TC 140, the Blind gods moved me to interview, and I did well in an onsite, but the range the recruiter gave me is 140-145 πŸ‘Ž I have other interviews (onsites) lined up this week, ranges are closer to 170-190. I really like the company but they are definitely lowballing for 4 yoe. (Obviously, I need to LC)

What is a reasonable ask for a well-funded startup in the security/networking space?

What is a good minimum jump for moving roles? 30%? (based on increased responsibility). For a 10-15k bump, I don’t think it’s worth the trouble to start over in a new company

  • TC's you see here only apply to top companies, mostly covered by RSUs. Some rando startups aren't gonna pay as much as you would hope.

    I would only jump if 30%+.

      My current TC is low compared to colleagues, could be in the 180 range at current place.

    15% if it's a sideways move ie just as good benefits and climate and people. Most companies promote only when you move, so you'll get shafted staying anyplace more than 3-4y.
