5+ years of experience of working in applied machine learning + PhD in applied maths. I feel they are low balling. Any input?

    A quarter of a million is lowballing with 5 years of experience? GTFO.

      So you mean an undergrad with 5 years of industry experience is at the same skill level as a PhD with 5 years of industry experience (Keeping all other things constant)? Are you high or what? Nothing else can justify your stupid logic.

      PhD is highly desirable for certain types of position that requires research. It shows a candidate’s ability to carry out independent research. So years of industry experience without a track record of research really doesn’t count.

      Chris Olah doesn’t have a University degree but he is way better than most PhDs in ML. But folks like him are more exception, not the norm.

    It is a good offer (2000 RSU) that pegs your TC above the median.

    If you perform, current refresher is around 1000 shares at focal review time, which will bring your TC close to 300K in 2nd year.

  • Just wondering what is the content of work for "applied machine learning"? And how is it different from machine learning algorithm/model research?

    It’s a good offer. It will be hard to negotiate if no competing offers. Which team?

    Decent base for P4, RSU slightly lower than avg due to the recent adjustment in base price for RSU. Not a low ball, but you should shoot for 290k for a decent P4 offer

    This is a good offer. Economy is stagnant. Job market is feeling a labor shortage pinch. You’ll want to be in a position where your resume has big ticket line items on it. Not job hops every 6-9months.

    Speaking as a senior DS joining a Big Four....
