Recruiters have been after me for over 2 weeks.
Should I consider either of them?

      SWE interns at Jane Street/Two Sigma at NY get 10k/month and housing stipend. And this was around 3 years back.

      Yeah and those interns are essentially the top 1% so I'll add that in for context

      Ahh so you must be a convert from TCS/CTS/INFY etc. That explains 150k . I am surprised it is even 150k.

      OP
      @monolith Agree, I started my career in one of those companies, been Consulting on H1-B for 12 years not associated with any of those companies, lack of awareness and preparation, more comfort and complacency as years went by and I gained some Senior Experience. I admit, I am not the cream, top 1%, but I have been pretty much the top 10% almost all of my career thus far. Hitting mid-life career-crisis!! Amazon online-assessment was a breeze but absolutely unprepared for Onsite, unprepared again for FB phone-interview, overwhelmingly anxious in Google phone-interview, lost in Code-Quality round at LinkedIn Onsite, that was all 18 months ago over a span of 2 years. Hoping to give a good shot again!!

      @Fun22Tango you got this man! Remember, the "cream 1%" also goes through the same Leetcode struggle.

      Get that leetcode premium and setup your interviews so you have the ones you really want at the very end (so you get practice from others).

      And to answer your initial thread question, yes, go for it and give it a shot. You can easily get around 220k-250k TC with your experience. Don't worry about wlb.. The companies you mentioned shouldn't be THAT much worse. The first few months making any switch will suck but think of that sweet TC increase as motivation.

      Yet to begin application process. At this YOE, wlb is more important than TC. Any poibters to what to expect for Lead Android Role will be welcomed.
