Depends on the industry. If it’s finance/insurance, then yes. If it’s FAANG, probably not.

Not all industries are going to pay the same amount for similar roles.

Yeah I want to compare if I am making enough against my peers in the same field.

Purely from a COL / YOE ratio standpoint, no. Honestly you’d be making more working at a bank in Charlotte with much lower cost of living.

Yeah my manager briefly mentioned that I need to acquired # of years to be in a higher role, that’s why I want to negotiate unfortunately. 😂

I have been a BA in tech teams for almost 6 years now and I recently got offered from JP Morgan and chase. The base salary they offered was 108k with 0 additional bonuses or allowance. I am planning not to accept it.

What level of BA role is it? I’m a Principal BA so I don’t know if that makes it higher. If anything, come to SVB - we are hiring!
