I figure almost all executive managers in this company have high salaries, say in six figures.

Does "say" in the above mean "about?" If not, what does it indicate? Thanks.

Hi,

I figure almost all executive managers in this company have high salaries, say in six figures.

Does "say" in the above mean "about?" If not, what does it indicate? 'About' is close, but I also see it as suggesting 'I think, I suppose'.

Hi,

I hear it as a conversational shortened form of "let us say, for example," but I agree that in this case it means, "I think."
