    90k? I'll maybe see that with 60hr weeks.

    I've got 8 years. But it's not so much the time as trying to pick up as much as you can as fast as you can and trying to excel at it. I've always thought you have to be really anal to be a good tech.

    Around the holidays with the short weeks. I don't even want to think about how much I make an hour ever since I put myself on salary.

    Yes.

    However, the proper definition of that position is "owner of the company".

    And you'll average significantly more than 60 hours a week to get that. Then wait on Obummer to stick his hand in your pocket come April....

    Salary will depend on which part of the country that the job is located in. I would estimate between $40k to $90k depending on the responsibility of the position.

    Thats surprisingly low. I just read through a job post in SoCal for an integrator at 90-110k.

    What the cost of living in that area? CA can be expensive as hell, which when factored in is going to bring you back to that range.
