A bit of personal news.
So for the midyear stretch, I received an 11% pay increase. For those you keeping track, that is a total increase of 108% over my starting salary when I entered this position just short of 3 years ago.
To say this is amazing and stunning to me is at best an understatement. For the record, I am officially making a rather stupid amount of money.
I am grateful, of course- with two children now in college and living in one of the fastest growing cities in the US, it could not come at a better time. And I would say that I feel that I have earned it, if only measured by the amount of stress and hours that have been put into getting to this point.
And humbled, of course. I have said for years that outside of IT, only the biopharmaceutical industry could have given me the ability to see such incredible career growth in such a short period of time. I am blessed beyond words.
Here is to hoping I continue to show myself worthy of it.
