      Can’t be true. For six YOE your base might be 125k but not TC.
      Not trying to be an asshole and genuinely trying to help by the difference in TC since I used to work there not too long ago as a PM in San Mateo

    Comp at Sony sucks relative to other tech places. Bonuses can be really good (they are now, and when I left a few years ago). When I left I was at 137K and 35% bonuses, senior engineer. I was close to Staff.

    My guess is you are on the high end of their Senior level, would move to Staff soon if your manager is good at driving that. Bonuses will be good as long as Sony is good, but I imagine first year could be quiet because you’d be new.

    This is assuming my mappings from PMs to Engineers make sense. Could be totally wrong.

      That is true. Regardless do you know much about Sony's comp?

      Sony comp is decent but no high-fliers like Devs at FAANGs etc... For a Program Mgr role this is a great offer. That field tends to top out pretty low, but allows people to build VP level skills in certain things that reflect well in corporations when coupled with diverse experiences

      It seems really low. Considering the cost of living is high in the bay compared to Seattle. Trying to understand if there is any wiggle room

      Good question, sorry. I was hired at 15%, upgraded to 20% as baseline. My last two years I was awarded 30%+.
      I suspected it was a function of how good PS4 was doing versus my work, but couldn’t get any real answers. As in...I suspect if PS4 sales went down and I was still doing good work, my bonus would go down.
