Cant argue. Totally agree. But there were benefits to be had if you used it to your advantage. After years if similar treatment i instead opted to move to another state and continue working from home for Oracle. My salary was/is slightly higher than your 130k. But i live in a no income tax state, where cost of living is 1/10, living a quality of life much much higher than the bay, and hardly doing any work (especially in comparison to friends that followed a path similar to yours). And there are lots of amazing girls here to date that i cant make up my mind and keep meeting more amazing ones everyday.
I second this. It's hard to beat the work-life balance I have at Oracle; and I can work from anywhere in the world. (Of course, given the option to work harder for more money, I will take that any day.)
You have 2 negatives. 1) you arent coming from Amazon (those figures were mostly for them to join the seattle office. To steal them from Amazon) 2) you arent coming from FANG and as long as you dont present a competing offer from them you wont be ranked at that level. Oci or not, coming to HQ from a non fang company without competing fang offers... I think tc will be realistically 250 max. Once you get a fang offer, your offer will compete for it.
