Moving from India to Bay Area with spouse.
I am moving from India to Bay Area on L1 Visa for a SDE 2 role with TC ~ 170k.
My husband will be on L2 and plans to apply for EAD. What compensation can he expect with 6.5 YOE with Indian startups. He is working as an Architect / Principal. We are concerned because the companies he worked with were all unicorns but people might not know them in the US.
His present compensation is ~ USD 105k ESOPs (120k over 4 years) in India.
What is the compensation he should be targeting ?
What companies should he be looking at ?
Anything other general advice.
