Hey 🐟, any advice on handling compensation bait and switch? Worried I'll get an offer way less than the range a recruiter gave me on initial calls.

Why are you worried? Did you discuss it?

The range just sounds too high for the job. They floated 200-250% my comp and similar roles offer much less (80-140% my comp). The company is big tech so it might be a retention tactic or something, but it sounds too good to be true.

Follow up: no bait and switch. Sadly, I was beat in the final round. Back to the mines, I guess.

For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.

My husband and I are looking to buy our first home. We live in HCOL, so the loan is most likely going to be jumbo. In your experience, is it better to go with bigger banks or smaller lenders for jumbo loans? We have enough cash to put 20% down, but would prefer not to do that and go with 15% down instead - do jumbos typically go with 15% down and no PMI? We also have an option to borrow from 401k or to sell 1/3 of our investments to raise cash if PMI is too high. What would you do? Any advice?
