After 2 years at my company (Multi national company with >1k employees) I was promoted to Senior SWE with a 10% salary bump from 85k to 93.5 I live/work in the Baltimore area which I consider Medium COL. Is this a reasonable adjustment for a senior promotion in this area?

I don’t believe the salary bump is acceptable. That is not a competitive salary bump. As a senior SWE with a decent amount of experience over 5 years you definitely should be making over six figures

I’d say so, but interested to hear what others think based on their experience.

Well here's the thing, business owners don't pay you on what they think you deserve they pay you on what YOU think you deserve. So in other words, if the offer presented seemed questionable that's your time to negotiate and explain to them why they need you. .

It should probably be a little higher. Maybe 20%.

Hello! I joined a company in the UK 6 months ago, and received a £20,000 gross sign on bonus - clause associated to this however was that I stay for a minimum of 12 months. Unfortunately, the role is really proving to be the wrong fit, and I am looking to leave.

Question for you all - if I resign, I assume I would be expected to pay back the sign on bonus despite me only receiving approx 12k after tax. Anyone know the process for a tax clawback for something like this? Thanks in advance!

FISH FAM! Looking for advice on late-stage startup offers:
 
Currently at 140k base and have two offers:

- Offer 1 – Growth role: 130k base + 160k Stock Options (vesting over 4 years)
- Offer 2 – Business Development role: 160k OTE (120k base + 40k uncapped commission) + 180k RSUs (vesting over 4 years)
 
Are these offers within the right range? And which to prefer? I like both roles but IMO, offer 2 has a better comp package, whereas offer 1 has more upside considering the stock options.
