Current TOC: $88k
YOE: 4.5

Current job is at a financial company. I work with Java, Angular. Need H1B visa transfer (I140 approved).

I have never looked at leetcode nor do I plan to, but I do try to study regularly. Backend development is my strength but I'm interested in being a more well-rounded full stack developer. How much compensation should I be looking for and what are some good companies to apply to? So far Square, Pandora, Salesforce seem to be the most common recommendations here.

      OP
      That's a tough pill to swallow, I have to say. I know I'm underpaid but I didn't realize I was THAT underpaid.

    Chick-fil-A, Home Depot (only half-joking btw, they have okay engineering and decent benefits).
    I don't believe it's possible to find a decent job without leetcode nowadays.
