    Stop with this stupid asking for a friend. Is your friend that incapable to come here and ask? Jesus Christ

      ^ Last I heard mechanical engineers don’t have any friends.

    ME Masters, 5 yoe and they want 280 tc in San Diego? That is unlikely to happen.

    When did ME with 5 Yoe start getting paid 280k per year? Which company is he currently working for ?

      But even getting half of that would be really exceptional. He might as well ask for a million.

    Lol I was actually asking for a friend. Blind etiquette is TC or GTFO, no? So I threw a number in there

    Sorry. Didn't mean to jump all over you. Just trying to fight the Blind salary craziness.

    For an ME it would be more useful to list an industry (defense, medical, contract design) and a general area (design, manf, quality, analysis). There's more specialization than in SW, and the pay is generally not as high. The industry and specific area have a lot of effect on potential salary.

    Anyone knows what is the highest TC one can get for 8 years of software experience ?

    • Apple chuck777
      Probably in billions like Mark Zuck, if it’s all about highest TC.

      Or do you mean top 10%?

    Just when you thought you had it all, your company shows you otherwise. I tell it like it is when appropriate.

    Illumina is huge and lots of manf type jobs. TC will be one of the best in the area for an ME after his RSUs start to vest, but I hear the hours are crazy.

    The other big area is defense, Northrup and General Atomics. I don't think the TC is a good as medical, but I'm not sure.

    Small device stuff - medical products wouldn't be a bad way to go. Lack of FDA experience won't be an issue at just 5 yoe. Good if he has injection molding experience. Dexcom is hiring and is one of the bigger employers. Lots of smaller companies. Just saw a posting at Truvian, a small start up ruin by an ex-Illumina guy.
