    Depends very heavily on the team. Some teams it’s 1 - 2 years, others its 4-5 years. Some Seniors are clearly staffs on other teams, some swe are clearly senior on other teams. It’s not very uniform.

    Any idea on year to year increment? I have been told its 5 % by friends, but that sounds a little low..

      5% sounds low? How much have you been getting?

      In the US? That's a lot. Most top companies offer 5-10% non-promo raises per year. Some companies offer no raise, and a ton of them offer 1-3%.

    LinkedIn promos to senior are very fast iirc, so maybe 4-5 years? Increments depend on your initial package. Mind sharing?
