    I feel like even 200k is kinda hard to attain for most engineers in Silicon Beach who don't work at Snap or Google

      OP
      I have an offer from fb la for 532k. At first I was like “I’m rich!” But it looks to have gotten as bad as SF over there.

      Meanwhile I have a 410k offer from Amazon Seattle and with CoL, taxes difference it’s a negligible difference. Also don’t have to move as I’m already in Seattle!

      Not at all the case anymore. Comp has gone up dramatically across the board lately, even for startups.

    I think Apple has an office in Culver City but I haven't been there. I haven't worked in LA for a couple of years now so I'm very curious about the change in compensation. What would you say is the rough average TC you can get in Silicon Beach as a generalist software engineer with 10 YOE?
