A ton of engineering TC numbers and I’m curious how much people in marketing here are making especially in the bay/Seattle/NY?

      That’s amazing. What does it take to crack a marketing position at Goog? What do they look for in candidates primarily?

    California law allows you to ask what the base salary range is for a role. The company must reveal it to you by law. Check out AB168. Here are some bay area product marketing salaries that I have seen over the years:
    Director of Product Marketing, 10 yrs experience: $180-200k base, 25% bonus, $100k stock over 4 years
    Principal Product marketing manager, 8 years experience: $160-180k base, 20% bonus, $75k stock over 4 years
    Senior product marketing manager, 6 years experience: $140-$160k base, 15% bonus, $50k stock over 4 years
    Product marketing manager, four years experience: $120-140k base, 10% bonus, $25k stock over 4 years

      Yea I've been around for a few years and the stock appreciation has been great.

      The stock appreciation has been great as well. Our levels got mapped to Salesforce now so promotions are a lot slower. I’m a marketing analyst at 100k base and 50k rsu

      @BarcMeniof I don’t know how many years of experience you have, but with your salary you are technically poverty level in the bay area. Please move out somewhere cheaper as soon as possible. Us marketing folks are considered third class citizens. Engineers are treated as gods in Silicon Valley.

      That's a really interesting comp split with such a heavy bonus percentage vs rsus.

      Its Intel - they give nothing in stock (compared to most).

      Wow! How much can I ask for an online marketing manager role?
      Jun 18, 2018
    • Intel / Mktgnononsense
      Well... that could actually range from a junior role paying like $60-70k / year if you are just managing part of the web presence or a social media manager to a senior role who owns all of our digital media and marketing programs which would be about the same as me.

    I have three remote clients, and I make $312,000 / year. It's totally not full-time work though, which is nice.

      How are you able to get 40 hours per week and have time for these additional blog posts? I charge my clients in the hundreds of dollars per hour and for the amount of work I get, it’s probably about 10 hours or less per client.
