I have very short industry experience in a very small software company. I am a tenured CS professor living in a Big City, Texas with TC 100. I am 40s with a family of 5. Would you leave tenured academia position for a SWE position (TC 200) in Google or Amazon in Austin. Thanks.
Amazon will give you 500k - 1M if your area of PhD and research matches wit the right role (very unlikely for direct Software development). What’s your area of research?
