I really am surprised to hear this. I'm about 250 all in and I haven't heard of many software devs pulling over 200 all-in. This is for Boston and I'm 6 years out of my undergrad with no graduate degree (although I didn't go to college until my late twenties and I have noticed my maturity helps a little). Maybe on average it's the same but data scientist at the right company has a higher upper limit?

200k+ is common at L5+ at my company and it’s not Google or Facebook fwiw.
