How much do people at FAANG really make? I’ve seen a lot of posts here but most people are misleading. I think they have base & bonus (similar as us) but the differentiator is RSU, but it’s vest over

The money is definitely good on paper but folks should also consider the high cost of living and taxes where the FAANGs are located. You’ll be making big boy salary but living like a college student 🤣

Tech has better WLB, boring repetitive projects as you will be supporting sales or cloud strategy. Your base will definitely take a hit but RSU’s will cover for it. Also the engineers are held with more prestige than strategy folks because they are revenue centres. FAANG is good if you want to have a chilled out lifestyle and ready to retire.

From my experience it’s chilled. At least with google. Very good WLB. Base is not as good

If you're an entry level dev it's like 120k cash plus RSU and bonuses. FAANG arent easy to get into, just like how top, well paying firms aren't easy to get into. Plus the skillsets don't always overlap at the entry levels.

For comparable ability and work responsibility I believe tech pays better than consulting. Certainly outliers exist in both. Are you interested in switching, or just general curiosity? Pretty reasonable pay bands are available at levels.fyi

Need advice. I’m a super senior content EP at a well known agency in the U.S., where I’ve been for quite some time. Checked out http://Glassdoor.com, and I make at the high end of the ranges for similar agencies. In the past year I’ve also taken on additional responsibilities (outside of traditional EP duties) that have doubled my workload and raised my profile quite a bit.  How should I go about brining up a sizable salary bump (some creatives and even planning peeps earn more with much less responsibility)?

My most recent director told me that my time is being charged as Sr Consultant, so that’s the expectation for my performance. My title is associate, so two levels below a senior consultant. My last two appraisals have been scored against senior consultant roles, which my company has used to justify why I’m not eligible for a salary increase or promotion to consultant. Is this normal?
