More like start of Sde2 band since the band is itself quite wide. Do note that they just happen to be where they are but are not correlated. Sde and pm are very different skill sets and the TC is based solely on their respective demand and supply gaps and not because one has been placed lower than the other.
You’re right, I meant TC. Sorry for the confusion.
Since RSU/bonuses are such a normal part of income within the social circles I live in, we would say “base” or “base salary” to discuss non-rsu pay. When discussing compensation, I almost always mean TC and have gotten used to interchanging income, salary, TC with each other.
