Time to reevaluate my current postion?

Oct 11, 2019 11 Comments

I am a grade 8 engineer at cisco(wireless)

I am more into application development than networking ( which i had no experience before this)

I make decent money. not in par with what people make in bay area though.

TC : 145k base + 70k rsu(over 4 years) + 12 % bonus(ipf this half year was 1.4)
yoe : 3.5 years

If I start leetcoding and try to get a job in company like amazon, msft. etc.(i have call from google, amazon, msft)

I would like to know the tradeoff between wlb and TC. I am not the type of person who can give the soul to the company, but will work 110% if i believe the company and my contribution meet at some point.
