Dear data engineers, grasp the market before discussing compensation. Aim for 4-5L for each year of experience (YOE). Seeing undervaluation in the corporate world and budget complaints is disheartening. You create and manage data pipelines, vital for their data infrastructure. Without it, multiple departments become non-operational. If they lack budget, it's their issue for quoting a low bid on the project. Remember to know your worth and ask for 4-5L for every YOE.

Agreed. I recently gave a data engineer round for a product based organisation and during the hiring manager round, the manager asked that I was quoting a higher amount and that I should lower expectations and maintain a healthy market.
I've never been more disappointed post an interview.

I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!
