I'm a SWE 8 grade at Intel Santa Clara, with 6 YOE (10 including PhD), and I make 150/40/30, so 220k TC.
Is this a good salary in Intel? And comparing with other tech companies? I have a chance to get a rise and I'm trying to figure out what is a good compensation.
So anything less than a base of ~175 at 8 in SC is low. But maybe the adjustment wasn't done across multiple groups. Stocks is better than average compared to intel standard though. Also new hires are starting with 10 to 15% higher pay than internally promoted ones. So another reason to leave
