What the... ? Please tell me this company values IC’s more than this...

Inverse pay bands (lower is more money) but translates to a 2nd level manager for top IC pay band. Glassdoor shows Distinguished Engineers / DMTS averaging $150k.

Night and day from AT&T whose management level engineers have 4 levels:

- Senior (1st level mgr) $120k cap
- Principal (2nd level mgr) $160k cap
- Lead (Director) $220k cap
- Distinguished (VP) $280k cap

      Bigger company
      Deeper pockets

      Can’t find any drawbacks

      Yeah but we have 5g in 1 city. Suck on that. That’s literally 10 people using 5g, you can’t touch this.

    Are these caps for base salary or TC? How's the bonus/stock structure?

      All caps stated are base. Bonus for 6V at Verizon is 20% which maps to a L2 at AT&T who only gets 12%.

      What about bonus for L3 and L4 at AT&T? Do they get stocks/RSU too?

      L3 Director I know is 25%, I think L4 VP is 40% but not positive on that one.

      No idea about RSU. Verizon offers them as low as 6V and directors (5V and above, its inverse) have a special executive compensation package tied to the title, not the hire offer or location.

      AT&T probably offers RSU at similar bands but only has special comp like VZ does at L5 (SVP and above). L1 and L2 are on the same benefits structure (for time off) and L3 and L4 are on the same structure (they get like a week more).
