Salary Progression (in Tech)

This was an insightful article on one person's salary progression in technology. Averages out to be something like $11,000 per year in increase over the 15 year career so far. This matches pretty well with other folks I've talked to. An accompanying Hackernews post has more datapoints. Stock options / RSUs tend to skew things and lend a high degree of variability to compensation. At higher levels it isn't uncommon for a large portion of your total compensation to be in RSUs.

Of course, where you live causes a wild variation in the value of your income. Additionally, if you're working for dope cash but miserable it's hard to see that as a net positive.
