    Hmmm you’re not going to be making 150k a year in a shit fly over state.

    I moved from the Bay Area to the East side of Washington near Seattle, folks here don’t make as much as I do for sure, at least not on average. We both have good salaries so we can afford a lot of things. We essentially got to keep most of our bay area salaries.

    But even then if we need a big repair we still have to sit down and plan out the money.

    I can’t even imagine what it’s like for folks around here.

      I live in Nebraska, and all comp included make around 155k per year salary + bonus. You can make that kind of money even here in the “shit”

          I’m a software architect, though even when I was just a senior java developer I was making 130k, software pays well even in the fly overs.

            I’m a level 2 Engineer and I make close to what you’re making TC. Hopefully maybe more come next year. And I don’t work for the big 5. I work for a hospital group. Seniors make well close to double that in TC. Principals make slightly more.

            Also there are more jobs for higher levels than in non tech hubs. Career wise you’ll probably be making more complex systems too.

            You have it good for sure, but you’re the outlier my guy.

              I know that, I was just refuting the claim that “your not going to make that kind of money in a flyover state”, it is possible, and you don’t have to work the big 5 here either, and the cost of living is way less.

          Titles at my company are kinda dumb, but I’m the head of employee development for a manufacturing company

          I’m pretty sure my title only exists at my company so I deleted it just in case.

            How many years of experience did you need to get that job?

              I have 13 years of experience but my first Directorship was after 5 (comparable budget and authority).

              This job is technically a step down for me but the money was right and it’s a unique opportunity
