Many years back I used to do embedded/real-time. Mostly software and system design. Back at the time, we were looking down to these front-end people (and making much more, BTW). I wonder, how is my old field doing?

Is there anybody here working in embedded/real-time? Which company or field? How's the TC?

      Any idea how well FAANG embedded pays? In FAANG, it is AAG mostly I assume?

      Yes it is AAG. Had an interview with Facebooks portal team which didn’t go well. The pay is comparable (in some cases more than) what is posted here on blind

    Many companies do still work on embedded.. TC isn’t bad. It is pretty competitive is what I found

      But not FAANG level?

      I see A req for embedded people, principal level...I wonder what the TC should be. If it is what people claim here it is for A L7, perhaps I need to go back to my old field :)

    Pay is pretty good. If you're good, it's on par with other software engineering roles. Especially with the whole autonomous vehicles gold rush the number of openings for embedded have increased significantly.

      Damn. I was pretty good. Maybe it was a mistake to move to telecom...
