For those of you making 6 figures, how old were you when you broke that barrier?

I'm speaking total comp package, not base pay only. Bonuses are included.
Well?

[edit] And what were you doing when you hit it?

I haven't hit it yet.

If I stayed at my old job, it probably would have been around 30 or so (I'm 24). Here, I will never come close, but I'm happy.

Of course we're talking Mississippi dollars now.

"Total Comp" is a little confusing as it sweeps in a lot of items. For example, when a company moves you, there can be a lot of items that are paid and "grossed up" so you don't get taxed.

26-30 on salary and bonus alone. Before that if you really mean everything.

I was a Finance Director.

$100K isn't really much in NYC. You can easily blow half of the after tax amount on a 750 SF 1 bedroom rental in the city.

Base plus any type of bonus. Excludes relocation because that's supposedly recompensing you for expenses, also excludes benefits.

At the current company I'm at....probably at least 5 years, or now if someone were to bump a few people off :)

But I'm hoping I can break away and make it in 3 years or so.

Once again the bullsh!tters of ATOT come out. Somehow I doubt over a third of people making over $100k did it in their 20's, and one half of people here are making over 100k.

9 votes under 20? cough!bullshit!

I'd guess half who voted were still wanking to the women's lingere section of the sears catalogue, and the other half were still trying to figure out how to get away from their high school bully. :)

I doubt any of them had a job that paid much more than McDonalds.

Shens!!!

Actually, I'm suprised that half of ATOT does not make more than $100K. :Q

Pointless without location. You can make $100k in Ca flipping burgers and will only be able to afford to live in a refrigerator box.
