As a 3rd year SC making 88k, I have an offer for 185k. You can do better.

How many YOE? 3 total? and what type of role if you don’t mind me asking

Is that TC or base? If TC you could def do better than 200k. For base, it’s a toss up depending on role and location and YOE. You could probably get higher, but if you’re not in a HCOL city or a high paying role/industry, 200k base for good WLB is really solid

Just base. Chicago. 13 years experience

I made a tech Manager exit from D at 195k TC to Senior Product Manager at AMZN for 250k TC several years ago. It obviously depends a lot on the role but at FAANG, mid 200s TC is pretty standard.

I can’t relocate from Chicago

What's your YOE?

Take the FAANG role

yeah that is disgustingly low

For Chicago though?

like

Meh this app can be pretty (ok very) out of touch sometimes. 200k base for Chicago is really solid, not knowing what the TC is

TC = total comp. and yeah, FAANG from Chicago is not super likely, I don’t know that any of them have hubs there (and fully remote jobs don’t seem to be the norm at FAANG)
