Comp check

Undisclosed comp2
Aug 12, 2018 36 Comments

Total comp 250k. 2 yoe. Bay Area. Is it good or can I get more in F or G?
Masters degree. General backend.

I am trying to find if it's worth spending time to leetcode again.

Serious question. Trolls, please stay away :) thank you.

  • Pretty good, where you work?

    • Hell no. For 2 years that is good. You almost need to be principal level to make 250k.

    That’s peanuts. You should be at 500k at least.

      Disagree with trolls. $250K TC with 2 yoe is very good. F or G will offer a similar range unless you have very specialized skills.

    • 500k at amazon is a principal level :) 10-20 YOE ;)

  • I don't really know, but 250k at 2 years sounds good. Is any of that paper money?

      Paper is never as good as cash. Only if you can sell them is it as good as cash. Don’t drink your company cool aid. I would take $250k at FB/G over a private company any day

    • And just to be clear, paper money means equity that you can't cash out even once they vest. If it's shares in a public company (you can sell the shares in the open market for cash) then it's not paper money.

      Are you still saying half of it is paper money?

    I know people at Google who joined as new grads around 2 years ago and they are making around 250k too. I would say your comp is ok. They questions you should be asking are whether there are any other reasons why you would like to join F or G and whether you have potential to reach 350k, which F and G pay to E5 and L5.

      I could get promoted in my current company to L5 and get to the same comp. Thank you for your answer. I guess it's not worth leetcoding rather I should focus on promo.

    OP you need to mention that it's mostly paper money. Otherwise 250k liquid money for 2 years is fantastic.
