- ICF / Eng SouDaYou should move when you feel you're not growing anymore or if you've lost interest in the projects and wanna switch to a different org. 4 months is too soon to be thinking about moving 🙄
- Google / Eng poogersmoreGetting promo will make it easier to switch companies without being down-levelled. If you leave before promo you're going to effectively reset your progress toward next level, even if your comp doesn't immediately take a hit.
Of course some companies (Google) are still going to down-level you unless you have > 3 yoe or are a leetcode god.
- In NYC you should really be looking at finance esp with ML experience. There are a lot of hedge funds that will pay that much.
- I mean these days engineering skills are more in demand, but you can do "data science" at a hedge fund (usually this is curating and onboarding alternative datasets, I think) and be paid pretty well. Core infrastructure engineers are paid really great in hedge funds and prop shops these days despite no PnL.
