I always see developers getting huge TCs. Is it a realistic expectation for SETs to target salaries >200k?

      I worked as test automation architect before (not Google). A friend is a QA director. Makes much more than 200K.

      Do you now work as QA//SETI at google?

    • Google əๅɓoo⅁
      No, I do not.
      QA are second class at Google.
      SETI were OK, but we don’t have SETI anymore.

    Yes. Principal QA/QA architect/QA managers can cross 200k. But it feels like as a career track, there is not much room for growth beyond mid level mgmt.
