    Has anyone here ever worked/considered working in “brand management” at a CPG giant like P&G, General Mills, etc? I just looked up salaries...it’s like $180k for roles with 4-5yrs experience, and those offices are all in the Midwest. You could buy a mansion in Cincinnati with that kind of money! Or more preferably, save 80% of your earnings while working for a few years and then buy somewhere you’d actually want to live. Plus it’s client-side, and something tells me the hours would be super easy
