    anyone work in lifesciences?

    How do you get paid a decent amount in a reasonable time frame??

    Dudes making 200k as a scientist at my work but they're all 70 years old. Sick of these chitty wages. I make 70k as a biologist and promotions are so slow even though the work isn't hard at all. GOt told I need to wait 2 years before I can have a promotion and it's a 10% raise. I'm almost 30 man. What the hell am I supposed to do?


    also i have a degree in an unrelated field (uselss)

    **** man

    If you have a non science degree and not advanced degree why are you a scientist? You won't get very far.

    You need to get out of the lab and into development, biz dev, etc... just get out of the lab where you are at a severe disadvantage

    You are already making top $ for your BS/BA degree. There are people who have worked for 20 years and are pushing 50 years old barely making 60K. They also have relevant degrees like microbiology, chemical engineering, biology, etc.

    Even the bottom of the barrel people making $100K have a PhD. So that's the floor it seems.

    Are you able to jump into another industry? Since you said you have an unrelated degree. In what exactly?

    Also where are you located? This is in chit California.

    Yea bro, that's definitely above average for San Diego, but even people with good degrees are getting ****ed here in this state. Engineers pulling in $120K with 40 years of experience Accountants barely making 40K with many years of exp as well.

    If you want my $0.02, you can apply to manager positions. Many supervisors don't know jack ****, and I have realized this after many incompetent old fuks get hired into leadership positions. Those definitely pay a lot higher, but I'm not exactly sure how easy it is to break into it for your industry.

    Really pisses me off since when I first started interning, I was working with ****ing management majors and music majors lol so at least know it's possible to get something here even with a worthless degree.

    I work as an operating room nurse and many of our cases have product reps if an implant is involved. These could be anything under the sun, orthopedic implants, urology, cardiac, spine, neuro, you name it. You don't have to have a related degree and they provide extensive training. These reps are often advising the surgeon and other staff during the procedure. I do believe it's somewhat of sales-y position, you get compensated partially on the amount of products you sell. To what extent I don't know.
