    Please stay away from JS. The WLB is absolutely horrible. One of my dear bros is busting his ass there 14-15 hrs a day. You want that?

    Also, 375k is for rockstar new grad. Most new grad wagec*cks start around 220 which is still impressive but not worth busting ass 14-15 hrs a day.

    Oh, also software dev is third class citizen in JS. You will be given slightly more attention than the janitor.

      About the same as devs, by design.

      “they’re on par with traders in pretty much every sense” lmao

      No they’re not. The front end/traders get treated like royalty compared to back office. I’ve spent 4 years at JS so I’m speaking from experience.

      TC was 340

      I don't really know what to say, that's just clearly not true from my perspective (and I'm about as back office as it gets). 340 after 4 years sounds very low, although obviously that depends on when it was.

      @MLweinsky why did u leave JS to come to PayPal ? PayPal pays peanuts compared to JS.

      I’m pretty sure traders are making quite a bit more than devs on average, but there’s no salary transparency so there’s no way of knowing

      I refuse to believe any fresh grad is actually worth paying that much really.

      I can see how dissing other companies is fun, but for those who are suspicious of the high comp numbers from trading firms - none of this is new. Trading firms have always paid devs a lot more than big tech co for the obvious reason - the business is growing and the average marginal dev is helping the firm make more than their TC. It’s be a mistake to think trading firms, out of all industries, don’t do the math before they hire new people.

      No fresh grad is worth that much but they choose to pay it shrug. More power to them.

      Building trading systems sounds much more fun than working at Doordash to me.

      I personally prefer more user facing products but that’s just me. A lot easier to talk to people about what you do too plus everyone can use something you built

    For all you doubters, this is a direct response to citadel and is attainable for return top tier interns or those with competing offers. This is not the standard package :P

      Really? I had a friend who said 300 was the standard this time around (also guessing the 300 base was meant to be 200 lmfao)

      Yeah, should have clarified that the crazy high offers are for new grads starting in 2020 and going forward.

      Would jane st hire from other financial firms with 1 year non compete?

      I failed JS interview recently and wondering if it’s best to try again from google or try other trading firms (2s, pdt, etc) and move from there?

      I'm pretty sure standard for 2020 is 200+100+100. This is high for a new grad.

      It's not that straightforward, but also 1 isn't necessary. Our NY office hires Canadians regularly, and our Hong Kong and London offices pay nearly as much and hire from all over Asia, Australia, and Europe.

    It most probably base+RSU (vests in 4-5 yrs). So, new grads may be making 140-150K per year where rest will be RSUs.

    Lol you do realize your realized take home is $175k-$195k. You’re better off taking a role in Seattle where you don’t have income tax.

      Not sure if you’re trolling or dumb. The expat rate from SV to Seattle shows that people do want to live there and they’re going there for a plurality of reasons. Higher expat rate than NYC.

      Population is a snapshot of perceived value of the city and doesn’t take into account the tech boom.

      A much better metric is where are people moving to for technology.
