How are big tech companies approaching salary for core jobs that used to be in the Bay Area but are now remote (North America wide)? Do they scale it based on city you live in?

Most companies have identified pay ranges for every role in major cities. Salaries are adjusted up or down based on where you fall within the range.

Scale. I think I took a $35K pay cut vs living in the bay area. It's a good deal. It would cost me way more than 35k to have the standard of living in the bay area.

They typically have tiers depending on the city/metro area and corresponding pay for each tier. It scales based on the city/general area you live in, whether you are remote or hybrid. Search a bit on google and you’ll find plenty of examples (and many being upset). Some smaller companies (Eg Reddit) have all pay tied to HCOL rates and equal wherever but the biggest tech companies don’t seem to be doing this.

Yeah, there are Tiers and your salaray range falls within the Tiers your city falls into

Yes, most companies scale it based on city

Depends on the company, but most adjust based on COL.

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
