Necessary Compensation Increase to Leave Job After a Promotion
I currently work as a half Software Engineer, half Scrum Master in the St. Louis area. A few months ago I was promoted unexpectedly to a Software Engineer II after only being there around one year after college.
YOE: 1.5 not counting any previous internships/co-ops
I have been getting a lot of LinkedIn recruiters offering up positions such as Software Engineer III, or Senior Scrum Master.
I am also finishing my Master's Degree in MIS in a month and if I leave the company in the next 2 years I will have to pay it back which is around 25K total.
What TC would make switching companies worth it in this stage of my career? I would try and get a signing bonus to take care of the school issue.
I don't mind where I am at, but some of the estimates given for a new TC as a Senior Scrum Master was around 130-140k which is tempting.
