Is 40k a good salary? Watch
40k is not the starting salary, the starting salary is usually in the 20s (I think). ~40k is the 'top of your game' salary as far as I can see.
However, it depends on which part of the country you live in too.
Need a few more details before someone can give you a definite answer... It's also quite a subjective.
if you can pay all your expenses (and have savings for luxuries if u want), then it's fine!
For me no. But an average person it is. But me is me and average person is average person. For me 600k is not a good enough salary but thats just me because I know I can do better than 40k or 600k etc. Don't settle for something less than you are capable of.
If you have a dual income household you could be really quite comfortable though.
Only you know if that's a good salary depending on your expectations. I measure my salary based on disposable income anyway.
Wonder what you like but it still doesn't change the fact that the way I think is different from you. You instantly judged me for my name and my avatar which suggests to me you have a long way to go.
I don't have a problem though, well done for being ambitious but it's not going to go down well when people are talking about 40k salaries (which is a good salary for anybody to be able to live on nicely) and coming in and saying you wouldn't even be happy with 600k a year because you're "better than that".
But not looking to get into an argument about it, it's not that big a deal. Hope you have a good day and fair play if you do reach your career aspirations, all the luck to you
40k 4 years after graduating - good
40k 6 years after graduating - meh
(that's from my personal view but then again i either wanna go into banking or front line politics/policy advisor so..)
