For folks who left consulting at manager level and went to FAANG or equivalent, did you take a pay cut? Im getting a lot of ranges from recruiters that are about 30-50k below my current comp for mgr and sr manager roles, even when factoring in equity (most are around 100k 4 yr vesting). So I’m interested in knowing what kind of roles are ppl looking at to get these 30% bumps on FB or should I be asking for way more?

First need to figure out if you’re overpaid in your current role or getting lowball offers from FAANG. I’m willing to guess the latter.

FWIW I am making the switch in July. My increase is ~65% at base (including equity) and ~120% total comp (with bonus). Currently a manager, but also underpaid in current role.

@M1 SF and 7 YOE. 4 yrs post mba from m7 school. What is a reasonable amount of equity? I see ppl posting that they get 400k with 4 yr vesting and 200k+ base and 15-20% bonus. Which is definitely not what I’m hearing from recruiters, from what I’m hearing i might need to take a pay cut so Im trying to gauge reasonable amount to ask without them laughing in my face lol

I think you should be negotiating more aggressively. The RSU stated is absolutely the standard for non-tech (SE) roles, but you should be pushing them wrt. base/joining bonus.

I would saying pushing RSUs from approx 100 to 200 might be bit of a stretch, as these figures are usually driven by standards associated with the position level being offered to you, as well as the type of role. but would always push as much as possible, given your current comp.

Shit is crazy here - how do I tell them I’m out?
