    If by normal you mean if we took one sample from the distribution of incomes, is it possible we would draw $120K, then yes. If by normal you mean do you make the median income for the USA, then no, you make a lot more. If by normal you mean you’re in Texas and want to know how that affects things, I prefer to think of you as different or special just the way you are instead of thinking you are not normal.

    What role? If it’s not SWE role, it’s fine. If you do anything with software development, likely on the lower, although you likely make more than most in Plano.

    If you wanna stay coding it'll be quant funds
    Otherwise in finance it's IB, prop trading and portfolio management

      It's very good but nothing is comparable to quant hedge funds - I've met 21 year olds making close to 500k
