Really depends on what you're doing

If you're just another web dev/code monkey, you really don't deserve much to begin with

Spergs just want a comfy job and the ability to come home and play vidya and fuck with Linux for 8 hours a day.

Why do you think all the normies go for business?

>>1012530

are you fucking joking? Tech is the boom industry? What the hell are all those startups in SF doing then? Are they charities?

>mediocre income
If you get your CS degree at 22, you'll break six figures well before you're 30.

If you're unsatisfied with that then you're an idiot.

>>1012530

Dunno, I'm doing pretty good. $110k+ plus a year, nice house, enjoy the work I do (just not the BS that surrounds the job).

I'm making 120k as a Software Developer first year out of school. After one year I'll have opportunities to move up the ranks of development or move into team/product management.

Work in tech, senpai.

I majored in communications. You can always do worse m8
>>
>>1013178
Master's or Bachelors?
>>
>>1013179
Wtf is communications?

What do you even study? Like communication systems or something, cell towers and shit?
>>
>>1012530

I feel the same way. 90k in Boston. I have had the opportunity to find myself in a highly skilled team where I am learning a lot, but I'm unsure if there's any future as a career.

I have been thinking of going back to South America and starting an IT consultancy in a few years when I have around 5 years experience.

I don't really see what else to do with my career besides save for financial independence.

I should have studied Architecture or gone into the military like the rest of my family. Why didn't I listen?

> I should have studied architecture
5 years of intensive study, followed by years of hard work just to get into a soul-crushing field where you have a 1/50 chance of ever building anything good.

Also, modern architecture is shit. Architects are effectively desperate prostitutes. No integrity, no virtue.

That pic is what millions of architects wish they could build but can't because they're cucks to the system.

I couldn't think of a class of people whose dreams and aspirations are more dashed than architects. Pathetic fucks.

>>1013184
Bachelor's. Any entry Software Dev job at Google/Amazon/Microsoft will net you this much or more.

Man, that is the most childish "stop liking what I don't like" I've ever seen.

iktf m8. I feel like I fell for a meme. Did a computer science internship last summer at a random ass company and it was boring as fuck. I tried getting a cool internship this year but after getting rejected by most of the companies I applied to the only reputable internship I still have a shot at is Amazon, which is infamous for how shitty it can be to work there. I'm too much of a sperg to make connections or make people like me so the entrepreneurial route of CS seems closed off, and my CS skills or lack thereof definitely don't make up for it. I feel like I'm just going to end up sucking the dick of some large tech company for the rest of my life without moving up and its too late to jump ship. I don't really know how I feel about sitting at a computer for 8+ hours a day and writing shippable code can really get boring. Is every industry this shitty?
>>
With CS you have guaranteed middle - upper class life.
and many possibilities to go beyond that
>>
>>1014452
I got a mechanical engineering degree and a job in the field and this is how I feel. Not much of a chance to make shit loads of money, but I should be able to make $100,000+ by the time I'm 25. From there I see many possibilities outside of the field.
