Advise needed for high growth rate career trajectory
Hey there folks!
I’m a master’s grad from a top 10 US university and started my career as a software engineer (SDE2) early this year in SF. I’m looking for advise on probable timelines for a fast paced career growth. Eventually I can see myself diving into engineering management path more than an Individual contributor path.
1. How much bump in TC can I expect working at the same company year on year if I’m one of the top performers, and when is the right time to talk about this with my manager?
2. I would like to know after how many years should I target being a squad lead, and what sort of TC can I expect at that stage?
3. When you do jump from one SDE level to another, how much raise in comp and stocks can one expect?
4. When is the perfect time to switch companies?
My current TC including unvested stocks ~180k
