Don't think I will make that cut now as well but really envy their pay.... To be able to retire at the age of 40yrs with a comfortable life thereafter....

Good luck guys. For those who is stuck, hopping after every 2-5yrs will probably help jump your pay more. Smart HR usually benchmark your last drawn pay.... So getting that first highly paid job is even more important...
Wow..7 yrs exp only and u hit 200k..i think most of your peers in banking are not even making as much as u..except for those in investment banking FO.

I fully agree with what u said.. "hopping after every 2-5yrs will probably help jump your pay more. Smart HR usually benchmark your last drawn pay.... So getting that first highly paid job is even more important" (I doubt most HR do that benchmarking..)
