My brother has taken up a job (software engineer)in Mountain View , CA and he has been offered 100K and nothing else . No bonus , no stock options , no rsu's. Visa H1B
Now the thing is how much would be the take home salary considering his salary. The company doesn't offer 401K.
From what I know , the cost of living in bay area is very very high and with this salary , he can just afford to make a decent living , nothing more.
1) Can 100K for a 9+ years experiences Java developer be considered as a good package. I know it depends on the skills , but please give me your opinion.
2) As the cost of living is very subjective and would vary from person to person , can someone point me to getting a approximate figure of monthly take home. I have used sites like paycity etc , but the number looks quite less like 4k or so.
3) Can someone point me to things that one should consider while calculating deductions. Like house , transport , phone , tv , etc
Any help would be highly appreciated!
