FWIW, US Banks like Citi, Bank of America, JP Morgan ~mid 5k for starting grad pay. Most of them enter 2 year tech program, will be ~6.5-7k then

what no one tells you in this kind of stats, is the plateau and stagnation. Have you ever seen anyone cite salaries about 5 years? its becuse after that your salary stagnates till you retire. This industry is like footballer career, high pay for young, decreasing over the years above 5 years.

Those fresh grad exists but not that common. The starting pay for top fresh grads getting higher and higher but the starting pay for the remaining 80% of tech fresh grads is increasing at a snail's pace.

Fresh Grad, pay 6k.
Then again, govtech is 7k++
Eyes on the ball at all times. How does a business make $$? What do I do that translates to more $$ or less cost so I can ask for more $$?
What do I have to know to earn more $$?
Lastly, how do I show to interviewers I'm worth that premium?

Working in FinTech in one of the trading satellite offices here. 4 years exp, C++ code mainly. Monthly taking in around 14k, bonus see how, this year is likely an outlier but maybe around 8 months bonus.

When a bug can cost the company hundreds of thousands, they're willing to pay for careful devs

Is that base pay common or uncommon for your age?
