Due to politics and cliff, need to leave G but at least want to get a raise. Recommendations for tech firms in NYC that can pay 300k to sde2? I know finance firms can (2s, js, hrt, etc).

Obligatory 260tc 5yoe

      Interesting data point from amzn. But those tc is not possible without competing, and if you have competing most likely will join the other firm anyway so...

      @amazon - I heard AMZ doesn’t give more than 160k base. Rest are only stock options. Is that correct or fake news?

    You can try to get SDE3 at amzn. It's a long shot though because they hardly ever up level, but it possible.

    Otherwise finance firms you mentioned are your best option. They will actually pay more then 300k.

      Alexa is really cool though depends alot on team. Some teams are really bad. Transition is easy after 1 year.

      I went to northwestern.

      Nice. How helpful was your master's in transitioning to an ML role? And do you think it would have been doable without the master's?

      Masters serves as good resume header, but it is useless otherwise. Alot of companies want look at you without masters(alot require PHD).

    • Facebook / Eng mturtle
      I'm not sure. Probably depends on ml segment you want to do.

    Try Twitter, SDE2 at 300k is median here. Let me know if you need a referral. Good luck with your move, political bs is unfortunate

    Besides finance stuff you mentioned, FB Uber Lyft Snap can all offer 300k for sde2. Maybe also Square and Spotify but not 100% sure.

    What do you mean by cliff? I'm also interested in hearing about those who made this transition, especially in regards to wlb

      Basically promo is not in sight. Also my perf got impacted by politics thus my tc will go down next year due to lackluster refreshers.

    Don't go to Amazon. The politics are much worse over there. Try FB or MS. (Not sure if MS has anything in NYC, but you can easily get senior position at MS)

      Don't bother with MS, 300k is not gonna happen even for senior 😁

    • Amazon zfgcvhj
      Really?!

    • Microsoft / Eng rLcX37
      You must be new around here 😅 yes, msft pays below par compared to the insane wages that companies offer now.
      Maybe a highly rated senior can get 300 because of a large sign on, but that lasts only first year or two. And the stock cliff is brutal and I don't know why anyone would want to join knowing they have to leave in 4 years.

      I mean most people leave their company in 4 years because of the cliff. In Amazon this is very normal. I thought it wouldn't be the case at Google, but this post changed my mind!
      Not sure at FB.

      Anything can happen. Google is not a wonderland. Though i must say im very unlucky. If i got into a good team, i’d likely to stay here for years to come

    JS is probably best money to work ratio, 350 is doable.

    I think that’s most of it, dude. Maybe Uber, Lyft and Facebook, but I think those are all your options. Maaaaybe Twitter.
