      It’s amazing how much higher pay is in the Bay Area. I hope that spreads to the Boston area my houses value will go through the roof if it does :)

      Well I feel one of the reasons that drove up is because of increased housing cost and vice versa ... some may argue it’s a chicken and egg problem

      Bay Area also has a greater concentration of tech companies so you could argue the salaries were bid up in competition and it was the salaries that increased the housing prices.

    It is hard to see the equivalence of sr director level at other companies, but if you can get t6 or above, you could easily double your tc.

      True. Well senior at fang will be roughly 3-5 years experience and at 350k. The stock is liquid and won’t drop that mucho

      E5 in 3 years? I rarely see anyone from L4 to L6, staying at a shithole like Amazon is hard

      Is this only for software roles or even for senior analyst ? I don’t think so.

    Your title is meaningless at other tech companies, except the comp band it implies for you. Every company has a comp team, which has models to price you, based on the specific company your coming from, your level there, and how long you’ve been at that level. If it’s to your advantage, reveal how long you’ve been at the leve; if not, hide that info if possible.

    Based on what recruiters can know (comp at top of your band), you should decide how much comp you can reasonably shoot for. In your case, I’d suggest something like $350 - $400. Then, map that comp desired to a target level at your desired company. For example, 350-400 would be a L66 at Microsoft.

      Just to speed you up. You’re probably going to be leveled L5 at Google and Facebook. L6 or L7 at Amazon. L66 at Microsoft.

      Director title has different meaning at different companies, Amazon’s director level might be VP level elsewhere. I worked at Amazon and few other big firms, Amazon’s director level is a lot harder to get
