What companies can match or beat my TC?

Amazon HouseBezos
Apr 2 34 Comments

I'm earning 245K w almost 4 YOE as SDE2 in Bay Area. Looking for Bay Area companies. Open to move to NYC.

I'm looking for established companies or Unicorns. No finance companies like Citadel.

I'm asking so that I can aim for the next best thing.

I know Google and FB for sure.
Edit: Adding Ubsie and Linkie.

    Don’t run after money early on in your career, find a team and organization that is willing to give you chances to progress is career. You’ll come out on top later on, 30-40k hike does not go a long way after you deduct tax on it in the valley, the money you are chasing is not worth it.

      Good advice unless you plan on exiting the industry early, in which case the 30 to 40k today is worth it, if you only plan on working for 10 years

      As long as you have an ultimate thing you want to do that’s not working as an engineer in a tech company, making more money will get you there sooner

      I actually meant 30-40k pre tax and post tax you’ll probably get 55% of it in hand which is not a lot in the valley 😬 clarified above

    None. You are overpaid for 4 yes experience.

      No!! I know a guy with 3 YOE at FB earning 280K. I know I can do better. There's much more I should aim for.

      It's pretty standard to be making 300k at FB with 4 yoe though

      As an outside applier not really. Plenty people I know with 7-8 yoe get E4 and promo within a year. Similar to Google

    Uber can beat that. Do you have experience mentoring juniors? If you blitz the interview you could make L5 and earn 350-400

    Even if you only get L4, high end of L4 can get maybe high 200s

    • Those numbers include paper 💰 that will most probably be divided in two in a couple of months. Just a word of caution...

      Even FANG stocks are paper money until they vest.

    • Of course but history and fundamentals of those stock tell us they will most probably not fail or be divided in half.
      Uber on the other side got a very high probability of going down. Going up? Most probably not after what we saw with Lyft

    It depends what you can offer. N years of experience is meaningless. What is that you can do that other Joe can't and that sets you apart. How much of wisdom were you able to gather in your 3 year old tenure.

    TC looks reasonable for a generalist with some experience.
