Target grs101
Oct 1 46 Comments

I got an offer from Capital One as a Senior associate data scientist at their San Francisco office with a base of 150K, and a joining bonus of 10k. I have 5 years of experience as a Data Scientist. Is this the usual TC ?

      Is this for SF? My title would be Senior Associate, which is one level below Principal Associate.

      Solid salary for that level but depending where your experience is from you may want to see if you can come in at principal

      Solid salary for Cap 1. But you should def apply to other companies for better TC.

    Thanks - are you saying your experience in SF hasn't been that great? And you mention 200K - is that your TC at Capital One, or the new company?

      The problem is that every company around the block either pays well with a large presence (Salesforce) or gives benefits such as free food and gym money. C1 SF has neither of those things despite if you travel to HQ or Richmond, they have subsidized food and a gym. In a lower COL

      Capital One is good to work for if you live in DC, Richmond, or Plano (just outside Dallas). SF struggles from being far away from hub hub of the business

    Senior associate basically means "just above junior developer". Most people get that promotion in 2 years or less probably why it's on the low end. Go for principal associate/senior dev at 5 YOE if you're looking for more.

    But don’t take my word for it. Just search desu and you will learn a lot about how C1 is

      I'm sorry. I'm new to Blind and wasn't sure what you were pointing to. I did find out now, though.

      Do not listen to this guy, desu is a person who used to work for C1 until he got placed on a performance improvement plan and rage quit

      Yeah desu is just a butthurt former TDP who underperformed and hasn't gotten over it.

      I mean it’s not like desu made up his terrible experience with C1. I hope OP won’t have such a bad experience but considering how C1 is often the butt of jokes, it’s not surprising to say the least

    Senior Associate is a bit low for someone with 5 YOE. TBH though, the pay is going to be pretty shit regardless.

      Although I will say I haven’t really learned much from C1 which makes my second job lot harder for me

    You could get that (or close) in McLean with a lower CoL, so I'd say it's low. Also heard we're shutting down SF offices? I think there are some other threads on Blind about it.
