Higher designation or higher pay
What will you choose?

Pay๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป coz higher designation comes with more responsibilities and work load with less pay so go for lower designation with high pay for stress less life.


Designation is important, Paisa to ata jata rhta hai.


Personally, I would rather remain SDE3 for my remaining life and try to maximize CTC than become SDM.


A balance between both based on my experience. If I being given a higher designation for lesser experience, when I jump I may not get the same level as my level exp may not match the expectation. Same with pay, no one wants to be an over paid resource, you know why ;)


I am sorry, looks like you never understood my point, if your company plans to layoff, you would be potentially in the list, secondly if you were to look out then you would be competing with folks who are at lesser cost than you.


It's simple, even for those who would say they want designation-
Option 1- Tech Architect with 25 LPA.
Option 2- senior software Engineer with 80 LPA..

Option one is obvious choice above..

But when salary is same then definitely designation would be preferred.






Higher pay obviously ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ higher designation won't pay your bills or help you buy a car/home

Pay. As with more designation, you are squeezed to the max with no real benefit.

Hi folks,

Any suggestions for cloud security courses to enhance learning and resume.

I a mid-level litigator and have an offer at a FAANG, however, I still have roughly $230,000 in student debt. If I can delay my start until June, I will receive the newest round of special bonuses and can make a lump sum payment of ~$50,000 (all principal with the 0%). If I decline the offer and stay with my firm, I can make another $50,000 payment at the end of the year. I ultimately want to be in house, preferably in tech. Would I be crazy to decline to use the bonuses to make big chunk pmnts?
