      That 330 to 630 was impressive. How much did you negotiate? Had competing offers?

    • Microsoft 7hio8tge
      Long story. In short. I was doing very well at msft (performance-wise) but you know the promotion velocity and comp at msft are limited. I recently moved to another big company at a higher level and higher comp.

    Hopefully asking this isn't rude but what's your job? Also was the leap from 300k to 820k just the result of a company switch or was it a completely new position? I don't think I've ever met anyone aside from a couple of executives at my current company with a base pay that high
    Nov 16 1
    • Microsoft 7hio8tge
      This is annual TC, not base. It includes bonus and vested stocks.

      Yes. Company switch. Same position, but higher level.
