My (basic, uninformed) understanding is that their progression is much slower in title, though likely not pay by too much.

You could also reach out to any employees who have left CV to ZS (one comes up in recent memory) — I’m sure they would be more than happy to chat.

For those who have successfully made a career pivot into a new field, is it recommended to apply for the equivalent title in the new field (i.e. Senior to Senior) or is it more effective to apply for a title that is a step back from your current role (i.e. Senior to Junior)? I’ve heard arguments supporting either strategy but am interested in hearing about the personal successes that people have had.
