When to expect more than 200k? AI Data Science

Sep 29, 2019 26 Comments

I've worked in data analytics, data mining, data science, or machine learning (or what ever new name is out), for almost 5 years now. Most of the job salaries I've seen in Georgia are below $175k. But I noticed on here most report having a salary above $200k. So what am I missing? Are these usually like Dept manager positions? Or people with 10 years experience? Yea I could get more if I'd finish my Master's but from what I seen it still wouldn't be above $200k.

      Also many of us were smart enough to do data scientist like projects before grad school (I actually did a few in undergrad). Grad school and school in general is just the official stamp. But it's helpful for people like you that likely copied and paid their way through school ;-)

    Most 200k+ people here live in Bay Area. You need to adjust for cost of living. They are also in FAANGMULLA companies. Your masters won’t have much effect on this salary difference. Leetcode will make more difference in general.

    Salary of $200,000 in San Francisco is only $90,000 in Atlanta. Do a cost of living comparison. Don't get colored by the high TC in the bay area. After taxes and rent/mortgage, it's the same as making less than half in Many other parts of the country.

    Bay Area cost of living is higher so salaries are also higher.

    Data analytics, data mining, data science and machine learning are names for the same thing?

      Also there are many data scientist and machine learning engineers without grad degrees. And some of the dumbest ones I've met had PhDs

      Forget about the names, read up about basic of ML and you get that each person in each company is doung slightly different thing and these names are just keep evolving.. data miner, data analysis, knowledge discovery, data science, applied scientist...
