I am posting this for a girl friend of mine who doesn't know what Blind is. She is interviewing for a principal software engineer at Splunk and would like to know the expected TC.

Any principal software engineers at Splunk here?

I heard the company is doing good.

Her current tc: 160k

    They don't have principal listed on levels, but they do have senior. You could make estimations based on that.

      Whoops. I'm the jackass now.

      I didn't realize if they have too few data points they won't show the salary on levels.

      I apologize.

      Damn, WTH, levels. You can't even drill down to see principa salaryl. You have to search and find the needle in the haystack.

      It’s because the data shown and the data from comp.fyi isn’t normalized. People put in Principal SWE vs P5 which is why it doesn’t show

      There were a few other levels for which there was no salary data on levels.fyi

      Is that 150 per yr or for four years. Are u a principal swe yourself?

      Not a principal but know a few data points. It is per year. But comes to your friends particular case, I agree with the other comment that she might get low balled or downleveled, unless with strong competing offer

    • Adobe / Eng Pieceful
      Do they ask for a proof of the competing offer?

    You can shoot for 400k for principal roles. But mostly you will be downleveled to senior with a TC of 250k

    OP, check page 2 here. Only 1 data point, but better than 0.

      Can you please scroll down page two and explain how is that 535k TC calculated. I don't get it.

    • Amazon / Eng cayde
      Whoa. Good point. What is that about? Looks like it should be <400k based on the numbers.

    • Adobe / Eng Pieceful
      True that. Dunno how levels.fyi calculates stuff and then the Blind community goes bonkers over it.
