 120 at Capital One and says it's fairly low stress.

    In Austin, most people I know are 100-140ish, with a decent amount of people above and below. If you're working at a big company it can be much higher. Texas is a big state, you will probably want to clarify where you mean.

    • That sounds right. And with climbing inner city rents you don't really come out much far ahead of bay area.
