Especially curious to see if our most senior designers can command similar TC as our non-design colleagues.

3YOE / TC ~$95k / NoVA

    Any of the $300k+ comp leaders care to share how they got there? Do you work for a FANG, start your own company, or do something else?

      Nice! Did you negotiate? Any tips for other designers to get to your level?

      Update: took an offer elsewhere.
      TC: $360k

      I did negotiate the RSU. Base was higher after additional negotiation.

      Tip wise, nothing unexpected; be able to deliver solid UX from end to end, be a team player and have solid reference. Being able to do both UX and UI as well. Having manager experience helps.
