When/how do you stop chasing higher comp?
TC 320. and I still think about what if’s. Basically, I only see following routes as realistic options to get higher comp:
- Getting promo: BUT I know L6 life would be very stressful if I could even make it.
- Join pre-IPO: BUT, there’s no guarantee one of the unicorns who gives out paper money will actually help me earn more.
- Get GE(greatly exceeds) or higher consistently in reviews and get lots of RSU refreshers (not sure if this is even realistic)
I feel like I already make good money and maybe I should just maintain MA performance and stop chasing higher comp. I mean, at some point it’s natural that it hits plataeu, right? However, a piece of my ego always makes me feel guilty about being content and not working hard towards more $ especially when I know my family (I support a large number of ppl) can really benefit from the extra savings.
Can anyone share their experience about how you achieved a balance within yourself?
